The new USA home kit combines heritage and patriotism in a bold new design that both the Men's and Women’s teams will debut on the pitch this summer. The jersey utilizes the colors of the American flag with a blue crew neck collar and a body featuring red and white stripes.
The shirt also features a tonal sash to echo the same design on the shirts worn by the US Men’s National Team when they famously defeated England in the 1950 Finals in Brazil.

Both kits are visually identical but the women’s kit is designed specifically for the female athlete to enhance range of motion creating a uniquely feminine silhouette. The American Stars and Stripes flag, affectionately known as ‘Old Glory,’ is placed inside the back of the neck of both versions to inspire pride.
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.
In line with Nike’s commitment combining athletic performance with lower environmental impact, each kit is made using an average of 13 recycled plastic bottles. The new kit's shorts are made with 100% Dri-FIT recycled polyester and the shirt with a minimum 96% Dri-FIT recycled polyester. Overall the new kit is 23% lighter and 20% stronger than Nike’s previous kits.
Nike Dri-FIT is proprietary technology that works to wick away moisture helping to regulate player’s temperature during a match. The shirts also feature laser-cut ventilation holes to promote localized cooling where it matters most.
