BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — For the second straight year, the Birmingham Hammers held the reveal of their jerseys for the upcoming season at Good People Brewing Company, but this time, it was as a member of the National Premier Soccer League.
To a crowd of about 75 people, the Hammers showed off their new home and away kits to the fans eager to see the new look.
This season’s home kit will once again be red and feature blue lettering of the new kit sponsor, BBVA Compass. The road kit will be blue instead of grey this season with white lettering. The kit for the goalkeepers, which was revealed a couple weeks ago by the team, will be florescent yellow with blue lettering.
The Hammers will begin practice for their first NPSL season next Monday, April 18th. Their first match of the season will be May 7th at the Georgia Revolution in Atlanta.
