The jersey numbers and the limited-edition jersey packaging illustrate the history and importance of Juneteenth, and reinforce the notion of “Freedom To Be,” emphasizing everyone’s inherent freedom to be their true selves in every facet of life.
In addition to the Juneteenth jerseys, the Black National Anthem (“Lift Every Voice and Sing”) performed by MLS player Fafà Picault will be played at all 14 MLS matches on Juneteenth weekend. Adidas has created Unity pre-match tops to celebrate diversity and unity. Fans will have an opportunity to purchase the Unity pre-match tops at MLSstore.com and at stadium retail locations.
