Sacramento Republic FC released their alternate kit for the 2022 USL season Tuesday, marking the fifth alternate kit in the club’s history. The “City of Trees” kit is inspired by the famous Sacramento slogan that graces the Freeport Water Tower next to Interstate 5, the Republic said in a press release.

“The kit design features green wood-grain pattern across a black background symbolic of the shade from Sacramento’s dense tree canopy and urban forest. The wood grain pattern ebbing and flowing is emblematic of how a tree’s trunk adapts over time, growing year-over-year and through adversity, becoming stronger – much like the indomitable spirit of the region,” the press release stated.  

The back features map coordinates of Sacramento above the player’s name, marked 38.5816 N / 121.4944 W.

The third kit launch also includes the announcement of a new partnership between the Republic and Save Our Water and the Sacramento Tree Foundation to create environmental awareness and emphasize on the importance of saving water in the region.

“A core element of the partnership will include highlighting helpful ways the community can care for trees and support the region’s urban forest during the drought. Beginning with Saturday’s match and the six additional matches Republic FC will wear the City of Trees kit, the two organizations are working to create public service announcements, informational campaigns, and more to help encourage water conservation efforts.

“Throughout the season, Republic FC will highlight the Sacramento Tree Foundation to share how the community can create an urban forest canopy that benefits every neighborhood. The Sacramento Tree Foundation will be present at each match the jersey is worn to share how residents can be part of stewarding the urban forest from seed to slab by signing up for free shade trees in partnership with SMUD, learning how to water and care for trees, or repurposing salvaged urban wood for DIYprojects. At the end of the season, SRFC and Sacramento Tree Foundation will team up in South Sacramento to plant native trees at a refurbished futsal court to promote canopy equity,” the statement read.

Additionally, the Republic have dropped a limited-edition apparel capsule to go along with the City of Trees kit. The collection includes a vintage t-shirt, classic corduroy hat, scarf, flag and a wood-grain bottle opener, all available for purchase at the Sacramento Republic’s Official Team Store.

The Indomitable Club will debut their alternate kit this Saturday for the first of seven matches this season. Sacramento Republic FC face off against LA Galaxy II from Heart Health Park at 8:00 p.m. PST. The match will be broadcast on FOX40 and Antenna TV 40.2 in English and Spanish, as well as online at FOX40.com, the FOX40 News mobile app and streaming on ESPN+.
