In honor of Pride Month 2017, the US national soccer teams will be sporting colorful new jerseys. Created as part of a partnership with the organization 'You Can Play,' the new jerseys make a powerful statement about the importance of inclusivity in sports.

For the entirety of Pride Month 2017, the men's and women's national soccer teams will wear colorful new uniforms decorated with rainbow-hued numbers. The special jerseys were specifically designed for an ongoing campaign with You Can Play to end homophobia and transphobia in sport -- both of which remain ongoing issues in soccer and other professional sports.

Available in both a red and white version, the colorful jerseys are also available for fans to own via the US Soccer Store.
