Apart from differences in the cuts of the uniforms and the three stars for the women’s three World Cup titles, the men’s and women’s kits are exactly the same.

The phrase “We Can, We Will, We Are, One Nation, One Team” is printed on the inside of the shirt, right behind the crest and right next to the players’ hearts. Additionally, “USA” is knit into the back neck collar and “1 Nation” and “1 Team” are stitched into the cuffs.

The shorts and socks are also new. According to, the shorts are now made from the same material as the jersey top and have a new waistband with no drawstring. The sock features a sleeve that adds protection and should better keep players’ shin guards in place.
