Shit Football Kits: Kansas City Wizards’ Radical Rainbow Waves, 1999/00

By Chris Wright

Conclusive proof that MLS was firmly behind the curve in football terms around the turn of the millennium, as it would appear that the level of their kit designs had just reached 1993 by European standards.

Take a look at the togs the Kansas City Wizards (now known as Sporting Kansas City) turned out in for the 1999/2000 season for example.

First up, their shockingly bad “c’mon kids, let’s learn primary colours” home kit…

Christ. It looks like a test card. However, if you thought the home strip was bad, get an eyeful of the away effort with it’s totally rad ‘rainbow wave’ detail…

Bleuurghh!! We think Alexi’s “what the hell is this garbage?” expression just about sums it up!

    Kansas is where you start from when you end up “somewhere over the rainbow?” No, I’m not singing it!

  2. KCYARDBIRD says:

    No way,those kits were all pro.Least shit kit you have posted to date. up the blues

  3. Grant says:

    I have to say that I rather like the home shirt. Nice and simple if you ask me.

    The “mostly white” one was actually a vast improvement over the “Life Savers” one that you didn’t post: http://www.mlsarchives.com/imaging.aspx?image=/images/back/kansascity_wizards_1999_home_preki11_ss_flatback_detail.jpg (The shorts were one leg black, one leg life savers.) Even the “Charlie Brown” one you posted was better than that.

    The original 1996 shirt… http://www.oldfootballshirts.com/img/shirts/429/kansas-city-wizards-away-football-shirt-1996-1997-s_2014_1.jpg …was not completely awful, but just couldn’t make up its mind about what it wanted to be.

    American fashion in the 90′s dont judge us!

    Hey! I’ve got the away shirt! ‘Tis a mid 90′s classic.

  7. Neil says:

    Hideous kits! And ridiculous beard as well.

    I don’t mind either kit and both are great compared to the shit adidas churns out today.

    Is it automatically a “shit shirt” if it’s unusual?
