This Saturday (March 26, 2011), the United States Men’s National Soccer Team (USMNT) host Argentina in a friendly match at the Meadowlands Stadium in New Jersey.
To mark the occasion the UMNT will unveil their new third color kit – a vivid red shirt with an obsidian blue sash across the front – regarded by the team as “the people’s jersey.” Nike partnered with US Soccer and invited fans to make their own mark on the shirt. A twitter based campaign entitled “Red All Over” gave participants the chance to write a new motto for the team to be embroidered on one of the shirt sleeves. As with all USMNT jerseys, the third shirt features symbolic graphics including a coiled rattlesnake on the inside of the neck and the message “DTOM” (Don’t Tread On Me) above the heart on the inside of the U.S. Soccer Federation crest.
The new kit echoes past USMNT designs, working to instill the team’s history and tradition in the Nike’s most environmentally-friendly technically advanced uniform.
Available now from Nike.
The shirt is shown in dynamic motion on Mr. Dempsey above. Details of the USMNT Red Kit are available after the jump.
