Well, it looks like all questions about whether the United States men’s and women’s national teams would get a new 3rd jersey in 2021 have been answered.
The pictures can be found as a result of a search on ISI Photos’ website, with a caption date of February 15th. Searches for players like Christen Press, Crystal Dunn, Megan Rapinoe, Alex Morgan, or Becky Sauerbrunn yield a ton of pictures of the players modeling what appears to be the new look.
UPDATE: ISI seems to have taken the photos down, but not before some grabbed screenshots of the Christen Press photos:

If this is the new 3rd jersey, this is definitely a bold jersey that will surely catch any eye. With a dazzle camouflage design in red and navy, it’s expected that this would also carry the same white namesets that are on the 2020 away jersey. The shorts remain navy blue, and the socks are navy blue with a red streak, keeping with the theme of the jersey.
Of course, it’s unclear when this kit will be released. Due to COVID-19 rendering most of 2020 a wash, both the WNT and MNT didn’t get a chance to wear its current 2019 and 2020 jerseys much. However, with the Nations League playoffs, the Gold Cup and the Olympics this summer, along with the start of World Cup qualifying in the fall, there may be a push to release these jerseys to capitalize on the interest ahead of those major competitions.
