SANDY — While how the Utah Royals will look from a roster construction standpoint in their first season continues to be a work in progress, the team on Monday took a big step in releasing what their kits will look like.
The Royals’ secondary white jerseys were unveiled Monday, which prominently display the “Lioness” logo over the heart that is the primary feature of the team’s logo.
Like all the other jerseys of National Women’s Soccer League teams, Utah’s will have the Nike swoosh, NWSL and Lifetime logos. Uniquely, the Royals’ threads will also feature the logo of Logan-based Conservice — The Utility Experts as part of a three-year partnership.
Team owner Dell Loy Hansen called the agreement “the most lucrative jersey-front deal in American women’s soccer history,” although terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Utah’s primary kits have not yet been released but will be gold-based. The white jerseys will be available for purchase in team stores after Feb. 15, while the gold ones will be available in mid-March.
Utah will begin training camp Feb. 19, with the season opener slated for March 24 and the home opener set for April 14. Opponents for the games have not been announced, as the schedule for the nine-team NWSL (the Boston Breakers folded last week) has not yet been released.
