U.S. Soccer has taken a new approach with the home soccer jersey unveiled today. The new U.S. Soccer replica soccer jersey will be worn by both the men’s national team and the women’s national soccer team and has a classic look.
The U.S. Men and Women will debut the latest Nike jersey when they play their next domestic matches in late May.
The American flag is utilized as the jersey's inspiration, with a shirt that features horizontal red and white stripes and a blue crew neck collar. There is also a subtle tonal sash echoing the same design on the jerseys worn by the U.S. Men's National Team when it famously defeated England in the 1950 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
Both kits are visually identical, but the women's kit is designed specifically for the female athlete to enhance range of motion.
The U.S. Men will debut the new kit when they face Scotland on May 26 at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Fla. The U.S. Women will sport the new look for the first time against China on May 27 at PPL Park in Chester, Pa.
The fabric of the new home kits is approximately 23 percent lighter and 20 percent stronger than Nike's previous models. Made with Dri-FIT technology, the kits help regulate players' temperatures on the pitch. The shirts feature laser-cut ventilation holes to promote localized cooling where it matters most.
Environmentally, each kit is made using an average of 13 recycled plastic bottles. The new kit's shorts are made with 100 percent Dri-FIT recycled polyester and the shirt with a minimum 96 percent recycled polyester.
The base layer apparel includes Nike Pro Combat Hyperstrong compression slider shorts that feature a padded waist and thigh protection in the most critical areas to provide protection during the rigors of the game. Mesh fabric is placed in heat zones for breathability.
The new home shorts are blue, while the socks - now with improved cushioning for greater comfort, movement and protection - are white with a blue band at the top.
