Nike drop stunning range of kits as excitement builds for 2019 Women's World Cup

Excitement for this summer's FIFA Women's World Cup has reached new heights after Nike revealed their range of kits for the quadrennial tournament in France. 

The sportswear giant unveiled home and away kits for 14 national teams, including the USWNT, the defending champions who are hoping to clinch a fourth title this summer. 

Nike also dropped kits for Australia, Canadia, England, France, China, South Africa, Chile, the Netherlands, South Korea, Nigeria, Brazil, New Zealand and Norway kit at a special event in Paris on 11 March. 

It's the first time that the kits have been designed specifically for women's teams. In previous years, the kits have been variations of the men's strips. 

The USWNT home and away kits are nothing short of superb. They were designed to evoke memories of the United States' memorable 1999 World Cup win, marking the 20th anniversary of the 99ers' triumph on home soil. 

The reveal was accompanied on social media by a viral video, with some chilling mottos like 'Inspired by the nation... for the nation' and 'Your country. Your team. Your kits.'

France have pulled out all the stops, too. The hosts have plumped for a traditional blue home kit and a striking white away strip, which features hexagonal patterns dotted across the shirt.

 

 

Australia's home kit has attracted a lot of attention. Their street art-inspired top will certainly be one of the most eye-catching kits at this summer's tournament. 

"The famed Golden Wattle and its sickle-shaped stalks and macro and micro shots of the Australian landscape all coalesce in the graphic — one that serves to encapsulate contemporary Australia," said Nike.

Even if we only understood half of that – it still looks seriously cool!

 

England will take to the field in traditional white but also boast a striking red away kit. Phil Neville's Lionesses are hoping to improve on their third-placed finish in 2015.
