Wow. Where did you read that? That sucks. Not like they lowered the prices on jerseys even a little bit to accommodate. And as lion said, the pics on MLS store show the patch on the sleeve.
Friend purchased the new kit at the event last week at Pele Soccer, said none of the kits have the patch on, have to be purchased separately. Picture was probably a mistake by MLS or maybe they are charging more for kits with the patch already on? Something may have gotten lost in translation? I can't say why they have the patch.
Next question would be if the site has a "patch" add-on option similar to adding a name/number.
Since it's a "new" feature I wouldn't be surprised to see some changes the next few weeks to the jersey page layout/imagery used. MLS shop developers may not be up-to-date as they may just be focused on all the new jerseys on the site. I just looked on the MLS Shop site, there aren't even customization options yet, so I can't say. Even our rollover sky blue home kit doesn't have customization/player options available on the site. Probably working through logistics now in regard to patch add-ons and name/numbering.

While they’re at it, they might as well make the Jersey Sponsor an add-on & customizable feature so that we can elect not to have Etihad tarnish the jersey.

hopefully that won't be tarnishing it for much longer, if rumors be true....

I ordered the authentic kit from adidas. On their website, the image of the kit doesn't show league patches on the arm(s). On the MLSsoccer.com website, the image of the kit shows a league patch on one of the sleeves.

If I get the kit from adidas and it doesn't have the league patches I'm going to be quite upset. It should be a singular product across retailers, especially since adidas makes the kits for MLS.
If your shirt doesn’t have the patch, ask to speak to the manager.

Wow that really sucks if true. They went from having the super quality plastic badge on Authentics, to a single, crappy fabric patch, to no patch at all unless purchased. Then they raised the authentic price by $15! They are approaching Nike authentic prices (they were $165 blank for a while)

As I said earlier in the thread, when I bought mine at the Kit Launch event at Pele, neither the replica nor authentic had the sleeve patches. I inadvertently didn't get them on my authentic (I think I assumed they would be added with I got player name/number customization) but I wouldn't be surprised if they cost extra on top of that like Schwallacus Schwallacus mentioned for PL teams.

I've not been to that Pele shop in Times Square before (and wasn't clear as to whether it was just a pop-up thing or if they regularly sell stuff there), but they had the new MLS 25 names and numbers available, and I saw the sleeve patches there even though I ultimately wound up without any on my kit

they're always there. not just a popup shop.

I stand corrected! We’ll see how long Fanatics can stand however much they must be losing.
That is some kind of shitty retail space for what they must be paying.
I'm almost expecting Upper90 to be the first place to have all of these "add-ons".
