Is this the Sounders new 3rd kit? Could be.
As the club prepares to celebrate 40 years since the founding of the original NASL Seattle Sounders, some fans are hungry for a blend of nostalgia and class.
Is not doing something like the design Joel DuChesne crafted a few years back a missed opportunity? Click to enlarge.
This concept was tweeted and retweeted numerous times Monday night and is also gathering plenty of new likes on Facebook.
There is something about the 1970’s wavy word logo and turquoise blue that just won’t let go of people. Joel DuChesne, for example. He took the time to design a very workable third ‘kit’ option for Sounders FC that would honor the club’s NASL brothers of the past. “With the suggestion of many Seattle Sounders FC Fans, I created a white retro kit to serve as a “third” option,” Joel said back in 2010. “This design is intended to pay respects to the many Sounders players, coaches, owners, and others who started professional soccer in Seattle in 1974.”
