Soccer: NWSL Challenge Cup-NC Courage vs Portland Thorns Chris Nicoll-USA TODAY Sports

The NC Courage are set to embark on the 2021 season where they hope to re-claim their championship winning ways. As with any new season, it’s also new kit time. The team made waves when it announced that Naomi Osaka had become an investor in the club and leveraged that star-power to debut the new uni.

Osaka is currently competing in the Australian Open and wore the new strip today. In fact, since it’s made of top quality performance material, she used it in practice.

Along with the blue home jersey, the team also unveiled it’s away uniform as well.

As far as the design of the jerseys the team noted that, “the Courage have designed this years’ ‘Mountains to Sea’ 2021 kits to create a visual connection for North Carolinians. The home kit representing the sea and the away kit, the mountains.”

The NWSL is set to kick off on April 9th with a full schedule release yet to be made.
