CHICAGO (March 25, 2011) – “Indivisible” has been chosen as the motto for the U.S. Men’s National Team’s new Nike red jersey. The motto will be featured on the sleeve of each player’s jersey when the kit debuts against Argentina on Saturday, March 26 at New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
The new national team uniform was inspired by supporters who voiced a desire for a red jersey to complete the red, white and blue kit trio to mirror the U.S flag. Hearing their rally calls, Nike took it one step further by partnering with U.S. Soccer and inviting fans to write a new motto for the team in a twitter-based campaign entitled “#RedAllOver.”
The winning motto “Indivisible” was chosen from more than 6,000 after fans submitted ideas by tweeting #RedAllOver, and will be heat pressed on the sleeve of the new jersey for the friendly against Argentina. As part of the “#RedAllOver” campaign, fans are encouraged to wear red in support of the Men’s National Team during the game at New Meadowlands Stadium.
The jersey is on sale now at ussoccerstore.com, nikestore.com and at Niketown New York. The red kit can also be purchased at New Meadowlands Stadium during the game.

The environmentally-friendly jerseys are made entirely from recycled polyester, with each jersey being produced from up to eight recycled plastic bottles. The evolved construction and materials significantly reduce the weight of the garment and ventilation, improving feel and performance.
Kickoff for the team’s international friendly against Argentina is set for 7 p.m. ET with live coverage on ESPN2, Univision and ESPN3.com. Fans can also follow online at ussoccer.com’s MatchTracker and at Twitter @ussoccer.com.
