Minimum Impact: Montreal Unveils Suprisingly Bland MLS Jerseys

Major League Soccer’s 19th team, the Montreal Impact, which will join the league in 2012, raised the curtain last night on the kits they’ll wear in their debut season, and, well, how do you say “Meh” in French?

They’re certainly not a trainwreck (as MLS unis have been in the past), but they’re unexpectedly boring. Apart from a subtle cross composed of fleur-de-lys down the front of the shirt, these unis don’t bring a lot to the table.

They are a long way from being, as Impact vice president Richard Legendre suggested, “the best-looking jersey in the league.”

For our money, rights to that honor would be contested between the Red Bulls’ away shirt, D.C. United’s third kit, or Portland’s Rose City reds (with a late-breaking challenger in LA’s third shirt.)
