“We are proud to present The 17s’ Kit, which is dedicated to our loyal supporters who have stood by the club from day one,” Atlanta United President Garth Lagerwey said in a statement from the club. “This kit is reminiscent of Atlanta United’s original primary kit, which we know holds a deep meaning with our supporters and still stands as a symbol of the club’s success. Our hope is that The 17s’ Kit is worn during many more unforgettable nights at Mercedes-Benz Stadium and will establish a legacy of its own.”
The jersey features gold trim at the neckline, gold stripes on the shoulder, with the player’s name and number in gold on the back.
The shorts are black with gold stripes and red trim on the bottom of the back. The shorts also feature Atlanta United’s crest with a gold star on the the right thigh and a gold number on the left thigh. The socks are red with alternating black and gold stripes near the top.
The jersey features two tags. One, UN17ED written over a black outline of the state of Georgia, is on the back of the neck. The second, WE ARE THE A, with a golden spike going through the large A, is on the front, on the bottom left.
