Today, New York City FC is proud to reveal its new 2017 home uniform, designed by adidas. The Club’s second ever home jersey can be seen in a video in which a young fan’s dreams become a reality, when he gets to swap shirts with his hero, NYCFC Designated Player and World Cup winner, Andrea Pirlo.
Aimed at its younger supporters in particular, NYCFC focused on the kids who are crazy about their team and their heroes on the field. This year, Michael, a young New York City FC super fan, got the very first look at the new home jersey, as he was selected to take part in the animation video to swap out an old New York City FC t-shirt for the new 2017 jersey
For the second year in a row, New York City FC has given a sneak peek of its new uniform to fans first.
The jersey exchange is a storied tradition in soccer history, but usually doesn’t involve making a kid’s dreams come true. The video was created by fusing live action with hand-drawn animation.
