2016 USA National Team Jerseys Unveiled

001

The new 2016 USA Nike Vapor Kit with Aeroswift Technology for both the U.S. Men and Women’s National Teams was unveiled today in New York City. The new jerseys will be on display in this summer’s major competitions as the MNT hosts Copa America Centenario and the WNT defends its gold during the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

To pay tribute to the nation both inside and out, the jerseys are adorned with several patriotic flares throughout the material. The players will wear their hearts (and country) on their sleeve with “1 Nation” and “1 Team” exposed on the outside cuffs, while the inside displays a circular design with “We Can,” “We Will,” “We Are,” “1 Nation” and “1 Team” surrounding “USA” in the middle.

2016 USA Home Kit
The new home jersey displays U.S. Soccer’s new crest on a traditional white body with blue sleeves. A red stripe runs the length of the shirt and shorts, revealing flashes of white.

2016 USA Away Kit
The away jersey will feature a black body, complemented with a blue sleeve on the right and a red sleeve on the left. Similar to the home kits, a black stripe runs down the side of the shirt and shorts, showing off flashes of blue on the left side and red on the right side.

Both kits will introduce a new sock system that includes NikeGRIP socks paired with new sleeves that further protect ankles and other high-risk areas on the lower leg.

Christen Press is a woman very, very familiar with L.A.—she was born in the City of Angels, after all. While the US Women’s World Cup Champion and Olympic probable was born and raised in Palos Verdes, she’s constantly traveling for the game she loves, so calls the world at large her home. As one of the youngest players on the US Women’s National Soccer roster, Christen earned the respect of her teammates in the opening game of the World Cup when she scored a goal, leading her team to a victory over Australia and advancing them in the tournament. Throughout the rest of the tournament, Christen remained a crucial contributor and a leader on and off the field. Even with the USWNT recent “Victory Tour” around the country, Christen has consistently been scoring goals and even had a hat-trick. When the Stanford-educated athlete isn’t on the field, you can find her blogging, meditating, spending time with family or playing with her two rescue dogs. Here, this Olympic hopeful shares her haute secrets to Los Angeles.
