Sounders FC and Xbox unveiled brand new Halo 5: Guardians-themed jerseys that the club is wearing for Sunday’s full-stadium, nationally televised match vs. LA Galaxy on the Xbox Pitch at CenturyLink Field.
The squad, which typically wears its classic Rave Green kit for home matches on the Xbox Pitch at CenturyLink Field, will don Halo 5: Guardians Pitch Black gear.
“Initiatives like this are what make our partnership with Xbox so engaging and innovative,” said Sounders FC Owner Adrian Hanauer. “For the first time in league history, our respective organizations are collaborating to alter the primary partner mark on the front of our jerseys during a regular season campaign. We’re thrilled to work with Xbox on this project, and hope that fans of both Sounders FC and the Halo franchise enjoy seeing our partnership come to life in new and creative ways over the next week.”
The initiative marks the first time an MLS club has altered its jerseys for any match mid-season, as well as the first time Sounders FC has worn anything other than Rave Green jerseys for an MLS regular season home fixture. The new Halo 5: Guardians-inspired jerseys utilize Sounders FC’s Pitch Black third kits. During warmups, Sounders FC players are also wearing limited edition pre-match training tops, custom-made with Sounders FC and Halo 5: Guardians branding.
