Nike has extended their kit deal with US Soccer for nine more years, which will carry the relationship between the two organizations into its fourth decade.

Under the new deal, Nike will continue to provide kits for the US Men’s National Team, US Women’s National Team and every other US national team down to the US Soccer Development Academy.

Nike and the US Soccer Federation have been partners since 1995.

“Nike has been an outstanding partner and shares our long-term vision for progress, innovation and player development,” said U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulati. “We have enjoyed a tremendous history together that began as we both looked to elevate soccer in this country to new heights, and we look forward to building on our progress.”

    That retro badge is the business. I do hope they keep it.

      Yeah, I still can’t believe we haven’t completely gotten rid of that horrible, childish, 90′s looking badge. It’s so terrible.

      If we go back to that badge for the World Cup, I honestly might cry a little.

      • Christopher Harris says:

        The same applies to the outdated MLS crest. Not sure why USSF and MLS are reluctant to upgrade their logos in a timely manner.

    Can not wait to see the World Cup’s kit!!
