Canada Soccer and Nike launch new home kit for Women’s National Team

CanWNT will wear the new kit when international football resumes.

Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team’s new Nike home jersey has drawn its inspiration from the maple leaf, an important and iconic symbol in Canadian culture. The new home jersey features a distinctive mix of red colours – Challenge Red, Sport Red and University Red – across a geometric design of maple leaves.

The jersey will be worn by Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team when international football resumes. Earlier this year, Canada qualified for the Tokyo Olympic Games, which was postponed until 2021 because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Canada Soccer Women’s National Team won bronze at back-to-back Olympic Games at London 2012 and Rio 2016.  

Alongside the new jersey, Canada Soccer also unveiled the new Power Lines font which will be used for all jersey numbering and nameplates. The new font typeface was also inspired by the maple leaf, built from the dynamic angles and lines of Canada’s most recognised and beloved symbol.
