Players and coaches have come and gone through U.S. Soccer, but there’s been one constant since 1995.
Nike, the team’s official uniform provider, announced today that it has signed a new contract with U.S. Soccer to continue that partnership through 2022. Nike will continue to design both the U.S. Men’s and Women’s National Team jerseys for the next nine years.
“Nike is extremely proud to continue our longstanding partnership with U.S. Soccer,” Nike brand president Trevor Edwards said in a statement. “The partnership reinforces Nike’s leadership in soccer, as we continue to deliver game-changing innovations on the pitch and share the same vision to further grow the sport as a whole in the U.S.”
Nike, an official partner of U.S. Soccer since 1995, has designed the team’s uniforms for for the last four men’s and women’s World Cups and other international competitions. The USMNT debuted their latest jersey, the white uniform featuring a retro crest in honor of U.S. Soccer’s centennial, last March ahead of World Cup qualifying matches against Costa Rica and Mexico.
What do you think of this news? Glad to see U.S. Soccer continue with Nike? Would you rather see them in Adidas uniforms? Think it makes a difference?
