ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – New Mexico United unveiled their new third kits for the season. On Sunday, the team launched their kits at the Electric Playhouse where fans were able to go out and meet some of the players while shopping for the new kits.

In partnership with the Electric Playhouse, the jerseys feature a Puma logo, and this year, the team left behind the classic yellow and black. The new jerseys are in electric turquoise.

“Turquoise is something we’ve always wanted to do. Obviously, turquoise is tied to the hearts of New Mexicans. It’s our official state stone, it’s included in jewelry here, it’s included in our leatherwork, and it’s included in clothing. Turquoise is a part of New Mexico,” said Director of Communications for United, David Carl.

COVID-restrictions were in place on Sunday. This is the third kit the team has released.

CORRECTION: A previous version of this story stated the turquoise kits are new home kits. However, they are the team’s third kit.
