Revealed: Vancouver FC Inaugural Kits
The Canadian Premier League’s newest teams unveiled their first-ever kits on Saturday night.
Vancouver FC will don a black primary kit that highlights the communities that call the Vancouver area home, whilst the alternate kit features a red-and-black hoop design with echoes of Flamengo.
Here’s the reveal video the expansion team dropped last night:
The kits show Vancouver FC favouring their minimalist V-only variant of their club crest rather than the full circle.
Both kits feature CIBC as the main sponsor on the front following the bank’s multi-year deal with the league. They’re the sleeve sponsors for each of the other teams, but some shots here appear to show Carlsberg adopt this role for Vancouver.
The black primary kit boasts a string of sublimated text that pays homage to lower mainland communities from Burnaby to Port Moody and all who hail from the area, with a gray trim completing the look.
The alternate kit features large black-and-red hoops with a large white trim and collar. It’s a simple but effective take on the club’s colours.
Macron has continued to excel with its bespoke kits for all of the league’s teams. Vancouver is the fifth team to reveal their kits, with the Halifax Wanderers, Valour FC, Forge FC, and York United already releasing theirs.
The VFC kit launch came amidst a preseason friendly against FC Tigers Vancouver, with Gael Sandoval securing the winner through a penalty kick.
The club’s inaugural campaign will kick off on April 15 with an away trip to neighbouring side Pacific FC, who had their prototype kits leaked months ago.
