ORLANDO, Fla. (Oct. 21, 2023) — On Oct. 2, 2023, with her start in the Pride’s 1-0 win at Angel City FC, Marta became the first Orlando Pride player to play 100 games for the Club. To celebrate the history-making milestone, the Club presented Marta with a one-of-one kit this week, a hand-stitched jersey that combines all seven tops that the Brazilian legend has worn on the field over her NWSL career.

The Pride commissioned Amsterdam-based designer Floor Wesseling, who carefully patterned the seven designs to create a one-of-a-kind art piece through his company, Blood In Blood Out. The piece features the Pride’s 2017 home kit, which Marta wore when she made her debut for Orlando; the 2018-19 away kit; the 2019-20 Reflection Kit; the 2020-21 White Plume Kit; the 2021-22 Ad Astra Kit; the 2022-23 Luna Kit and the 2023 Highway Woman Kit.

Currently, Marta not only holds the all-time appearance record for the Pride (102) but also the record for most regular season starts (84), as well as goals (31) and assists (18) across all competitions.
