UPDATED: US Men’s National Team Home Shirt for 2012-2014: Leaked Photo

UPDATED: The US men’s national team home shirt for 2012-14 will be red and white according to a leaked photo on the Internet.

Designed by Nike, the shirt features red and white hoops with a black rounded-collar and a US flag on the inside of the shirt. While the red and white stripes are very patriotic, it’s another example of a shirt design by Nike which is overdone. While Umbro continues to produce shirt designs with a ‘less is more’ approach, Nike prefers more outlandish designs. A perfect example of this is Manchester United’s home shirt for the 2012-13 season.

While the above photograph doesn’t shown what the entire shirt looks like, I’m not a big fan of it. The shirt design looks like a cross between FC Dallas and Doncaster Rovers. For a country the size and importance of the United States, I would have preferred to see a classier shirt design rather than something that looks like a rugby shirt.

The photo was revealed on the very reliable Football Shirt Culture website, so the chances of this being the legitimate shirt are extremely high.

What do you think of the new shirt design? Share your feedback in the comments section below.
