Once and future king of US soccer, the New York Cosmos remain the iconic American franchise 25 years after their last home game. Founded in 1972, the Cosmos legend was truly born on June 10, 1975, the day they announced the signing of Pelé, immediately turning soccer from a New York afterthought to front page news. Over the next ten years, the Cosmos would win four championships, turn studio 54 into an extension of their clubhouse, and inspire a generation of New Yorkers to play the beautiful game. Inspired by lettering from a vintage program, this shirt pays tribute to the teamʼs 1977 championship run—a moment indelibly inscribed on the sporting memory of the greatest city in the world.
