Energy FC unveils 'Electric City' kits
The Oklahoma City Energy are intent on raising eyebrows this year.
The club dropped a new third kit on Thursday, emblazoned with the moniker “Electric City”. Sporting Shock Pink and Energy Green in a zig zag pattern, the kit is impossible to miss, and breathes some more personality into the kits aside from the traditional colors of the club.

“Energy FC represents the people of Oklahoma City," Billy Walton, Energy FC Director of Marketing and Communications, said in a press release. “They are why we play. For 2021, we wanted to take the electricity of this city and put it directly on the pitch. The colors and design of this kit represent the excitement and the energy of our club and our city. The Electric City moniker is one that we believe our supporters can rally behind to show the USL and the nation that Oklahoma City and Energy FC are electric.”
The players themselves are aware of the attention the kits will draw to them, and they’re embracing the change.
“It’s a different look for us and one that’s going to get a lot of attention, which is what we want to accomplish this year,” forward Jonathan Brown said. “After a few down years, we’re looking to make a statement, and this kit, in addition to our play on the pitch, is going to help us do that.”

In many ways, the John Pascarella era truly kicks off for OKC when the Energy host FC Tulsa on April 24. Through the difficulties of playing a truncated season through the pandemic last year, it’s hard to draw any conclusions from Oklahoma City’s 16-game season.
But armed with a revamped squad and a new look, the Energy look to make waves in their inaugural season in the USL Championship Eastern Confernece.
The Energy will debut the new kits in their home opener against the foes from Tulsa, with kickoff on April 24 scheduled for 7 p.m. from Taft Stadium. The kits are on sale now at shop.energyfc.com.
