Out with the old, in with the new. The United States men’s team may not be heading to the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, but they are looking towards the future, and the new away kit is representative of that.

The United States women’s national team, on the other hand, will be at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, and they’ve also got new jerseys to show. In fact, the new jersey is being debuted at tonight’s game in Austin, Texas where the US women’s team is taking on Nigeria.

The US men’s team shared the new jersey with the world on their social media accounts with stars such as Christian Pulisic, Weston McKennie, Sergiño Dest. This jersey will be used as an alternate jersey in the Gold Cup matches.

What’s the inspiration for the jersey?

Nike said the jersey is inspired by a waving flag and has been sustainably made, using 75% recycled polyester.

Both the men and women’s team have been featured in the news and on social media lately as the women are currently playing in the summer series while preparing for the 2021 Tokyo Olympics. The men have a young, but promising team, which was demonstrated recently when they won the CONCACAF Nations League final against Mexico.

Both the US men’s and women’s national teams have also worn a special jersey this month for pride month in an effort to promote diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging. US soccer is wearing a multi-colored jersey during the friendly matches happening throughout June as part of the You Can Play Project.
