The Seattle Sounders have one of the most passionate fan bases in the MLS which has helped them to second place in the Western Conference of MLS. Whenever you watch a game you can see the stands primarily in their lime green kits to show their unwavering support of their team. However, if you are a fan of the Sounders and don’t feel like dropping $70 on a jersey we have the perfect option for you. The MLS Call-Up jerseys are very similar to the replica jerseys but won’t cost you nearly as much.

These jerseys are the traditional green and blue that the Sounders have worn at home matches since their inaugural season in MLS. The Seattle Sounders emblem is stitched on to the upper left chest on the front of the jersey with the Adidas logo heat pressed onto the upper right chest of the jersey. Therefore, you still get the authentic jersey feel with the emblem stitched on instead of heat pressed. These jerseys also feature Adidas’ climalite technology in order to keep you cool in the massive crowds of people at home games. It has mesh on the shoulders of the jersey as well as under the arms for a breathable cool feel. The major difference between the replica jerseys and the call-up jerseys is the omission of the sponsor in the middle of the jersey, so you will not be able to show off your loyalty to Xbox in this jersey. That is the most glaring difference with some additional subtle differences such as no silver accents on the side of the jersey.

This jersey fits pretty similarly to other Adidas jerseys. They are a little longer in the sleeves but other than that they fit pretty true to size. These are still made out of 100% polyester just like the replica jerseys so you will get a similar feel to the replica jersey. The collar is a crew cut but is not tight and constricting so it will not annoy you while you’re enjoying your favorite MLS team.

This Seattle Sounders Call-Up jersey is one of the best deals going at SoccerPro. Right now MLS replica jerseys are selling for $55.99 while these call-up jerseys are going for only $19.99. So for only $19.99 you can get a quality Sounders jersey and support your team while still having money left in your wallet for more Sounders gear. If you are a Seattle Sounders fan and are part of the most dedicated fan bases in MLS but don’t feel like breaking the bank this is made for you!
