Electric City FC Unveils Inaugural Kit
Electric City FC jumpstarted its time in League1 Ontario with an impressive away showing against the reigning champions last night, where fans also got a first look at the side’s truly sharp-looking jersey.
The Peterborough-based club brought in two busloads of fans to get local eyes on the historic moment, and we have to say the inaugural Electric City FC kit is a sharp one: a familiar yellow electric bolt design streaks through a black backdrop, with a careful inlaid map of Peterborough nestled into the bolt itself.
Here’s a closer look at the kits:
The night of action ended in a nil-nil draw between two sides expecting to be league heavyweights: the chippy affair resulted in several yellow cards, with Electric City FC’s best chance falling sideways after a miscommunication between Jordan Brown and Ethan Gopaul. These are the kinds of moments one sees at the start of a club’s season, but it looks like Electric City FC has all the right ingredients to become a League1 Ontario powerhouse.
…that is, before they turn professional if all goes to plan.
Peterborough’s Electric City FC is backed by a solid ownership group and it’s Club President, Rob Jenkins, helped launch CPL side Cavalry FC back in 2019. The inaugural roster boasts plenty of players with pro experience, with USL winger Zach Ellis-Hayden, former CPL talents like Jordan Webb, Jordan Brown, Luke Green, and Quillan Roberts, and proven athletes like Zak Drake and L1O all-star Ethan Gopaul on the books.
Helmed by experienced Welshman Jamie Sherwood, fans are likely to see those inaugural kits celebrate goals aplenty as the 2022 League1 Ontario season carries on. The men’s team will play the North Toronto Nitros away next week before its home opener against Windsor TFC on May 7.
