When the Cosmos return to the field at Hofstra University’s Shuart Stadium on Aug. 3 for the first time in nearly 30 years, they will sport the same colors and iconic logo as previously adorned by soccer legends Pelé, Franz Beckenbauer, Giorgio Chinaglia and Carlos Alberto during the 70s and 80s, this time created and designed by Nike. “Nike is undoubtedly one of the top sports apparel companies in the world,” Cosmos COO Erik Stover said. “We’re excited to enter into partnership with Nike and join their global soccer family. This is a significant step in our return to competitive soccer and we look forward to growing our long-term partnership.” The Cosmos’ primary kit for the NASL 2013 fall season features a white shirt with green crew-neck collar, numbers and letters, plus white shorts with a green stripe and number. The secondary kit features a similar design with the green and white reversed. Both designs will be worn with white socks. “Nike Soccer is proud and honored to partner with the New York Cosmos to provide innovative performance and training products to the coaches and players of the Club,” Nike Soccer’s General Manager for North America, Mark Seneker said. The Cosmos jerseys will be available for pre-order from http://www.NYCosmos.com/shop beginning in June. The jerseys will also be sold during all Cosmos home games at Hofstra University’s Shuart Stadium this fall. Follow us on Twitter @mobettershoes. You can follow Ian on Twitter @soxanddawgs.
