Defending North American Soccer League (NASL) champions Tampa Bay Rowdies unveiled their 2013 home, away and third jerseys from new technical sponsor Admiral earlier this week. The Rowdies’ 2013 home kit will be worn in match action for the first time on Saturday night against Orlando City SC in the pre-season I-4 Derby.
According to the club website: The 2013 Rowdies Kits saw the addition of a black alternative kit that will be worn on select matches throughout the season. The home and away kits continue to have the Rowdies traditional green and gold hoops present on the sleeves.
The new official kits have the NASL Championship Patch on the bottom left of the jersey, commemorating last year’s memorable championship. The kits will also feature an Admiral Official Performance patch on the bottom left.
The Admiral kits have been branded for the Rowdies with the inscription “Come On You Rowdies” on the inside of the collar. The modern collar on both the home and away kits gives the jerseys a modern feel without losing the Rowdies iconic look that dates back to the 1970’s. The back of the collar features the words “Tampa Bay”, while the NASL patch is featured on the left sleeve. Team partner Mainsail Suites, along with the Admiral logo are featured on the chest area of the jersey.
