Late on Valentine’s Day, U.S. Soccer released a new red National Team jersey.
The new jersey is all-red design, in a similar style to 2016’s National Team jerseys. An altered, all-red crest features on both the jersey and shorts, which also have a single black stripe down the length of the uniform with the sleeves a darker shade of red.
The new jerseys will debut at the 2017 SheBelieves Cup that is set for March 1st to March 7th, while the U.S. Men’s National Team will make their first appearance in the new jersey on March 24th in World Cup Qualifying against Honduras.
The jersey has been the source of some controversy, with some praising the bold coloring that is a departure from the sometimes bland 2016 editions, but many feel that the jersey is too similar to Nike’s other efforts with England, Portugal, and others.
Do you like the bold new color? Is it too similar to 2016’s jerseys? How do you feel about the similarity to other jerseys around the world?
