The red-and-white hooped jersey making the rounds months ago is indeed the U.S. men's national team's new home jersey. It is the U.S. women's national team jersey, too.
For the first time, Nike has unified the kits for the United States men's and women's teams, U.S. Soccer revealed on Monday. The 2012/2013 jersey continues the use of a sash, just as the new road uniform for the men's team does.
The U.S. men's team will debut the new jerseys in its friendly against Scotland on May 26 at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Fla. The women's team will wear the new jersey for the first time a day later, when it takes on China in a friendly at PPL Park in Chester, Pa.
The American flag is the jersey's inspiration. Red and white horizontal lines are complimented by a blue collar. A pre-sale for the jerseys will begin on April 17 at ussoccer.com. The kits will be available for purchase at stores starting May 1.
