The bright blue leaked kit is in fact the official third kit for the Seattle Sounders. Today the team announced that the "super cyan" and "electricity yellow" kit will be the primary kit used in CONCACAF Champions League, US Open Cup and Friendlies. It will be worn in a cyan-cyan-cyan system from top to bottom. Rave Green and Cascade Shale remain the primary and secondary kits for MLS play. Though all three kits are now TechFit, only the 2011 kits will have the straps in a non-team color.

Now available online and in official team stores, the authentic men's top comes with a $110 price tag. Like most MLS jerseys it is launched with an intended two year cycle. Within the press release the Sounders make it clear that their third kits will continue to be bold and outside of their traditional color palette.

Sounders FC Reveal New Third Kit for 2012 Season

RENTON, Wash. - The Seattle Sounders FC revealed the new third kit for the 2012 season featuring a color spectrum in the blue/green family named "super cyan" and trimmed in electricity. The signature rave green jersey will continue to serve as the Sounders FC primary kit.

"Super cyan is an evolution of the Sounders FC distinct color palette," said Sounders FC owner Joe Roth. "The super cyan kit with the electricity trim definitely sets the Sounders apart. As always, we're proud to feature Xbox on this and all of our Sounders FC kits."

Super cyan will be worn for Champions League, U.S. Open Cup and friendly matches in order to differentiate between these competitions and MLS league matches. The shale kit will continue as the secondary kit and will be worn when the rave green is in color conflict or is similar to a home team's primary kit.

The Xbox logo is featured prominently on the jersey front with a two-tone Sounders FC logo over the heart. The traditional adidas 3-stripes and trim are electricity. The jersey, shorts and socks will all feature the same color palette.

The third kit features the adidas TECHFIT™ Powerweb technology designed to improve core strength by applying optimal pressure to areas of the athlete's body to increase blood flow. The Powerweb bands allows for maximum range of motion, breathability and comfort. TECHFIT™ focuses the athlete's muscles' energy to generate maximum explosive power, acceleration and long-term endurance.
