The USWNT World Cup jerseys were unveiled today. The white home jersey and red away jersey will be worn in France this summer.
The simplicity of the home shirt is inspired by the 1999 jerseys Mia Hamm and co wore when they lifted the trophy on US soil. The swoosh, in particular, is identical on both shirts and it has a classic design. What’s very different is the cut and fit of these jerseys. Nike makes both a men’s and women’s version of this jersey cut specifically for those body types.
While the classic design of the home jersey is the story here, there are plenty of subtle design features. The back of the jersey has the names of the 50 states written in small light grey lettering along with the words “One Nation One Team”. It’s the type of detail you won’t notice until you get up close. What’s not so subtle is the 3 stars down the left leg of the home shorts. Players don’t need to look hard to understand what the standard is for the USWNT this summer.
The away jersey is a classic American red with some additional subtle design features. Sublimated into the fabric is a stars and stripes pattern that has a vintage Americana feel to it. It’s the kind of jersey that is just as much at home at a 4th of July bbq or a world cup match. On the inside of the jersey next to the label are the words “One Nation. One Team.” It is the same mantra found on previous jerseys and it is still a rallying cry.
The USWNT World Cup jerseys will no doubt see some amazing moments this summer. The official on-sale date for them is May 9th, but keep your eyes here for further updates.
