The new Juncta Juvant kit
For the first time in the club's Major League Soccer history, FC Cincinnati
will display a primarily orange kit on the field.
The Juncta Juvant Kit replaces the white Heritage Link Kit that the club sported last season and will be alternated with the familiar navy blue Dynamic Kit against this season's opponents. "Juncta juvant" is the city of Cincinnati's motto and, translated from the Latin, means "Strength in unity."

The kit sports stripes on the front, meant to mimic the Ohio River.
Drawing design inspiration from Cincinnati's flag, "the orange kit highlights the bond between the club, the fans and the city," reads a release from FC Cincinnati.
The front is decorated with shimmering stripes to represent the Ohio River, flowing into a "C" shape that contains the FC Cincinnati crest. In contrast to the orange jersey, the club's silver and navy seal pops against the background.
The club sponsors, Adidas and Mercy Health, are included with silver lettering.
The kit is completed with orange shorts and socks. Extra details include blue trim along the neck and arm cuffs and the "iconic 3-Stripes design in silver on both shoulders," says the release. The phrase "Juncta Juvant” has been sewn into the inside neck tape.
The kit will debut during FC Cincinnati's Feb. 26 away match against Austin FC, the earliest-ever start to a Major League Soccer season. The team's home opener will be March 5 against D.C. United, during which time they'll also be donning the Juncta Juvant kit. See FC Cincinnati's full season schedule.
Fans can either go all in on an authentic Juncta Juvant Kit for $135 or opt for a $90, $80 or $70 replica for men, women and children respectively. They are available at the TQL Stadium Team Store, mlsstore.com
The Team Shop also offers jersey customizations for only $30 which take about two weeks to complete. Visit fccincinnati.com
