Richmond Ivy Soccer Club is thrilled to unveil their inaugural season kits, with CarMax, the nation’s largest retailer of used vehicles, as the front-of-jersey sponsor and Sabra, America’s No. 1 most loved hummus, as the jersey sleeve partner. The Made of Many Kit and the Climbing Ever Higher Kit will serve as the club’s first jerseys, home and away respectively. Both kits feature fully customizable designs by Alex Kocher, courtesy of hummel Pro North America.

CarMax is committed to elevating and increasing the visibility of women’s sports and is a proud partner of the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL), Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) and several women’s professional sports teams nationwide. CarMax’s partnership with the Richmond Ivy builds on the company’s support of Richmond-area teams, including the Kickers, Flying Squirrels, University of Richmond Basketball and Women’s Athletics, and VCU Basketball.

“It’s incredibly exciting to see the return of pre-professional women’s soccer to Richmond,” said Sarah Lane, SVP, Chief Marketing Officer at CarMax. “We’re proud to further our commitment to raising the visibility of women’s sports and we are thrilled to extend that support in our hometown of Richmond. We look forward to supporting the Ivy during their inaugural season alongside our associates this year. We hope the Richmond community embraces the club and joins us at a game this summer.”

With the shadow of ivy vines climbing up the body of the jersey, the Made of Many kit embodies the looming presence of our squad as players and fans of women’s soccer in Richmond enter into the W League’s pre-professional space. Behind the leadership of Sporting Director Madeline McCracken and Head Coach Kimmy Cummings, we are a team that is #madeofmany. Every leaf on the jersey reminds us of every athlete, fan, and supporter — in the Richmond region and beyond — that helped to bring our team to life. As the Ivy enter into the 2024 season, they do so with the whole of Richmond behind them.

Richmond Ivy Jersey Release 2024

The Climbing Ever Higher kit will serve as the secondary jersey for Richmond Ivy. With interlocking vines climbing up the middle of the jersey over a column of brick orange, the jersey represents Richmond Ivy’s aspirations as a team and a club both in this season and beyond. We are grounded by the historic brick buildings around us but, as Ivy, we intend to grow beyond them; to write our own history as the club embarks on its inaugural season.

The Made of Many Kit will serve as Richmond Ivy’s primary jersey during the 2024 inaugural season with the jersey making its debut when the Ivy open their regular-season play at City Stadium on May 11, 2024 against the Virginia Marauders.

About Richmond Ivy SC

Announced on July 15, 2023, Richmond Ivy SC is one of the latest USL W League expansion sides preparing to kick off its inaugural season in 2024. 22 Holdings, LLC, the ownership group that runs the Richmond Kickers, founded the W League side to create a new level of competition for women’s soccer in the region.

This Ivy competing in 2024 marks the first time Richmond has fielded a pre-professional women’s team since the Richmond Kickers Destiny that operated from 2005 to 2009. As players did while playing for Destiny, W League RVA players will have a platform to develop their talents as players and serve as role models to lead the growth of women’s soccer in our wider Richmond community.
