Uniforms and jerseys are always a hot topic of conversation for supporters and the 2014 season is sure to provide more kit discussion as the Fire will hit the pitch with a new primary jersey this season. The new look will be unveiled on March 4 at the annual Season Kickoff Luncheon. The event is always one of the highlights of the early season as it's the first chance for most to meet the team for the upcoming campaign. The kickoff luncheon benefits the Chicago Fire Foundation. Details regarding tickets can be found here.
New York based Empire of Soccer published a report this morning that New York Cosmos and former Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Kyle Reynish is on his way to Chicago. Reynish was the NASL's Golden Glove winner in 2013 and spent six seasons as back up to Nick Rimando. He went unclaimed in last season's Re-entry Draft before signing with the Cosmos.
Reynish would fill the role as Sean Johnson's main support and a possible interim starter if Johnson does manage to claim a spot on the US roster heading to Brazil for the World Cup. EOS speculates that Reynish would be insurance in the event of a Euro move for Johnson, but the Fire are interested in contractually extending their starting goalkeeper past 2014. If Johnson shows well in USMNT camp he may well have some options ahead of him.
