It's an irrefutable fact that the most important part of any soccer team is its kit. (Players are also kind of important, just not nearly as much.) Luckily for the many fans eager to add to their collections, the 2017 New York Red Bulls kit is on its way, and will be released at the end of the week.
After teasing the kit release throughout last week, the Red Bulls announced on Twitter that the kit would officially be released Friday, February 17.

Last month images were leaked on FootyHeadlines of the new kit, which features thick red stripes on the sleeves, a red collar with red stripes on the shoulders, thin diagonal red lines spanning across the front from the right arm through the bottom of the shirt and a smaller Red Bull logo.

Instagram user Blurdzn would then create a realistic model of the kit based on the leaked images.
The Red Bulls would release a new teaser image on Monday with the tagline "Relentless."

Based on the two GIFs from the Red Bulls released since Sunday, it would appear that the theme of the thin red lines appears to be consistent.
We will know for sure on Friday.
