“The thoughtful and intentional design reflects the club’s identity in multiple ways. It provides a sense of joyful expression, it celebrates the current energy around the team and the Kansas City community, and it draws inspiration from the landscape of the Missouri River,” Current VP of Marketing Jocelyn Monroe said.

The Current’s kit drop is part of a league-wide release of new primary and secondary kits. For the first time, all 14 NWSL clubs will enter a season with new primary and secondary kits.

According to the NWSL, all secondary kits are designed with a gradient using each club’s colors which is used to signify “strength of the collective.”

The new secondary is an updated look to the 2023 kit which was a solid white top with teal shorts. While it is not an all-teal kit like some fans were hoping for, the introduction of the teal gradient brings a splash of the desired color into the jersey.

“This historic uniform refresh with Nike exemplifies our continued commitment to raising the bar and elevating the NWSL brand with vibrant kits that symbolize the powerful connection between the clubs, players, fans and our communities,” NWSL Chief Marketing and Commercial Officer Julie Haddon said in a release. “We are excited to build upon this energetic moment as we approach our 2024 season kickoff.”

The United Way is the front jersey sponsor, with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City and Ally Bank featured on the sleeves.
