New kit announcements are a big deal each year that fans look forward to. Clubs take great care to make sure that the announcement happens at the right time, in the right way, with the proper pomp and circumstance.
Unless, of course, EA Sports accidentally leaks low resolution photos of the new shirts onto the EA Sports FC marketplace.
It appears someone at EA made a mistake as dozens of new MLS shirts appeared on the EA Sports FC marketplace this morning available for in-game purchase.
Sporting KC’s away shirt appears to be among the leaks.
It seems EA may have inadvertently released the new #SportingKC away kit before the official launch.

It’s not a super detailed view, but here’s a slightly better look at the shirt:
Of course we have no way of confirming whether or not this is the actual new away shirt. There have been rumors that argyle was making its return this year, so this leak would seem to track with that rumor. There were also many other MLS shirts leaked in the game, so it would seem unlikely that EA would get that many new shirts wrong, but we won’t know for sure until the new kit is announced by Sporting KC at a yet-to-be announced date.
If this is the new shirt, what do you think? Are you happy the argyle is back? Let us know in the comments!
