NEW YORK – New York City Football Club Friday unveiled its 2022-2023 away kit.

The MLS Cup champions called it the “The Volt Kit,” inspired by the club’s fans that power the it throughout each game and the entire season. In the launch, NYCFC spotlighted members from the club’s two official Supporters Groups, The Third Rail and Los Templados, alongside players.

According to a press release, the kit was inspired by the fans’ energy, the rumbling and clatter of the city’s trains during rush hour and the booming of drums and fan noise in the stands. The design’s primary color is orange and features a navy-blue lightning bolt, representing the electric atmosphere the fans create at matches.

Malte Amundsen, Héber, Anton Tinnerholm and Alfredo Morales were featured in the launch.

“I’m honored to unveil our new kit, especially one that is strongly connected to our fans who are the best fans in the league,” Morales said in a statement. “I know our fans have wanted an orange kit for many years, and it’s even more special they finally have one with a star on it for our MLS Cup win last year.

“Having the fans back in the stands last season was very uplifting for our team. They played an important part in our championship run and I’m proud to wear this kit that was inspired by them.”
