ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Saint Louis FC unveiled the club’s official jersey for the 2015 USL season during a ceremonial event at The Union Station Hotel on Monday night.
The jersey’s main feature is a tie-in to the city flag of St. Louis, including a red collar and yellow numbers. On one sleeve is the city flag, while the other holds a patch with the newly designed USL logo.
The front jersey sponsor is Electrical Connection, NECA/IBEW Local 1. The Electrical Connection gives St. Louisans access to more than 100 licensed electrical contractors and 5,000-plus thoroughly trained electricians and communication technicians.
“Much like NECA/IBEW, soccer has a long tradition of excellence in St. Louis,” Executive Vice President Jim Curran said. “We are proud to be part of that tradition through our support of Saint Louis Football Club. We understand the hard work it takes to build and sustain a great team that delivers its best every day.”
"Saint Louis FC is proud to partner with Electrical Connection and their more than 5,000 members," STL FC Executive Director Patrick Barry said. "Their workforce embodies what our new franchise strives to be: a skilled team that works hard every day to make St. Louis a better place to live, work, and play. We look forward to representing the Local 1 organization and the City of St. Louis every time our players pull on their jerseys."
The back jersey sponsor is Mercy. Through the newly developed partnership, Mercy will provide athletic training and medical staffing to STL FC.
“Mercy is a strong supporter of sports and active lifestyles in our region, from professionals to weekend athletes,” Regional President Donn Sorensen said. “This partnership with Saint Louis FC allows us to play a role in bringing a new level of soccer excitement to the community, and in keeping the players healthy and on the field.”
“Getting the right partner in the medical field was a priority from day one,” STL FC General Manager Jeremy Alumbaugh said. “Mercy gives us that partner in many ways. They are pro-active in dealing with our players, in the approach to keeping them healthy and productive on the field. We feel very confident that this is another successful step for the club.”
