Atlanta United will unveil its primary kit for the 2021 and ‘22 MLS seasons Friday at the Home Depot Backyard near Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

The kit, black with five thin red stripes down the center, was leaked weeks ago. The team has yet to confirm that it is official. The kit, dubbed Five Strings by some supporters, is the third for the team going into its fifth season. It was designed by league partner Adidas.

The unveiling will take place during a drive-in event limited to a few season-ticket holders totaling approximately 300 vehicles. The event will include appearances by club president Darren Eales, manager Gabriel Heinze, and feature a laser show.

The show can be watched at atlutd.com/live. It will start at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20.

Those attending will have a chance to purchase the jersey contact-free. It will go on sale to the public Feb. 27 and can be bought at the team store at Atlantic Station or at mlsstore.com.
