The MLS will reuse old equipment to help make new shirts

AKQA Bloom & (re)boot have joined together with Inter Miami to up-cycle used sportswear to help create new shirts for the club.

The partnership is the first of its kind in the MLS as they embark on a mission to address the issue of waste in sports. In the MLS alone, 13,000 pairs of boots and 5,000 balls are used per season, highlighting the need for change in order to become more sustainable.

So far, Inter Miami have been able to create new uniforms for the club’s training academy while they will also become the first side in the world to launch a mascot, made entirely of repurposed club materials, in 2024.

Founder and owner of (re)boot, Gabriella Mas, said: “I’m excited to introduce (re)boot to the world. Combining the powerful forces of football and fashion, we exist to ensure that no piece of sports equipment goes to waste. (re)boot is a restart, and together we can design a healthier planet and a circular future for all sports.”

AKQA Bloom Founders and Executive Creative Directors, Jean Zamprogno and Fernando Pellizzaro, added: “This momentous partnership between Inter Miami CF, (re)boot, and AKQA Bloom is poised to redefine the future of sustainability in sports. By upcycling sportswear and inspiring change through innovative initiatives, we are paving the way for a legacy built on environmental responsibility and conscious consumerism.”
