US MNT soccer to add a red third?

Recommended Posts

Didn't see this posted anywhere:

Ever wonder why the U.S. men's national team has gone so long without a red jersey to go with the various white and blue uniforms to come out throughout the years?

Wonder no more.

The U.S. national team will unveil a red third jersey that will be availabe in April. No details yet on the design of the jersey, but USA fans have been clamoring for a red jersey for some time. It's a natural addition considering red is the color of choice for many U.S. national team fans.

I hope that it's the same style as the other two and that we don't change that design for a long time, but knowing Nike, we'll have a different design by next year, probably. The sash design looks great and we should stick with it.

I wouldn't mind that either.

From 2006 vs Latvia

I'm hoping it's something like this:

The Nike Don't Tread On Me jersey. Awesome. I have it. They only sold them in one limited edition run right after that game. That should be the basis for the new red.

I have it on good authority that it was actually Orlando Bloom paying his dues as a stunt double.

On a more serious note, it's a shame that his career was ruined by injuries.

I'm looking forward to seeing how these red alternates look. Wanted to get my hands on a DTOM shirt but as a poor college student at the time, it wasn't quite in the budget.

Agreed on John O'Brien and the red alternates. I actually have a 2002 O'Brien jersey in honor of this:

Nike is taking fan submissions for mottos to be put on the third jerseys.

I submitted "E pluribus victoria."

The #redallover Twitter hashtag is hilarious. Mostly for the wrong reasons. Some things shouldn't be crowdsourced.

Why can't they just make these their primaries and call it a day? This is the sharpest they've ever looked and it's based on what the USMNT wore during its biggest victory in its otherwise relatively insignificant history. Besides, it's about time that US teams stop shying away from red... the Soviet Union's been gone for two decades now (holy s**t I'm gettin' old! :P )

:blink:

It sounds like a merger of the two US national mottoes, "In G-d We Trust" and "E pluribus unum."

That, or the grand finale of your basic wedding ceremony.

You counting on a lot of bachelors among the judges?

at least they won't be black anthracite!.... and even though red shirts do remind me of the '98 world cup team and their dead last finish, something like the DTOM look would be a definite improvement

found a photo of that team and a photo of a young blond-haired Landon too :)!

I'm currently in the top five! If my entry is chosen, they'll send me a jersey, but I'm more excited to see "Indivisible" stitched on the shirt.

Congrats. Which was yours?

Out of those five I like "Only the Brave" the most.
