When the United States Women’s National Team heads to France to defend their World Cup championship, they will do so in kits that honor the 1999 championship side.

In the official release of the new United States home and away kits, the all-white home kit features a stripped sleeve cuff reminiscent of those worn by the team known as the 99ers.

The shirt’s front also features three stars above the crest that honors the World Cup-winning teams from 1991, 1999 and 2015. The back panel of the home shirt also features a tonal gray print formed from each of the 50 states.

The away kit is highlighted by a red shirt and shorts with blue socks. The shirt is highlighted by an abstraction of the American flag and the three shining stars. Inner pride on the away shirt reads “One Nation, One Team.”

For each match, the team will wear a new anthem jacket with a pleated back and transparent sleeves. The full collection for the USWNT also includes a blue heather training kit, a drill pant augmented by a USA crest and Swoosh lockup and a suite of lifestyle apparel.
