The USA will sit out the 2018 World Cup and use it as a turning point for a new chapter of international football with fresh-faced and fearless youth. A clean slate. Starting with two new home and away shirts for both the men's and women's sides.

The memories attached to the kit that was worn in the unsuccessful qualifying campaign are banished as Nike and the USMNT focus strongly on the future. The home and away jerseys will see both the women’s and men’s teams through initial qualifying stages for the next major international tournaments.


The stripes on the home kit shift from red to blue. The diagonal flow of the blue forms an abstract sash, a subtle ode to a regular design element in U.S. kits through the ages. This modern interpretation of the American Flag represents speed.

The away kit takes on a deep blue design as a nod to America's history of space travel, and features a sleek, negative shaping of the stripes. Both jerseys are stamped with a stylized version of the American eagle, complete with 13 stars representing the original 13 colonies, while a custom USA icon inspired by NASA Space Mission badges appears on the 2018 USA away shirt.


Another show of patriotism is found in the custom name and number set for the federation. The typography is inspired by muscle car emblems and features crisp racing stripes and an inset star pattern.


The 2018 United States Soccer Federation collection debuts on the men’s team on March 27 against Paraguay, and on the women’s team on April 5 against Mexico.
