Portland Thorns unveil new jerseys

The Portland Thorns have unveiled their jerseys for the 2020 National Women’s Soccer League season.

The primary jersey is nicknamed the Dark Rose, and it’s the first black jersey in team history. Stylized roses cover the front and back of the uniform, a tribute to Portland’s longtime moniker, “The City of Roses.”

The secondary jersey is called the Untamed Thorn. According to the club, this one “carries thorn graphics that pull the spirit of the home fans through as metaphorical body armor.”

Each jersey also features the letters “B.A.O.N.” on the inner neck, a nod to Thorns fans’ favorite phrase, “By Any Other Name.”
