Thorns tease meeting about custom Nike kits

It’s exciting news for Portland, and one would hope that other teams will follow suit. But in year three of the league (which somehow still has not actually formally announced Nike as an official sponsor — good insight on that here), that shouldn’t be a hard ask.

Teams establishing unique identities would be good for business, and it would help everyone distinguish between some teams, like when Portland and Western New York play:
