Philadelphia Union's crest.

We are one inscription inside of the collar-

-Founded: 2008
-Biggest rivals: DC United and NY Red Bulls
-The Union's first game was played on March 25, 2010, in which they lost 2–0 to Seattle Sounders FC at Qwest Field, the first game of the 2010 MLS season. Sébastien Le Toux became the first player to score a goal for Philadelphia in their home opener on April 10, 2010, a 3–2 win over D.C. United at Lincoln Financial Field. The team again played Seattle Sounders FC for the first match at PPL Park on June 27, 2010.

This is one of my birthday's presents, which my father brought from Philadelphia some months ago and has been kept in secret during this time. I've discovered that this was the jersey used by Philadelphia Union in its first year in MLS (2010, they also used it in 2011), so it's like having a piece of history in the collection. I'm not a big fan of the sponsor, but the rest of the shirt is very cool.

I've bought Zamalek SC shirt (Egypt) as a present for myself, so you will see it uploaded in a few days.


  1. The players wear Replica shirt and not player issued.That make your shirt player issued...

    1. Mmm... they're very similar but I think there's a few differences between them. In the player issue shirt the chest is made of a different material, there's an US flag on the left sleeve, there's no TM logo under the crest, and "Jungite au Perite" is written in the back of the collar.
      Anyway, thanks for the comment, your blog is really cool! :)

  2. I want to know where you can buy this football kit?
