NEW ORLEANS (May 9, 2024) — Today, the New Orleans Jesters unveiled their ADMIRAL

Home, Away, and Alternate Kits, paying homage to Mardi Gras, the citys unique architecture,

and jazz. 


Back in 1859, the first documented soccer game in the US took place in New Orleans, and 165

years later, this collection honors the birthplace of soccer in America and everything thats made

it unique over the centuries.




We are especially excited to celebrate this 10-year partnership with ADMIRAL and show fans

what we have in store for our 2024 kits,” Jesters Director of Football Kenny Farrell said. Its a

big year, and by working with ADMIRAL, we have been able to create uniforms that we feel

represent both the identity of our club and the vibrant history of New Orleans as a whole.”

The 2024 New Orleans Jesters Home Kit takes full ownership of the Mardi Gras colors.

Reflecting the citys joyful festival tradition, the jersey features a striking color scheme of

Peppermint Leaf, Mystical Grape, and Mardi Gras Gold. Each hue acts as a visual

representation of the values ingrained in New Orleans culture: purple for Justice, green for

Faith, and gold for Power. Finally, the overall pattern draws inspiration from Harlequins and

court jesters, who created their own costumes by sewing together fabric scraps in an elongated

diamond motif.




Highlighting another staple of New Orleans culture, the 2024 New Orleans Jesters Away Kit

boasts a captivating shadow stripe reminiscent of the citys intricate wrought iron balconies and gates that adorn landmarks along the historic French Quarter. The wrought iron pattern also

incorporates a vibrant pinstripe, lending a touch of classic soccer aesthetics to the design.




Finally, the limited-edition alternate jersey draws inspiration from the rich tapestry of jazz history.

The design intricately weaves together iconic imagery inspired by the instruments synonymous

with the jazz genre, creating a visually captivating tribute that celebrates the citys eclectic

musical heritage.




Ive always seen this as more than a sponsorship,” said ADMIRAL Owner Paul Hamburger. To

mark such a special year, we wanted to tell the story of the club through these jerseys. Our latest Admiral ID custom uniform builder, made that vision possible, helping us weave multiple

stories of the club and the city into each kit. The goal was to honor the home of the Jesters and

deliver something unique that would elevate the club,” he concluded. 




Established in 2003, the New Orleans Jesters are the leading soccer team in New Orleans,

Louisiana. The team competes in the Gulf Coast Sunshine Division of the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL), and they play their home games at Pan-American Stadium. The stadium was destroyed during Hurricane Katrina in 2005, but it was rebuilt by the community ahead of the 2008 season. Since then, it has continued to be the home of the Jesters, serving as a reminder of the city and the clubs resilience.
