Major League Soccer, Nashville SC and adidas are once again raising awareness and inspiring action around the impact of marine plastic litter by offering custom Primeblue uniforms made from high performance recycled material and Parley Ocean Plastic™ .
The jerseys will be worn on the field for Nashville SC’s game at the Colorado Rapids on Saturday, May 28. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:00 p.m. CT on MyTV30, NashvilleSC.com/stream, iHeart Radio and El Jefe 96.7.
Committed to taking action to reduce its environmental impact, MLS and adidas have teamed up to create Primeblue jerseys made from plastics intercepted from beaches, coastal communities and shorelines, preventing them from polluting the ocean. Once collected, the original plastic source is reworked into engineered fibers which can then be repurposed for use in clothing or footwear. The high performance yarn contains over 50% Parley Ocean Plastic™ on each jersey.
“Major League Soccer is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and raising awareness of environmental issues, including plastic waste on land and in water,” said MLS President and Chief Executive Officer JoAnn Neale. “We are thrilled to have an innovative partner like adidas who empower our clubs to wear kits that inspire the football community to come together to preserve our ocean and create a cleaner world.”
Nashville SC Primeblue kits are available now at the Nashville SC Team Store or MLSStore.com.
