Guillermo Rivera is truly a community treasure. The Fire beat writer for The Athletic and editor for Fire Confidential is one of the more important voices in Fire fandom, and his sources within the club are stronger than pretty much anyone else in the game. So when he leaks something, you know it’s not just a ruse.
Which is why his sneak peek at the Fire’s 2018 home jersey is very, very likely to be legit.
Some key highlights of this design:
- A wider white stripe framing a bigger Valspar logo.
- White trim around the sleeve cuffs.
- Three blue stripes on the shoulders. (Not sure how we feel about that one, tbh.)
There will almost certainly be some further details and easter eggs revealed when the shirt is officially unveiled, most likely during the Season Kickoff luncheon on February 26th. But this leaked image should give you the gist of it. It’s still red with a white stripe. Rejoice and exhale.
