Is this the new USMNT home jersey?

USMNT-Home-Copa-America

The U.S. Men’s National Team’s latest home jersey has allegedly been leaked, and it is likely to raise some eyebrows.

On Saturday, the American Outlaws D.C. Chapter posted an image of what is believed to be the new home jersey that the USMNT will wear during this summer’s Copa America Centenario. The new U.S. Soccer crest sits on a white base, while the sleeves comprise of thin blue lines.

The revealing of the home jersey comes more than week after the new away jersey was allegedly leaked. It has been reported that the Americans will suit up in new jerseys in the upcoming World Cup qualifiers vs. Guatemala at the end of the month.

Footy Headlines also recently leaked the pre-match jersey for the Copa America tournament, and it features red and blue.

What do you think of this reported new USMNT home jersey? Like the light blue color of the sleeves? Wondering what the heck is going on with Nike’s design team?

  1. This is one of the great threads of the year. Thank you to everyone for the entertainment.

    Centennial and Waldo jerseys were the best of recent years.

  2. Right after the centennials went off the market I got a gift certificate to the US Soccer store. I figured I’d use it on the next USMNT jersey I liked.

    It’s now been over 3 years and I am still just holding a gift certificate.

  4. The away jersey is a refried abortion. This is better but more fitting for the 1920 olympic bobsled team. The fans want red. Give us red. The where’s waldo hoops jersey was fantastic.

    • “So many posts and comments about crests and uniforms – who cares?”

      Er, the many people that post and comment about crests and uniforms … ?

      Don’t you worry though SLA, it’s not required that you post or comment if you don’t care.

      I’m not interested in fashion–I dress like a color-blind alcoholic–and consider myself someone who cares more about function than form, substance than surface appeal. That said, a uniform and badge help to represent a team, and in this case, a culture and country.

      It’s okay that you don’t care about this stuff, just like it’s okay that some of us do. There are probably some people that ONLY care about uniforms and crests, and guess what? This is the perfect article for them to pop up and share their opinions because this article is about a jersey, a frickin’ t-shirt.

      What did you think it would be about when you clicked on it? Or did you expect to find a comment section full of people echoing your opinion?

      • It’s fine for people to express their views on this uniform – I was just expressing mine.

  5. Just wondering but what is everyone favorite US jerseys ever? I feel like the centennial is the only one that was pretty much widely approved of..

    • I think most of us just want something consistent which gives us an identity, even if they aren’t our favorites.

      The centennials were my favorites, though I wish we did them in three different colorways instead of one (white w/ blue trim). But I also like the sashes of 2011, and the bars of 2012, even the rocket-pops would be good, though I’d like to see the colors darker, and striped socks.

      I’m not a big fan of the most recent gradients, and most of the kits from 1980-2010 don’t have much of an appeal to me.

    • 1990 kits were maybe a bit subdued, but good looking. The 1996 us olympic uniforms were stylish and simple. Those are my votes.

    • Besides the centennial and the waldo (didn’t like at first-now a favorite) the ’06 jerseys (all 3) were pretty good. Anytime they use Navy+White or White+Red the results are good enough. The least they could do is stick to a color scheme. The only other colored ones i liked where the slate gray back in 08-09

  6. I like how the collar hints at the bottom of the crest, and the raised red line around the collar, and down the side of the torso. I still think the crest looks good, just a little too tall and narrow. It’s also nice that they didn’t change the proper colors on the crest and Nike symbol to better match the colors that the sleeves give off, which is BABY BLUE!

    Okay, I know the sleeves are actually two striped colors, but they’re so thinly cut it comes off looking baby blue at a glance or from distance.

    I don’t know how I feel about a baseball shirt as a soccer jersey. A baseball shirt is distinctly American, but also distinctly baseball. I like that the sleeves are at least the same color(s).

    I’m okay with the two-tone sleeves, I just wish they better projected the darker blue color.

    My verdict: I’d want to buy this jersey if I could attend a Copa America match.

  7. This is simply a baseball undershirt with the US Olympic ski team logo slapped on. I take it that the USSF just doesn’t have any sense of design and fashion. I cannot see how someone in charge of this would give Nike the approval for the home and away jerseys. We as the fans need to rise up and demand better. Everyone who does not like what they are seeing I say make your voice heard by emailing the USSF and Nike.

  8. it looks like a knock off Jerseys hanging at the corner store. I think I’ll just hang on to the ones before this……

  9. Oh. My. F*****g. God.

    The black away shirt is bad enough, now this garbage? I’m a Crew fan, I know a bad jersey when I see one (too soon).
