New York City Football Club has launched the first jersey in the franchise's history for their inaugural season that will kickoff on March 15, 2015 at Yankee Stadium. The jersey is in City Blue and resembles that of Manchester City's in England. The back neck tie has "New York City FC" written on it in Subway-inspired Helvetica wordmark. NYCFC's badge is inspired by the old New York City subway token, and was chosen by over 100,000 fans. The bottom corner of the jersey displays an inaugral season patch inspired by classic subway mosaics seen throughout underground stations in New York City.
