According to Nike, the new kits also include a number of upgrades based on player feedback.

A V-neck on the jersey, as well as removing drawcords and side-seams on the shorts were just some of the changes made. Heat mapping was also used to determine where to place ventilation zones on the uniform.

Keep an eye out for the Canadian team to don their red and white jerseys this coming June.
