2010 Wizards Kit Leaked



It would appear that the Wizards new kits for the 2010 season have been leaked out. The above picture was posted on bigsoccer this morning in the Wizards forum. No real big changes to the uniform from last year, there seems to be more yellow piping this year and maybe a little less of the dark blue in the uniform. I do like the white away this year again, it looks good. Overall I like the new uniforms for the team, they have a basic, classic look to them.

I do like the away. Those are pretty sweet.

NOOOOOOOO!!!! MORE yellow piping? The Wizards front office is the devil and is trampling all over our tradition of having 16 different colors and ugly-ass patterns on our jerseys....

How DARE they!

no much change; one of these years it will happen, I will actually like our kits... afaird that might not happen enless we have a total rebranding including name though...

They are in.

I love how the Wizards are able to have a classic looking clean team name - no "Best Buy", "XBOX 360", or "bwin" plastered all NASCAR like on them.

I hope it can remain that way.

Changes to the collar - sort of a tab collar now. Changes to the cuffs on the long sleeve (a half cuff?) and piping end of sleeve in the short sleeve. A "women's" jersey in the Home version. No long sleeve away?

Available 2/25 - that agrees with the onionbag.

You may not like it Ron, but those sponsors bring in a revenue stream that the Wizards are not currently bringing in. Getting a sponsor on the front of the jersey will happen eventually, and hopefully soon before KC gets left behind.

Thanks- I'm aware shirt rights bring in revenue, but I don't think it looks as cool. I like seeing the team name and/or crest standout. The Chicago Fire Jersey looks like an off the rack Adidas shirt with a BEST BUY label - with a tiny Chicago Fire crest secondary to the Adidas logo. What's "Chicago" about BEST BUY? I can at least see the XBOX 360 connection to Seattle.

Any team with the "AIG" - ugh!

So far, MLB, NFL, NBA, and the NCAA have mostly held off advertising on the uniform (except for the uniform manufacturer and maybe the bowl sponsor , but think of soccer patches).

Over at TOFFS, I don't see any football shirts with advertising. I understand if they need to, but I hope the Wizards hold off uniform advertising as long as possible.

They look almost too much like last years. I do like the away though, and if I was going to buy one I'd do that, only because I'm a student who doesn't have much to spend on a kit and I feel like these ones look enough like last years.
Still, they are not bad.
