NHL Jerseys re-invented as soccer kits


There is no doubting the fact that the popularity of soccer is growing in North America. Matt Pratt, a self-taught graphic designer from Toronto has designed home and away jerseys for all 30 NHL teams. “There is a lot of cross-over between hockey and soccer fans.”


Feeling hockey jerseys translated well to soccer kits, Pratt spent his spare time working away on his home computer to create the designs. The jerseys can be found on his website:

Whether you like the jerseys or not, it’s always a good idea to branch into different markets, let alone different sports. I think it’s a great idea marketing wise for hockey and for soccer. The popularity of soccer is on the rise in North America so why not try this avenue? My personal favorite are the Montreal Canadians. However, there are tons of great looking jerseys.

Nice work Matt!

The idea for Goalden is to help other soccer players of all ages improve the many different aspects of their game. We began coaching youth teams and watching youth soccer all over Ontario. We watched semi-professional and professional teams and noticed how far the game still has to develop here. From that, we decided we want to help others obtain the best information as early as possible in their soccer careers. We want to educate readers about the game of soccer and the fine details that are often overlooked by coaches in North America.
