BIRMINGHAM, AL. (Dec. 17, 2018) – Birmingham Legion FC released today the first jersey for the club’s 2019 inaugural USL Championship season. The first kit in club history is the Gold Standard edition, utilizing our core color, Molten Gold, to symbolize our character and sportsmanship, and to set the bar for the club at the highest level.
“Our 2019 jerseys will exemplify who we are as a club,” said Legion FC President and General Manager Jay Heaps. “We have a gold standard set of goals for the club. The Molten Gold in this kit exemplifies that commitment.”
The white and Molten Gold inaugural kit prominently features title partner Red Diamond Coffee & Tea on the front and jersey partner Pepsi on the back. The Legion FC rally cry “Hammer Down” adorns the jersey between the shoulder blades and is paired with our club symbols, the hammer and anvil, which represent not only the city’s past, but also our might and ability to bend opponents to our will.
