After a leak had been circulating through the internet for quite some time, U.S. Soccer unveiled its new uniforms for 2016 on Thursday. This announcement follows the reveal of a new crest for the federation, which was made on Feb. 29.
The uniforms will be worn this summer in the team’s World Cup qualifiers, the Copa America Centenario and the 2016 Olympics. Like the uniforms that were introduced for the 2014 World Cup, both the U.S. men’s and women’s teams will play in the new jerseys.
While most U.S. shirts in the past have followed very different designs between the home and away kits, the federation has chosen to go with a similar approach for each this time around. The home is white with blue sleeves and the away shirt is black with one blue sleeve and one red.
The men’s team will debut the new kits March 25 in a World Cup qualifier against Guatemala. The women’s team will debut them in a friendly against Colombia on April 6.
Here are more photos of the new jerseys:
