MLS Team To Put All of Its Season Ticket Holders’ Names on Jerseys

Rapids Jersey fan names

Season ticket holders often feel like they are a part of the team. One Major League Soccer club is validating that feeling by putting the names of season ticket holders onto its primary uniform (called kits in soccer).

The MLS Colorado Rapids will use the names of all 1,451 fans who are season ticket holders in tiny print on its primary kit. The burgundy jerseys will be accented in white, with the names of the individual season ticket holders printed in black to create a hoop-like effect on the kit.

“With our new alternate jerseys featuring the Colorado state flag, and our primary kits including the names of our season-ticket holders, we want to recognize our fans and our state for their passion and support over the last 18 years,” said Rapids president Tim Hinchey in a club statement.

The Rapids are the first U.S. team to do this sort of fan shout-out. A Spanish team used fan names inside its numbers in 2012. Of course, it’s only a matter of time before Hugh Johnson, I.P. Dailey and Amanda Hugankiss become Rapids’ season ticket holders.
