Women’s Soccer Introduces New Nike Kits
Erica Dambach’s Nittany Lions were spectacular on their way to the first National Championship in program history this past December. This season, the team will defend the title in style after Nike rolled out some slick new kits to upgrade the Nittany Lions’ wardrobe.

Penn State’s equipment staff and the design team at Nike deserve a round of applause. The upgrade oozes style reminiscent of the U.S. Women’s National Team’s 2015 World Cup blue road kits, while maintaining the no-frills element that undoubtedly signifies a Nittany Lion uniform.
Following the release of the team’s new National Championship crest this past week, anticipation is building for the most exciting home opener in program history. The journey for back-to-back national titles begins on Aug. 19 at Jeffrey Field, where the Nittany Lions face West Virginia in a rematch of last year’s Elite Eight.
