The Los Angeles Galaxy revealed their latest third kit on Saturday, picking a design from fan Carlos Rodriguez, who won a contest through Facebook and the LA Galaxy.
The design is said to be a throwback to the inaugural season of Galaxy soccer, featuring the green, red, and yellow of the Los Angeles city flag. The uniform will be debuted on August 17 against Real Salt Lake.
What do you make of the kit? Like it? Think it’s awful?
Share your thoughts below.
Wow, even the Revs are less mediocre than that kit.

Ahh hahahahaha! As if we needed another reason to hate LA.
Call me crazy after seeing the SBI consensus… But these are not bad at all. I like the idea of tapping into the mls history and the city of Los angeles. I’ve never been a fan of the ‘sash’ look that is currently donned every game for galaxy… Leave that to the usmnt. For usmnt I’m not opposed to the sash because of its history, I much prefer the centennial jersey though. Good job Carlos Rodriguez
You are crazy.
Visual example of democracy in action? Hmm… Would have enjoyed a green and gold third kit, a throwback to the days before the Galaxy were Beckhamized.
Trying to out do those horrible 1996’s uniform?!
There is no truth to the rumor that Beckham left LA because Posh heard this shirt was happening. Or that Addidas had extra Mexico sleeves left over from the Vela shirts they are not selling. Or that yellow colored armpits are designed to mask yellow armpits developing. Or that this is one of George Clooney’s famous practical jokes. Or that a bored NSA agent hacked Carlos Rodriguez’s computer. Or that this shirt will be worn by someone un-ironically…..
You had me at Vela shirts.
Interesting, I saw this today (it’s linked from the LAG news release):
And actually thought them decent. But WTF, calling that a “replica” is generous–it’s a completely different kit (for the worse on the actual one)
It was based on voting, and I can’t help but think it was every other teams fans stuffing the ballot boxes and sticking it to the Champs. I know a while back MLS was having trouble with people hacking and automating the voting for goal of the week, all-star team, etc. Wonder if this was the same crew.
Designed by Chepo
Fan-designed. As in taking a bunch of pigments and throwing them at a window fan.
That’s why fans aren’t designers. Horrendous doesn’t begin to describe it.
Yet more proof fans are idiots.
Terrible. I was moving to LA and was going to buy the next season tickets. However, now I will not. Anything Mexican football related makes me sick, especially if Donovan will wear this. Galaxy bend over backwards for Beckham and now it’s Dos Santos. Terrible.
More like retro hipster pandering.
Fan designed. Whose fans?
it’s hideous! the worst possible color combinations!!!!
The late 90s threw up all over this jersey.
Never ever let fans design anything. I am reminded of the Simpsons episode where Homer designs the Homer-mobile
It’s pretty clear that they photoshopped the tears off of Delagarza’s and Keano’s face. They look very unhappy wearing this atrocity.
I want my eyesight back.
wow, those are hideous, and I cannot stand the Mexican team overtures . Maybe if it makes Rodgers’ play at least somewhat worthy of being traded for Mike Magee I’ll reconsider. thsi has been a lousy few weeks being a Galaxy fan
A coupe more logos please
Maybe the ugliest I have ever seen. I am a Galaxy season ticket holder and definitely won’t be buyting this one.
Just too obvious. I don’t mind a little pandering but this is a little too much.
On the real though, regardless of how the kit looks, good form by LA for getting the fans involved in kit design. Too many teams (mainly European) will accept whatever filth is put forth and run with it. PR A+ from me.
I can agree with that.
LOL That’s what Herb Powell thought!
too many collors going on there
Why not change their name to the LA Galax-Si and just call themselves “el Si” to complete the effect.
Is that red or Irish orange?
is United Colors of Benetton taking over as the shirt sponsor?
Tose are horrific. I wasn’t find of the original 1996 uniforms but they weren’t nearly that bad. How about a throwback to the 97-98 LA kits? Those were class.
Side note: I have a lot of respect for De La Garza. It’s got to be tough growing up with the name Adolph. Also, he never got to live his dream as a Mexican-American to play for Chivas USA, he was stuck the whole time with the losers they share the stadium with.
I wouldn’t go as far to say “awful” but they aren’t the best looking kit around
I think it means the Galaxy signed Dos Santos…………………catering to the new fanbase to come
My thoughts exactly. It’s smart though, Mexicans make up over 30% of L.A. At the same time though that didn’t help Chivas out much. Then again I’d almost say Messi himself couldn’t help Chivas much.
I’m interested in the injury stats after wearing those for a few games–I imagine dressing like a pinata may confuse some opposing players.
Alternatively, was it possible to want to hit Robbie Keane more? These jersey’s suggest “yes”.
Makes me think X-Clan must be part of their supporters group:
“This is protected by the RED, the BLACK and the GREEN…with a key….
Just got back from Mexico, so I am an expert and I say those kits are awful.
Robbie Rogers should of stayed in fashion school!
I’m sure if Rogers had designed the shirt, it’d look a lot less puke-inducing.
Yes, I’d be very interested to see his take on these.
WTF is that? Terrible. Someone call the fashion police, quick!
hahaha I am so glad I am not a Galaxy fan, those look terrible!!
I mean, sure, that definitely qualifies as a ’90s throwback jersey in terms of hideousness, but even, say the Wizards’ “Charlie Brown” jerseys of old weren’t as bad as this one is.
It’s like someone belched the Los Angeles city flag onto a soccer jersey. That’s what it looks like.
Wow! I’ll understate things by saying I am not a fan of the new kit. I do like the Galaxy though. Maybe I’m just not under the spell of the LA city flag.
Those colors make perfect sense, I mean LA’s colors are red, green, and black right?
You forgot yellow and white. I hope there is a purple and orange splash on the back. With blue stitching. Brown numbers. And the name in demin.
To match the jorts, of course.
I feel the term “fan” was used loosely.
Ev’ry ting be eire mon.
Or, wow I didn’t realize MLS was already starting up 90s throwbacks nights, but this isn’t quite like any thing I remember them in.
Disgusting… Could it be any busier? Way too many colors.
my eye sockets are bleeding…
Somebody caption Robbie Keane’s thoughts in that picture
“But I don’t want to play in this!!! WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!”
“This is for the Jamaican Bobsled team right?”
“But I don’t wanna be a pirate!!”
‘Awful’ might be too strong, at least compared with the memory of that horrific Liverpool 3rd kit still burned in my brain. But it’s not good. Not good at all.
I am not quite sure why anyone was nostalgic for the initial uniforms.
oh, don’t these look familiar….
It would have to be improved to reach the level of awful
Ah, the ol’ Mexico Northwest kits. Chivas are going to be irate about this….
“What do you make of the kit? Like it? Think it’s awful?”
…and yes, as a result: I think they’re awful.
pretty smart though. incorporates the LA colors while also looking extremely similar to the Mexico jersey. lol
“pretty smart though.”
No doubt. They’re definitely aware of what they’re doing.
WTF is that a kit?
Probably one of the worst kits I’ve ever seen… and that’s counting the first Clash kit.
That new Liverpool kit is looking better and better after seeing this garbage
I actually thought this kit looked pretty decent. But as a Liverpool fan, my perspective on what constitutes a decent kit might be a bit skewed at the moment.
Though, honestly, I’m not sure what is worse, the LFC away kit, or 3rd kit which is yet to be released. The leaked photos aren’t good though.
Exactly, these are horrible. First thing I thought was Mexico.
Actually, Carlos Rodriguez is a Chivas fan–one of the few remaining. It is Chivas USA’s way of beating the Galaxy.
HA HA, you can’t miss it.
