The New York Cosmos take to the pitch tonight after decades of inactivity in a testimonial tonight at Old Trafford, and to mark the occasion we’ve got the new New York Cosmos Away Shirt to share with you!
Styled after one of the final New York Cosmos Jerseys, the' New York Cosmos Away Shirt kits out historic clubs with their classic Green, Gold and White livery, this new kits puts the Green back at the front of Cosmos history.
Historically, Green was often the colour that the Cosmos wore at home during the 70’s – so we’re doubtless that many fans will be pleased as punch with it’s return on the New York Cosmos Away Shirt.
Whilst we definitely prefer the clean’n’classy look of the white kit, there’s definitely a lot to be said for such a classic colour – and you don’t see that many green kits anymore!
Retaining the collar of the home kit, the tapered neck of the' New York Cosmos Away Shirt is lower-profile than it’s multi-coloured home kit equivalent, but the white trim is a subtle homage to the famous green strip worn by Pel' & Co. decades ago.
As you would expect from an Umbro design, the' New York Cosmos Away Shirt is full of neat tailored touches that give it a truly bespoke fit, including seams on the shoulder and underarms to provide a fitted form that moves with a player as they play.
Umbro will team the' New York Cosmos Away Shirt, with all-green shorts and socks to form the complete away kit, though it is likely more often than not that the bottle green jersey with the white home shirts where possible for a look truly reminiscent of one of the best kits ever to grace the NASL.
