Nike and 40 elite female football players from all over the world jointly released 14 national team soccer jersey / football shirt uniform kits specially created for this summer's French women's football feast in Paris, including Canada Women's National Team , witnessing Nike's new cooperation plan to further support female athletes.
Wearing the first Nike jersey, the Canadian women's national team will embark on a trip to France this summer full of information.
The Canadian Football Association signed a partnership with Nike at the end of December 2018. Nike Women’s Football Apparel Head Cassie Looker said: “We are happy to establish a partnership with Canadian football. The image of the maple leaf and the bright red are exciting to be used in future designs. We are already thinking about product plans for 2020 and beyond."
The new home women soccer jersey of the Canadian Women's National Team presents a distinctive red tone, inspired by the maple leaf, a national symbol of Canada for more than 300 years, symbolizing peace, tolerance and unity. The Maple Leaf turns red in spring and turns red again in autumn. This reflects the current situation of the team's current combination of old and new, and expresses the team's determination to fight to the end in France.
The team’s new away soccer jersey is white, and together with the red at home constitute the color of the Canadian flag.
For most of the new century, Canada has always been a powerful force in the women's football world. Since finishing fourth in the 2003 World Cup, Canada's women's football has been ranked in the top ten in the world. The team won bronze medals in the 2012 and 2016 Olympic women's football competitions, and reached the quarter-finals in the 2015 World Cup held in China. In North and Central America, Canada has won two championships in the highest level of women's football in the region, and also won the runner-up five times.
In France this summer, the team will be led by captain Christine Sinclair, who has been the core of Canadian women's football since 2000. Sinclair has the second highest number of goals scored in international competitions in history, and she will lead a new and old team to continue the strong tradition of Canadian women's football.
