New U.S. national team uniforms will be worn for first time in March

U.S. Soccer unveiled the new Nike home and away kits that will be worn by its national teams starting in 2020.

The U.S. women will debut the new, dark kit -- incorporating a fourth star above the crest, symbolizing the four World Cup championships -- on March 5 when they face England in the first match of the SheBelieves Cup at Orlando's Exploria Stadium.



The U.S. men will wear their new kits during the European friendlies at the Netherlands on March 26 in Eindhoven and four days later against Wales in Cardiff.

    The national team jerseys that are well-known are generally the ones that have had the same design and colors throughout the years. Argentina's light blue-and-white vertical stripes, Brazil's yellow jerseys, Italy's and France's blue. I liked the previous US National Team jerseys more than this one. Go with an Apollo Creed-like design, red, white and blue with stars and stripes, keep it and only change it slightly every year and our uniformas would eventually become as memorable as the other countries I mentioned. It will not if we change layouts and colors every year.

    Worse yet, other countries have red, white and blue flags.

    Use our "red, white, and blue" brand or lose it to another country.

    I'm 1

    ...I'll try that again...
    I am 100% with you, Randy!  The sooner our high school, college and pro sports teams lose their love affair with black and grey colors (they call one shade of grey "anthracite"... that makes it more fashionable), the better. The national teams should play in our country's national colors. Let's show our pride for all to see; schools play in their school colors, etc, etc. one glance at your screen and you'll know which is your team! Why hide behind all those grey and black colors?

    I agree with both Randy and Ginger.  The kits should reflect our national colors and be somewhat consistent design from year to year so that one knows at first glance it is the USA.  The Bomb Pop jerseys were better than these because they were at least our colors.

    I see nothing remotely depicting the colors of our beautiful flag. I see no national pride in the design. Nike sponsors Brazil and yet there colors always stays the same. Our national team jerseys should always contain the colors red, white and blue and also stars representing our states. I see none of that. In my opinion, UGLY!

    Ugly!

    Agree totally! This uniform sucks. What's the blue supposed to represent? Looks like someone spilled grape juice on the jersey. Get a red, white and blue style that's well--liked and only change it minimally. They might find they actually sell more that way.

    Agree... Makes you wonder, who's running the show.

    When, if ever, will our national team jerseys become truly the national team jerseys, recognizable around the world through the years as worn by United States team players. 

    Those worn in the 1994 World Cup are still the best we've ever had amidst the ever changing quest to generate more dollars by repeatedly selling a different style.

    The latest version doesn't even appear to have a different home and away coloring.

    AGREE 100% with all the above !! Been saying that for years. But, we all know it's all about the $$$$$$$ !!!Come up with a good kit (Nike makes/designs horrible soccer/football kits) and stick with it.

    I agree with Randy, Ginger, and Jon.  How can we expect other countries to respect us if we don't even wear our own colors?  Wearing our countries colors is one of the greatest opportunities an athlete can have.  Playing for your country is a great honor and a chance to show how proud you are and not many get that chance.  Red, white and blue always and forever!

    That is one ugly jersey!  Only way to influence US Soccer and Nike is not to buy it.

  15. Bob Ashpole, February 6, 2020 at 4:52 p.m.

    I dislike those new uniforms a lot. They imply to me that someone is trying to make the players look like soldiers. Reminds me of the Nazi black uniforms that echoed the black SS uniforms.

    I don't want our players to look like an invading army. What was USSF thinking?

  16. Tom G, February 6, 2020 at 9:04 p.m.

    Ugly and not representative us or US.

    Liberia was founded by freed American slaves in 1847, their flag is almost a copy of ours and their capital of Monrovia is named after President James Monroe. So I looked up their uniforms and, at least as of last year, they were wearing red and white horizontal stripes on their jersey, blue shorts and red socks. That uniform is more reflective of our beautiful American flag than the ugly uniforms above. http://apanews.net/en/pays/liberia-liberia/news/liberia-expresses-disappointment-over-attack-on-lone-star-in-freetown

    White shirt with red sash shoulder to waist front and back with blue shorts and white socks.  God bless America.

    The new one is just ugly. It looks like a warm up shirt.

    What is tying it to the country other that the badge?

    I hope they get something that actually has red, white and blue in it soon.
