PORTLAND, Ore. – Portland Thorns FC today unveiled their primary and secondary jerseys for the 2020 National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) season.
The primary jersey, which is nicknamed the Dark Rose, is the first black jersey in the club’s eight-year history and prominently features stylized dark roses as homage to the City of Portland. The club’s crest, Nike swoosh and Providence Health & Services logo feature Challenge Red hues that pop off the black jersey.

The secondary jersey, which is nicknamed the Untamed Thorn, carries thorn graphics that pull the spirit of the home fans through as metaphorical body armor. Each kit also includes the marker "B.A.O.N." printed on the inner neck, referencing the supporters' favored literary phrase, "By Any Other Name."
