National team away uniform unveiled
[U.S. SOCCER] U.S. Soccer unveiled the new Nike away uniform for men's and women's national teams, a striking red, white and blue design that will first be worn by
the men Wednesday night against Mexico.
The jersey has a modern crew-neck collar and consists of three bands representing the colors of the American flag. The base color of the jersey and
the cuff of the sleeves feature a prominent red. The upper torso and top sleeves include a bold blue tone, and a white chest band extends over the middle of both sleeves.
The back of the
jersey features a unique and specially designed font for the names and numbers, which is modern and angular. Each number on the back of the jersey also houses a small U.S. Soccer crest at the bottom.
Additionally, there is a pennant tab inside the back of the neck featuring 13 red and white stripes to represent the original 13 colonies.
"I really like the new, patriotic colorway," said U.S. men's national team
captain Clint Dempsey in a statement. "It's a distinctive design that looks great on the pitch. They will serve us well as we head into a competitive group."
