We the People of Detroit The combination of away top and home shorts was nicknamed the "Kit-Man Moy" combo and was first worn because of a clash with visiting side Toledo Villa FC. It was worn a few times afterwards as well, even without a clash.

None None The combination of home top with away shorts was spotted at a mid-season friendly played behind closed doors against Pittsburgh Riverhounds. The COVID pandemic meant that there was no charity match or kit.
