Carson, California – The LA Galaxy announced on Thursday the primary kit for the 2016 season. Galaxy fans can buy the new jersey online www.teamlastore.com/collections/galaxy-new-arrivals or by visiting the Galaxy team store at the StubHub Center.

“The new Herbalife Nutrition logo on the LA Galaxy jerseys represents the culmination of an unprecedented 10-year track record of providing the LA Galaxy players with our full suite of products and customized nutrition programs prepared by our staff of nutrition experts,…Our mission is to change people’s lives around the world by providing them with access to good nutrition and a healthy active lifestyle, and we look forward to keeping the LA Galaxy players fueled this 2016 season.” – Michael O. Johnson, chairman and CEO, Herbalife.
The new Galaxy kit will take a traditional route, keeping the sash from previous years, but updating it with two contrasting bars that incorporate the club’s colors. The additions to the jersey highlight the new crest which has one gold star, signaling the Galaxy’s record five MLS Cup Championships.
