Question Number: 21494

Appearance 6/7/2009

Referee of KC, KS USA asks...

I was wondering when the Adidas jerseys are to come out for refs to use. I'm looking at upgrading my kit to the pro USSF short sleeve style, but debating whether or not to hold off until Adidas takes over (if they do).

I'm selling my old ones? Do you think I should go ahead and upgrade or hold out? What are you all doing?

Answer provided by Referee Gary Voshol

The latest information we have received from USSF is that while the current contract with OSI is expiring in 2010, there has been no decision whether that will be extended or whether a new company will get naming rights.

USSF also confirmed that so long as the team wears the same color, referees still can mix thin and wide- stripe jerseys. I'm updating as jerseys get faded, but only because they need to be replaced.
