Today, US Soccer revealed the Home jersey it will use for the World Cup this summer in Brazil. It’s a very simple yet distinguished jersey. Combining top performance innovation and a classic and bold design, the new jersey incorporates a classic white with gray horizontal pinstripes across the body and sleeves. The jersey features a classic white polo shirt collar with red trim. Inside the back of the neck is a blue pennant tab with the 13 stars from the original American flag.
On the back, the top features a specially designed font for the USA names and numbers – a modern and angular style that is influenced by other U.S. sports teams. The jersey numbers also include a small U.S. Soccer crest at the bottom. The redesigned Nike Pro baselayer shorts are white with a red stripe on each side. The fit is slim and tailored to the body, with a cut specifically designed to aid movement and comfort. The center back of the shorts feature Nike’s signature laser vents to aid in cooling and moisture management.
The new classic Nike Elite Match Fit socks are also white with strategically cushioned zones to provide comfort and protection. Flex grooves were added to the ankle and the top of the foot. The shirt, shorts and socks all feature fabric made from recycled plastic bottles – 100 percent recycled polyester in the shorts, 96 percent recycled polyester in the shirt and 78 percent in the socks. The new U.S. Men’s National Team kits will be available worldwide online starting Wednesday, March 5. The USA kit is currently available in Nike stores and on nike.com for pre-order.
Rumor is, the above jersey will be the Away jersey for the World Cup. It has not been made official yet. We should find out soon.
