Obviously, for football (not fútbol), the mashup jerseys wouldn't cut it (there's no room for shoulder pads, for starters). But the Sounders could take a few hints from the design here.
The striped pattern is particularly striking, as is the more subdued sponsor branding. Find a way to tone down the Sounders' current neon-green trim into a darker shade (not too close to Portland's though) and we're in business.
I'd buy one today if they weren't fake.
