As a part of our ongoing partnership with Arsenal Football Development, the 2023-24 Arsenal Pre-Game jersey is part of the Annual Uniform Requirement for all teams. The 2023-24 jersey will be available in the Lloyds online uniform catalog beginning with Uniform Fitting dates in June. All UFA players for the upcoming seasons, returning and new, will be required to purchase the annual Pre-Game jersey. (Please note: Arsenal changes their pre-game jersey style every year. That is why it is a required uniform item that needs to be purchased by all players annually.)
Returning players: UFA discussed last year’s jersey shortage issue with Adidas and Arsenal. To help make up for the wait in receiving the orders this past year, they have agreed to provide the pre-game jersey to UFA Academy/Select players at a reduced price this 2023-24 seasonal year. (The pre-game jersey was going to be $55; parents will only be charged $35 upon Checkout.) Please Note: Adidas is not anticipating any delays this year.
Uniform Fittings will be held as follows outside of the UFA Norcross Indoor Facility.

Please note, some uniform items are gender specific, so it is important you attend the appropriate uniform fitting session. Uniform orders will be placed and paid for (credit card only) at the fitting. Orders will be delivered to your team manager in August.
UNIFORM ORDERING PROCEDURE:
All uniform orders are placed through Lloyd's soccer. The Uniform Coordinator will send an email invitation that will allow you to create an account at myuniform.lloydssoccer.com. When you receive your invitation, you will need to sign in and place your order before the deadline listed on your invitation.
Detailed instructions to proceed to order the uniform can be found here or by clicking on "Need help?" at the Dashboard screen.
U8-U19 Academy/Select Players:
Players are required to purchase and wear the UFA uniform package through our approved vendor.
Players will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please be sure to add this in your email contacts so it does not go to spam.)
This upcoming season will be the second year of a two-year cycle. ALL players will have to order the complete uniform package in June. Once the player's uniform order has been placed, there will be NO refunds or exchanges. With that in mind, players are strongly encouraged to attend a scheduled uniform fitting.
At the Uniform Fitting
The following are REQUIRED uniform items and MUST be purchased. The player pass will be withheld until all required items have been purchased.
Home Jersey & Away Jersey
Home Shorts & Away Shorts
Home Socks & Away Socks
Backpack (Must be a UFA backpack, not just Adidas.)
Warm-up Jacket and Pants are required for U9 Pool 1, U10-U12 Premier & Red, U13-U19 ECNL, NPL, SCCL regional and P1 teams..
Official UFA Practice Shirt and Shorts, Black Socks (Adidas or no name), shin guards, cleats
Any undergarments must be the same color as the dominant color of the outer garment. All undergarments (slides pants, undershirts, etc.) which extend visibly beyond the required uniform must be as close as possible in color to the main color of the uniform part under which they are worn. For example, white long-sleeve shirts must be worn under white jerseys, and black under black. Pants/slides/tights must also match the dominant color of the shorts, white under white shorts, black under black. Shin guard straps/tape must also match the dominant color of the socks.
Additional Required Items:
Goal Keepers: If the player is a goal keeper only, never a field player, they do not have to order the field jerseys. However, they must order a UFA goal keeper kit.
All jersey numbers MUST be approved by the Uniform Coordinator. If you order a uniform and your number has not been approved and properly recorded, you run the risk of having to replace the uniform at your own expense.
Returning UFA (Academy/Select) players may keep their jersey number, as long as there is not a conflict on the team they move to.
Players New to UFA will have the opportunity to choose from available jersey numbers for their team at a Uniform Fitting ONLY. If you are unable to attend a fitting, you may choose a jersey number after the final uniform fitting has occurred. (Please do NOT contact the Uniform Coordinator about numbers. No exceptions will be made.)
Once the player's uniform order has been placed, there will be NO refunds or exchanges.
For any additional uniform related questions, please contact the Uniform Coordinator at email@example.com.
