The new United States kit is here. At least via a leak, and we think.
Months ago, a design of a U.S. jersey leaked. It looked legit and now we know it is. That's because Alex Morgan posted a picture from a promo shoot wearing it.
If that's not the kit, U.S. Soccer have put on an incredibly elaborate and unprecedented stunt on to fool people. So much, much more likely, that is the new U.S. kit for the men and women, because nobody has indicated that the two teams will begin wearing different kits.
The U.S. generally releases new kits in even years. That means a new home and away kit for each World Cup year and then the start of World Cup qualifying. With Copa America coming to the U.S. next year, they will probably release their mid-World Cup cycle kit a little early so the new kits will likely drop in the spring of 2016.
But in addition to the complete even-year overhauls, U.S. Soccer and Nike usually release a third kit the year after each World Cup. That's how we got the royal blue with white pinstripe Copa America kit in 2007 and the red kit with the blue sash in 2011. Now, it looks like we're getting this blue one in 2015.
These kits will likely make their debut on February 8, when the men and women both have friendlies on national TV. Then you'll see it plenty through the summer as the women have the World Cup coming up and the men have the Gold Cup.
