Oakland Roots SC has partnered with MEYBA to create the official first and second jerseys for the 2023 USL Championship. This follows the release of the popular Black Panther shirt earlier this year.
Chief Marketing Officer Edreece Arghandiwal expressed excitement about the new jerseys, which celebrate the diversity of Oakland and the team's commitment to being a club where all are welcome.
Oakland Roots are a club who are true to its morals. The club formed Oakland Roots Justice Fund, a charitable fund that supports racial and gender justice. They have worked with local non-profit organisations as part of a community outreach effort and also were the first team in the US to join Common Goal.
The mosaic in the crest is prominently featured on the jerseys, reminding everyone of the team's purpose. The sleek design is reminiscent of the team's first-ever jerseys released in 2019 and can be worn beyond game day as a lifestyle piece.
Anthem Blue Cross, the team's front of jersey sponsor, is proud to continue their partnership in addressing health inequities and strengthening local Bay Area communities.
MEYBA Global Head of Marketing, Jonathan Jones, expressed delight in being Oakland's official kit supplier, and is proud to unveil jerseys that the whole city can be proud of.
Fans can purchase the 2023 jersey at the Oaklandish Downtown store or online at meyba.com.
