Are snazzy new uniforms the key to sports success? The Cincinnati Bengals changed theirs up for the 2021-2022 NFL season and were rewarded with a Super Bowl berth. Now FC Cincinnati officials are hoping the same will happen for their own team. FCC debuted a new secondary kit for the 2022 season, and it’s a stunner. Created as an homage to Cincinnati, the Juncta Juvant kit (a nod to the city’s motto “strength in unity,” translated from Latin) is bright orange with embossed monotone, wavy stripes that recall the Ohio river as well as Cincinnati’s flag. FCC’s colorful secondary kit, already in rotation, could offer a morale boost to both players and fans after going 4-22-8 in 2021. Hey, if it worked for the Bengals, it could work for FCC, right?
