PHOENIX – Phoenix Rising FC welcomed a large contingent of fans and media to the Marquee Theatre in Tempe, Ariz. on Saturday night for the kickoff to the club’s new season, with the unveiling of two new jerseys for the 2019 USL Championship campaign the centerpiece of the night.
And judging from the fan response in person and online, the new Macron designs led by a Copper State kit that the club will wear in its six Friday-night home games this season are going to be a massive hit within the fanbase.
The all-black kit with copper trim to honor the state's history of copper mining, from which the state of Arizona gets one of its nicknames, is joined by a new red uniform with black sleeves and shorts. The club’s white uniform with red trim that featured in the 2018 campaign will also be featured in the upcoming Championship season.
Here are some of the sights and sounds from Saturday night’s event.
