With the latest MLS jersey releases, it’s t-shirt time.

Philadelphia Union Digital

We’ve now entered the simultaneously most wonderful and terrible time of the year. Not only is it still silly season on the transfer front for MLS teams as we head into preseason, but it’s also the time of year when MLS teams release their newest jerseys. Some of them are exciting and different, but most of them are clunkers. At least Philadelphia is taking a slightly different, more collaborative approach. More news is coming out from NWSL teams as they begin their preseasons, and finally Stars and Stripes FC is back with more stories for Black History Month. I can’t recommend checking them out highly enough.
