The Chicago Fire are getting back to basics ahead of their 2024 season.

What's happening: Before players hit the pitch in March, the club has unveiled its new jerseys (kits), a throwback to the glory days when the Fire won its only MLS cup in 1998.

What they're saying: "We've designed a jersey that not only represents our return to the beloved red but also encapsulates the spirit and energy of Chicago," Fire FC chief marketing officer Dan Moriarty said in a statement.

Context: The club changed from its signature red kits a few years back, replacing them with a dark blue version.

  • The new kits will continue to use the new Chicago Fire logo, plus prominent stars on the side to honor the Chicago flag.
  • It was announced late last year that the Fire's primary sponsor will be Carvana.

The bottom line: Bye, bye blue. Welcome back to the "Men in Red."
