U.S. Women’s Jersey Is Nike’s Top Soccer Seller

July 2, 2019

Nike has said the home jersey of the U.S. women’s national soccer team is a record-breaking seller on the company’s own retail site.

“The USA Women’s Home jersey is now the number one soccer jersey, men’s or women’s, ever sold on Nike.com in one season,” said Nike President and CEO Mark Parker.

Reuter reports:

The USA women’s jersey sells for $90 on the Nike website.

The Americans will play against England in a semi-final match this evening in Lyon.

Two-thirds of the teams at the start of the tournament wore Nike kits.

Co-captain Megan Rapinoe faced public criticism from Republican U.S. President Donald Trump ahead of her team’s quarter-final clash with France for saying she would not attend a customary White House visit if her team won.

Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded by inviting the squad over Twitter to visit the House of Representatives, while Democratic presidential candidate and Senator Kamala Harris followed up with an invitation to tour the Senate.
