With their inaugural Canadian Premier League season right around the corner, expansion franchise Vancouver FC is looking the part in their new home and away kits, made by Macron.
The kits were unveiled on Saturday, March 25, during a preseason friendly match against FC Tigers Vancouver.
The home kit is black with a grey crew neck collar and grey sleeve cuffs. Embossed across the front of the jersey are the names of various neighborhoods, communities and suburbs in the greater Vancouver area.
The away kit, meanwhile, features red and black hoops accented by a white crew neck collar and sleeve cuffs.
Both kits feature a grey bevelled version of the V-bird icon from Vancouver FC’s club crest. The left side is made up of four lines representing “the rising cables that unite the Lower Mainland, bridge by bridge” as well as the “fields of the Fraser Valley and the potential of what grows and thrives here at home.” The right side features the head of a bald eagle.
Both kits also feature the logo of new league-wide sponsor CIBC on the chest in white. Other CanPL teams will have CIBC logos on their left sleeves this season. Vancouver FC will have the logo on Carlsberg 0.0 non-alcoholic beer on their sleeves — the same logo found on the chest of York United’s 2023 kits.
Vancouver FC plays its first Canadian Premier League match on Saturday, April 15, when they visit their interprovincial rivals Pacific FC at Starlight Stadium in Victoria. They don’t play their home opener until Sunday, May 7, when they host Cavalry FC at Willoughby Community Park in Langley, B.C.
