OAKLAND, Calif. – “Yo, Lin, you good?”
Oakland Roots Sports Club released its official 2023 USL Championship primary and secondary kits on Friday night with a tripped-out video launch led by attacking midfielder Lindo Mfeka and his teammates, and members of the broader Oakland community in a two-minute ode to The Town.
The MEYBA kits feature Oakland Roots SC’s premier partner Anthem Blue Cross on the front of the jersey.
“We are stoked about the 2023 jerseys,” said Roots SC Chief Marketing Officer Edreece Arghandiwal. “We are always looking to tell stories of our history and this year's kits are celebrating the mosaic in our crest, the diversity of The Town, and it reminds all of us about why we do what we do here in Oakland…to spread love and be a club where all people are welcome.”
The mosaic design on the shoulders of both kits serves as a key design feature, while maintaining a sleek look that gives a nod to the inaugural Oakland Roots SC jerseys released in 2019. A lifestyle piece outside of game day, the jerseys can be styled in any which way.
“The entire MEYBA organization is delighted to be Oakland’s official kit supplier. The release of Oakland Roots SC 2023 first and second kits is a date we have all been waiting for,” said Jonathan Jones, MEYBA Global Head of Marketing. “Oakland is an amazing city, and Oakland Roots SC are a very special team. Working in partnership, we are proud to unveil kits the whole city can be proud of as we know we certainly are.”
