Nike and US Soccer have unveiled their new home jersey for 2018 featuring what they’re identifying as a “light kit.”
The US will wear the white kit for the first time on April 5 when the US Women’s National Team played Mexico in a friendly. While the white shirt is traditionally the USA’s home shirt, neither Nike nor US Soccer has called the white shirt its home jersey. The US has an away kit, which they’re identifying as their “dark kit.” That one will debut on March 27 when the US plays Paraguay in a friendly.
For the home/light shirt, there are two versions. One is a stylized version of the American eagle, complete with 13 stars representing the original 13 colonies, which forms a unique graphic inside the 2018 USA light jersey, while the stripes shift from red to blue. The diagonal flow of the blue forms an abstract sash, which according to US Soccer indicates “a subtle ode to a regular design element in U.S. kits through the ages.
