Originally established in 1913 as the United States of America Foot Ball Association, the U.S. Soccer Federation has grown infinitely over the past century as soccer has continued to increase in popularity across the country. To mark 100 years of the program, Nike has introduced the brand new Centennial Kit for both the men’s and women’s national teams. Inspired by the uniforms worn by the Americans in their first-ever match – a 3-2 victory over Sweden in Stockholm – the kit features a predominately white design with obsidian appearing at both the v-neck collar and sleeves. Special centennial details include stars and stripes appearances at the hem while the inner neck also pays homage to the past 100 years. The standout detail, however, is the uniform’s crest. Enlarged and adapted from the original kit, the crest has been moved over the heart and features 13 stars alongside 13 stripes – an obvious nod to the original 13 colonies. Utilizing Dri-FIT technology, constructed from a minimum of 96% polyester from recycled plastic bottles and set to be worn on-field alongside matching socks and shorts, the jersey is both lighter and stronger than previous designs and is now available online for $150 USD.
