Bay FC has revealed its first-ever uniform.
The kit is a white uniform, designed by Nike, with gray accents throughout. The Bay FC crest is on the top left corner, with an inaugural season patch on the bottom right. A pair of light gray shorts will accompany the jersey.
“I just think about what’s going to happen in those jerseys and the life these players are going to breathe into them, the things we’re going to see them do and celebrate with them,” co-owner Danielle Slaton told The Mercury News. “That’s what gives me goosebumps.”
Many had strong feelings about the kits, most questioning the decision to put gray on white. Some likened it to fog.

“All the team color ways popping off in the bay and they went with this 😭😭,” one person said. “change the team name to Fog FC and I’ll change my tune about this jersey.”
Others pointed to the fact that the NWSL is trending toward black and white kits, calling out Nike for the designs.
