Nike and US Soccer Officially Announce New 2014 Home Kit

The worst-kept secret in US Soccer history is finally official.

Earlier today, US Soccer and Nike finally unveiled the new US Men’s and Women’s National Team home kit for 2014.

The photos we released last week, ended up being correct, and the bland white polo-like jersey will be the jersey players like Landon Donovan, Jozy Altidore, and Clint Dempsey will wear in Brazil in just 100 days.

The jersey incorporates a classic white with gray horizontal pinstripes across the body and sleeves. The jersey features the white polo shirt collar with red trim. Inside the back of the neck is a blue pennant tab with the 13 stars from the original American flag.

“It’s always an honor to wear the colors of your country, and this summer we will be hard to miss in an all-white look,” said U.S. Men’s National team captain Clint Dempsey in a statement. “We will be traveling all over Brazil, and playing in a lot of different conditions, so the innovative Nike designs will serve us well.”

On the back, the top features a specially designed font for the USA names and numbers – a modern and angular style that is influenced by other U.S. sports teams. The jersey numbers also include a small U.S. Soccer crest at the bottom.

The redesigned Nike Pro baselayer shorts are white with a red stripe on each side. The fit is slim and tailored to the body, with a cut specifically designed to aid movement and comfort. The center back of the shorts feature Nike’s signature laser vents to aid in cooling and moisture management.

Below are a few photos of the new kit:
