First-year NM United team unveils its look

Defender Justin Schmidt poses in his New Mexico United game jersey, which was revealed Thursday.

New Mexico United’s first-year professional soccer team unveiled its home jerseys on Thursday, leaving no mystery as to its burgeoning partnership.

Meow Wolf, the interactive art collective in Santa Fe, has signed up with United on this maiden voyage.

United owner Peter Trevisani’s ties to Meow Wolf are extensive. He was an early investor and a “strategic adviser” before focusing on United, said a team spokesperson. It’s also part of his Twitter bio.

“The front of the jersey sponsor was obvious,” Trevisani said in a YouTube video produced to briefly explain the alliance.

“… If we’re going to be a team that brings this state together the way it’s never been brought together before, then we have to blend art and sport.”

The Adidas-manufactured jersey, now on sale on the team website (newmexicoutd.com), is black with yellow trim and piping. “Meow Wolf,” in colorful big block letters, gets much bigger play even than the Adidas and United patches. The black shorts and socks also will be accented with yellow trim.

United will call Isotopes Park its home for the 2019 United Soccer League (USL) season. The home and season opener is March 9 vs. Fresno.

N.M. RUNNERS: The Major Arena Soccer League 2 team based in Rio Rancho returns to home action Sunday with a 3 p.m. start at the Santa Ana Star Center against the Colorado Rumble. The Runners fell to 1-5 on the season Friday with a 14-4 loss in El Paso to the Juarez Cuervos. Jaime Rodriguez led the Runners with two goals.
