Confirmed & leaked home kits: MLS 2023 season
The 2023 MLS season is fast approaching and clubs throughout the league are starting to show how they'll be dressing for the action.
MLS kits run for two seasons, so a number of teams will be donning the same jerseys they did in 2022. However, there are plenty that will be revealing a new look, which is always exciting for supporters.
Already, we're starting to get a first taste of the fresh new kits we'll be seeing in 2023, so let's take a look at what we know so far...
MLS 2023 kits
After two years with the BLVCK Kit - loved by some, nicknamed the 'Five Strings' by others - Atlanta United are returning to their roots with a throwback to their first-ever home jersey worn by their 2018 MLS Cup-winning side.
'The 17s' Kit' is a two-black, three-red striped number with a gold trim, and fans are already showing their support for the new twist on an old look - though it is curiously missing the star signifying their MLS Cup win at present.

The Chicago Fire will continue with the popular 'Water Tower' kit in 2023.
FC Cincinnati's new 'River Kit' primary jersey is quite different from the one they wore between 2021 and 2022. Gone are the vertical stripes, replaced by a kit that pays tribute to the Ohio River and various landmarks throughout Cincinnati.

The Columbus Crew will continue on with their gold and black kit in 2023. The kit itself is pleasing on the eye, but the club's new crest continues to be highly unpopular.
Wayne Rooney's DC United will remain in their simple black and red kit in 2023, when they will look to drastically improve on their bottom-of-the-East showing from last season.
Inter Miami finally revealed a pink home kit ahead of the 2022 MLS season and it has proved very popular. Fans will be glad to see them lining up in the same attire for another season.

The 'Interboro' jersey is everything you'd expect from an NYCFC release: sky blue with a deep navy blue trim, with orange running down the sides and around the neck.
Featured on the front this year is a mosaic version of the club's crest, and a symbol in the form of the Statue of Liberty’s torch.
New York Red Bulls
We're yet to see any details regarding the New York Red Bulls' new primary jersey, though they often wore the 1Rimto kit in home matches last season.
Orlando City SC
It looks like Orlando City will be adding a gold trim to their traditional purple home kit in 2023. Based on the limited leaks we have so far, this one could end up being very popular.
The Union will look to go one better and win MLS Cup this year in their 'For U Kit' after losing to LAFC in the final in 2022.

Toronto FC appear to be taking a sharp turn when it comes to their look in 2023/24, adopting black and dark grey hoops as the base, which is bold considering they're nicknamed 'The Reds'.
Red is, of course, still present in the form of stripes between the hoops and on the arms.
The fan reaction to this effort has, so far, been rather negative.
Austin FC's new jersey is very different from the one they've sported across their opening two years in Major League Soccer. Gone are the five bold stripes across the front, replaced by a mish-mash of Verde and Green patterns, designed to pay tribute to all corners of the Austin FC community.
No change for the Rapids who, at present, are without a sponsor on the front of their jersey.
