ATLANTA, GEORGIA—Atlanta United FC is joining the initiative of Major League Soccer to promote environmental protection by wearing a special edition Adidas kit during the weekend of May 28-30.
The PRIMEBLUE kits are environmentally friendly since it is a high-performance yarn made with 50% Parley Ocean Plastic — upcycled plastic waste intercepted on shorelines and coastal areas, preventing it from polluting our oceans.
The kits can be available for purchase as of 11 a.m. Thursday online and at the Atlantic Station team store.
United will start wearing the special jersey in its next home match on May 29 against Nashville SC.
Aside from wearing the special jersey, the MLS club will also hold a week-long online auction of signed, game-worn PRIMEBLUE full kits (jersey [signed], shorts & socks), starting on June 8 (World Oceans Day).
The primary beneficiary of the auction is the Georgia Aquarium’s Research and Conservation Efforts.
The advocacy of the Georgia Aquarium is to promote ocean care through education, preservation, exceptional animal care, and research across the globe.
Georgia Aquarium is famous worldwide since they offer exhibits and programs of the highest standards, and offers engaging and exciting guest experiences that promote the conservation of aquatic biodiversity
throughout the world.
