Energy FC and the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum have partnered to pay tribute to the victims of April 19, 1995. A special kit has been designed for 2020, which also coincides with the 25th anniversary of the tragedy that claimed 168 lives.
“The events of the Oklahoma City Bombing, nearly 25 years ago, forever changed the lives of all Oklahomans,” said Jeff Kretchmar, Energy FC Chief Operating Officer. “The strength and love that followed that day inspired a nation and has shaped the direction of our city. When the opportunity came to help the Oklahoma City Memorial and Museum, Energy FC wanted to make sure that it was a tribute worthy of this occasion.”
The field player kit, which includes a black shirt, black shorts and black socks, has silver accents to commemorate the 25th anniversary. There is also a silver Survivor Tree on the nape of the neck.
The goalkeeper jerseys feature the same silver anniversary details, but the prominent color of the shirt is coral.
Field player jerseys are available for pre-order at shop.energyfc.com with 20% of the proceeds donated to the OKC Memorial and Museum. Additionally, the player-worn match shirts will be auctioned off at the end of the season with proceeds going to the Memorial.
The team will wear these for the 2020 Home Opener this Saturday, March 7 at 7 p.m. against Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC at Taft Stadium. More information can be found at energyfc.com/march or by calling 405-235-KICK.
