Beginning with opening weekend on Saturday, Feb. 25, the 2023 MLS season is suddenly just days away as preseason draws to a close. We've already had key offseason events like the SuperDraft and Seattle's Club World Cup odyssey, but what truly gets the blood flowing is the annual reveal of the latest 2023 MLS jerseys.
As is tradition, every club retains the kit it debuted in 2022 but the 2021 releases are replaced, so each team either gets a new home or away shirt in 2023. Here's everything we know so far about the new threads.
