Portland Thorns Football Club have become the first National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) team to don a customized kit from league technical partner Nike.
The Thorns debuted their tailored 2015 home uniform during their season opening win against the Boston Breakers. The jersey worn by Portland this season is in the primary red of the Oregon team with white accenting on the collar. Thorn designs run vertically along the side panels of the shirt in white. A tonal thorn pattern appears throughout the front and back of the jersey for a very distinct look that has been very well received by Portland’s fans.
The Portland Thorns 2015 Nike away jersey uses a white base with bands in red and black running across its upper chest area and onto its sleeves. The back of the shirt is all black.
Featuring internationals such as Alex Morgan, Tobin Heath (USA), Christine Sinclair (Canada) and Nadine Angerer (Germany), the Portland Thorns made it to the semi-finals of the 2013 NWSL playoffs after a championship season in 2013.
