New York Cosmos reforms – Umbro makes retro-styled kit

Cosmos1

It seems that the New York Cosmos, the legendary US football (or 'soccer' if you like) team from the 70s and 80s, have reformed. Not only that, there's a new kit – the shirt is pictured above and a track top is pictured over the page, worn by the club's most famous son, both made by sportswear firm Umbro.

The club is apparently back under new ownership, with Pele as its honorary chairman and with the aim of (eventually) competing in the Major League Soccer tournament in the US. But right now, it's focusing on 'elite' youth academies to bring the best players through.

Despite the lack of league action, the club is producing new kits before the end of the year. No news on price or availability, but we suspect there will be big demand when it lands in a matter of weeks.
