Aztec Soccer Club is proud to partner with PUMA, one of the world’s leading sports brands, as its official equipment and apparel provider.
PUMA's values of being brave, confident, determined and joyful fit perfectly with those of Aztec: commitment, passion, respect, community, positivity, and resilience. The two companies share a vision and passion for giving our players the best technical products and transforming and empowering ourselves and our community through the power of sport.
As part its partnership, Aztec and PUMA have made a commitment to deliver on the following to our valued Aztec families.
Aztec is also proud to have generous sponsors that support our club and players. Yokohama Tires will be displayed on the front of the home and away jersey, while the Ira Motor Groups mark will adorn the back of our jerseys.
See below for details on our uniform ordering policies and process.
Aztec has worked with PUMA to reduce the cost of the required kit for the 2020-21 season. The required uniform kit items include the following: Home Red Jersey (1), Away Black/Grey Jersey (1), Black Shorts (1), Yellow Training Jersey (1), Black Socks (1), and Training Jacket (1).
Players have the option to purchase additional items such as a team bag, training pants, etc. but they are not required. You will note that new for this season, Aztec will only require black socks. White socks are no longer part of the official uniform kit. .
Special note for Goalkeepers: If you exclusively play goalkeeper you will receive a link for the goalkeeper only kit. If you split time between goalkeeper and the field you will need to purchase the field player kit and add 1 goalkeeper jersey to the required order.
Why A New Uniform Kit?: The Aztec uniform kit - like all club programs - runs on a two-year cycle and are valid from fall 2020 through spring 2022 (the 2020-21 season and the 2021-22 season). Given these challenging times, we did everything that we could to explore options for our families which included staying with Nike and utilizing the kits from the past two years.
Unfortunately, the kits that we have been using for the past two years are no longer available for purchase. As a result, all new players or players needing replacement items would have had to purchase different kits which would be a direct violation of league rules on uniforms. All players in a club are required to have the exact same uniforms. Please know that we worked extremely hard with PUMA to reduce the cost of the kit to be under $200. We also reduced the number of required items in the kit.
Players and families are able - throughout the year - to purchase a wide assortment of spirit and fan gear through the Aztec Store at Soccer.com. Periodically throughout the year, Soccer.com will offer special discounts on items.
A: Soccer.com is the official uniform supplier and PUMA is the official apparel and equipment partner of Aztec Soccer Club. For the 2020-21 season, Aztec is beginning a new 2-year uniform cycle for its home and away uniforms and training apparel.
Q: I'm a returning player who participated on an Aztec team during the 2019-20, will I keep the same number?
A: Returning players will most likely be assigned the same number, but there will be cases where uniform numbers will change when the club begins a new two-year uniform cycle. As such, we ask that you do not order your uniform packages until you have been assigned a jersey number.
Q: What uniform pieces do I have to order?
A: Due to the COVID-19 crisis and the financial strain that it has imposed on all families, Aztec has worked with PUMA to reduce the size and cost of the required kit.
For the 2020-21 season, Aztec players will be required to purchase the following items: home/away kits (jersey/shorts/socks), training jersey, and warm-up jacket.
Optional items include warmup pants, Aztec logo soccer ball, and bag.
Q. What happens if I don't receive an email from Soccer.com or I lose the original email?
A. If you did not receive an email or can’t find it, please check your Junk and SPAM folders. The sender of the email would be "firstname.lastname@example.org”.
You can also access your player’s kit directly now or anytime in the future by following these steps. This process will be important in the future should you need to order any items now and into the season.

A: The Aztec uniform kit runs on a two-year cycle and are valid from fall 2020 through spring 2022 (the 2020-21 season and the 2021-22 season). The club alternates the life cycle of the game kits every two years to help spread out the costs related to uniform purchases for the families.
Q: When do I need to order my uniforms?
A: Junior Team and Junior Academy players will need to order their uniform kits in July in order to have the uniforms arrive in time for the start of the fall season. Due to the customization of each uniform and the national demand for uniforms during this time of year, it typically takes Soccer.com five to six weeks to produce and deliver uniforms to players.
High-school aged senior players will not be asked to purchase uniform kits until November. Senior players will be notified when they can order their kits through Soccer.com.
Q: What if I lose my uniform or need more items during the season?
A: The Aztec Store at Soccer.com does not close. Players are able to access the Aztec Store at anytime during the season to purchase any additional or replacement items.
We are excited to announce that Aztec Soccer Club and PUMA are coming together - as part of our new partnership - to sponsor a FALL EQUIPMENT DRIVE to support our friends at Beyond Soccer, a non-profit sports-based youth development organization located in Lawrence.
By working together, we have an important opportunity to collect and redistribute our soccer equipment to children in underserved communities who love the sport but don’t have the resources to play.
HOW IT WORKS
The past few months have been difficult on us all, especially those most in need. As you begin to clean out your closet in preparation for the fall season, we simply ask our families to consider saving and donating your used but still usable soccer equipment. Aztec will collect all donations in early September when fall training begins. D
etails on the collection of items will be sent out in August, but for now we ask that you put aside your donated equipment so that we can soon collect and deliver to those most in need.
Your used equipment donations will support the Beyond Soccer which works with players between the ages of 6 to 15 and seeks to provide these at-risk youth with a positive sports experience in an effort to enrich and improve their lives. Even the most basic items that we take for granted, such as cleats and soccer balls, are well beyond the reach of most families. Your donation allows these children to play organized soccer in a supportive environment and to experience all of the positive benefits of a team sport. Your generosity will have a direct and powerful impact on the lives of these children.
Standing by its core value of #Community, Aztec will work with its senior players to coordinate this effort. Our senior players will be responsible for helping to collect and distribute equipment to Beyond Soccer.
Our partner PUMA has stepped forward to contribute the following to our effort:
- Extend a 25% Discount on PUMA Footwear for all Aztec families who will need to purchase new soccer shoes for the fall
- Provide meaningful and direct equipment donations to be delivered to Beyond Soccer
WHAT WE NEED?
Here is a list of the donations that we are seeking.
We will also be collecting old Nike jerseys and apparel and donating those items to underserved communities.
