Designed by Nike, the creation of the red national team kit was driven by consumer demand and completes a trio of jerseys, each representing one of the three colors of the U.S. flag â€“ red, white and blue. With the same design as the white home kit and the blue away kit, the red version includes a blue sash and blue trim.
In a unique campaign called â€œ#RedAllOverâ€ U.S. Soccer and Nike provided fans with the opportunity to write a new motto that will be featured on the U.S. Menâ€™s National Teamâ€™s new red uniform. Fans had five days to submit their motto on Twitter and the most inspirational motto will be embroidered on the sleeve of the playersâ€™ uniforms they will wear against Argentina. As part of the â€œ#RedAllOverâ€ campaign, fans are encouraged to wear red in support of the Menâ€™s National Team during the game at New Meadowlands Stadium.
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.
