Players on the U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team might wear one or both of these jerseys when they take the field at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
Possible designs for the jerseys the national team will wear next year have surfaced on the Internet. One Twitter user claims to have an inside man at Nike, who sent him photos of the new-look design.
The home jersey includes a collar and a blue sash, which runs from the top right shoulder to the lower left hip. The road jersey is all blue with a white ring just below the neck.
Both feature the Nike swoosh on one side of the chest and the “Centennial Crest” on the other.
The crest was a special feature on U.S. soccer jerseys in 2013, as it commemorated the 100th anniversary of the founding of the United States of America Foot Ball Association (now known as the U.S. Soccer Federation). The special-edition shield might have staying power.
Here is a larger photo of the possible 2014 jerseys.
