March 15, 2023 – United Soccer League One (USL1) – Richmond Kickers News Release
RICHMOND, Va. – The Richmond Kickers are excited to unveil the 2023 Red Night Kit from Adidas featuring a custom red and black Mi Competition 21 jersey with white sponsor logos, nameplates, and numbers. Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods returns as the front-of-jersey sponsor, Bon Secours returns as the back-of-jersey sponsor, Prospect Blue returns as the jersey sleeve sponsor, and Nightingale Ice Cream joins as the back collar sponsor.
The Red Night Kit will serve as the Kickers’ primary jersey during the 2023 season, with the jersey making its debut when the Kickers open regular-season play at City Stadium on April 1, 2023, against Charlotte Independence.
Tickets and opening night group packages for the Home Opener are available at richmondkickers.com/tickets.
