Las Vegas (NV) -- As Las Vegas Lights FC focuses on-the-field towards its push for the 2020 USL Championship playoffs, work off-the-field for the 2020 season has begun with the design process for next seasons uniforms. Lights FC is seeking input on the jersey's overall concept including; designs, colors, and layout.
Today’s announcement makes it one of the few sports teams (professional or amateur) which allows fans to help design their official jerseys.
“Our fans are the best. They helped design our official logo, and even conceptually named the team for us. Now I want their help to design our new uniforms -- I want us to continue having the most unique uniform design in all pro soccer!" said Lights FC Owner & C.E.O. Brett Lashbrook. “The only rule is to be creative using our official colors of blue, yellow & pink. C’mon Lights fans, let’s see what ya got!”
The process is very simple. Official “design templates” are available for download at LightsFC.com/JerseyDesign. Fans may use it -- or simply provide their design inspiration files in any format by uploading the files (or simply taking a picture of a “doodle” they’ve drawn!). Upon reviewing all design inspirations, Lights FC will work with the design team at BLK, which is the official jersey & apparel provider, to finalize and produce for next season.
The inaugural Lights FC uniform features an emoji on the inside of the jersey. Fans will now be able to pitch in their innovative ideas on what the 2020 Las Vegas kit will look like.
The current Lights FC design was created by Zappos creative team member Fernando Cabestany. As a lifelong soccer fan, he created both the current home and away jersey which was widely regarded as one of (if not the most) unique jersey in professional soccer featuring striking neon tubes highlighting Lights FC’s official colors of blue, yellow & pink.
All types of submissions will be accepted and reviewed (provided submissions from anyone under the age of 18 is accompanied by a parent or guardian signature). The only rule is simple -- use official Lights FC colors of blue, yellow, pink & black in any way imaginable!
Lights FC is seeking design inspiration for both home & away jersey designs for the 2020 season, as well as any creative ideas for potential commemorative jerseys.
