Here it is, as just tweeted by @USSoccer
What do we think? As a US supporter and a soccer shirt fetishist (gotta catch 'em all bro!), I love it. The sash design is solid and this color scheme here is much better than the current home shirt with the thrilling light-gray-on-white design (the white-on-navy away kit is nice). I've been wanting them to do a red shirt forever (that Don't Tread On Me shirt from WC06 qualifying was very limited production, just teasing me).
I didn't see any indication of the new "Red All Over" motto they've been talking up, so I asked. And while I was writing this post they retweeted me and now I'm twitter famous! I'm gonna be a millionaire selling pithy tweets! (That's how it works, right?)
Well alright, Saturday is shaping up to be a good soccer day: after the TIMBERS vs Toronto game in the morning (11am, ROOT/FSNW), we've got a choice US match vs Argentina (4pm, ESPN2) complete with new shirts.
(Now if only they'd redesign that badge....)
