The expansion Philadelphia Union has unveiled its home jersey ... for now at least showing no trace of a sponsor.
Here's part of the club's release:
Among the features of the club’s first game jersey:
* Midnight blue is the dominant color * The club crest is centered on the front on a wide panel of Union gold * Above the right breast, the adidas logo, maker of all official Philadelphia Union gear * On the right sleeve, there is an MLS patch * On the left sleeve, there is an American flag * Accent piping, the light blue color of the flag of Philadelphia, can be found on both the top and bottom of the jersey, as well as the tip of each sleeve * Back of collar, “Jungite Aut Perite”, Latin for Join or Die, Benjamin Franklin’s rallying cry for colonial unity.

Philadelphia Union’s first game will take place Thursday night March 25 against the Sounders at Qwest Field.
