February 06, 2020 - Separated by a short drive along Tobacco Road, the biannual matchup between the basketball teams of Duke University and the University of North Carolina (UNC) is one of the fiercest rivalries in sport. The two programs first faced off January 24, 1920. For their initial regular-season matchup of the 2019-20 season, Duke and UNC will wear special uniforms that harken back to that first game.
The body is covered in the programs’ respective tones of heathered blue. The front of the jerseys are characterized by the program logo and are absent of numbers, mirroring the teams' 1920 look. On the inside bottom hem of the jerseys are the Roman numerals MCMXX-MMXX, which translates to 1920-2020. A gold jock tag and gold ELITE tag on the neck signifies a special distinction: programs that have won at least one national championship as a Nike school.
A retail version of the Duke and UNC jerseys releases February 7.
May 22, 2019 - Fresh of its maiden season, the FC Internazionale Milano’s women’s team debut the club's 2019-20 home kit.
The design of the new shirt takes inspiration from the classic away kit the Nerazzurri wore during the 1989-90 season.
“Inter has an incredible home identity, so the challenge was to execute their iconic stripes in a modern and disruptive way, while also respecting their rich tradition,” said Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director. “We looked back at the iconic diagonal stripes used on the away jersey in 1989 as well as the old club crest and it led us to this very classic design with a break of diagonal stripes across the chest.”
Diagonal stripes were also a key element of a former club crest used between 1978 and 1988, and for the 2019-20 season these form the focal point of the shirt. The kit is completed by black shorts and colour blocked socks – half black, half blue – taken directly from the neck of the Biscione, an enduring club symbol.
An elevated trim ensures the Inter crest really stands out, and inside the jersey is a tribute to more Inter heritage via a St George’s Cross, to highlight the club’s connection to the city of Milan, the word "Internazionale" and the year 1908, Inter’s founding year.
The 2019-20 Inter Milan home kit will be available May 23 from official retailers, nike.com and store.inter.it. Inter’s men’s team will wear the kit for the first time in their final league game of the current season on May 26.
May 02, 2019 - The Blues have called their iconic stadium, Stamford Bridge, home since 1905 — making it fitting inspiration for the 2019-20 home kit. The club’s classic blue jersey is covered in an all-over graphic comprising imagery of the famous North Stand, the East and West Stands and the raucous Shed End merged into an abstract print.
“We’ve created so many memories at The Bridge over the years, so it’s only fitting that we pay tribute to such an iconic stadium through the jersey,” says forward Eden Hazard.
The shirt features a V-neck and a red and white CFC monogram on the back of the collar. Inside, there's a lion (borrowed from the club crest) with “Pride of London” written around it (the Blues mantra). The shorts, also blue, are complemented by white socks that have Chelsea's traditional red and blue trim up the calf.
“The Bridge is hallowed turf for Chelsea players and fans alike,” says Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director. “It’s such a key part of the club’s identity and we are delighted to present a kit that is essentially a tribute to one of England’s oldest and most important stadiums.”
The 2019-20 Chelsea home kit will debut May 4 during the club’s final league home game of the season. It will be available for sale beginning May 2 on nike.com/chelsea and at the Stamford Bridge Megastore.

April 09, 2019 - In 1919, Brasil hosted the first edition of Copa America. Wearing a white kit, the team made history that year by winning the tournament at home and starting a journey of victories that transformed Brazilian football into a national icon.
Merging the early-1920s vintage feel of football with the modern style of contemporary sport, the special-edition Copa America jersey celebrates the 100th anniversary of that energetic moment.
White pays tribute to the historic 1919 trophy. A classic polo neck, player numbers and details on the sleeves are blue.
The Brazilian National Team will debut the 2019-20 Brasil Copa America 100th Anniversary Jersey as part of a special uniform at the first match of the tournament.
April 04, 2019 - The New York Jets unveiled their new uniforms tonight at Gotham Hall in New York City. The three versions keep the Nike Vapor Untouchable chassis and get a modern upgrade for the franchise’s 60th season. Here are five updates to look out for:
1. A bolder green
Home, away and alternate uniforms include a green that was exclusively developed for the Jets. Also new is an all-black base for the alternate uniforms (it's the first you'll see the color since being removed from the team's palette before the 1998 season).
2. New logos
Three new logos (including “Jets” lettering on the helmets without the oval frame or the "NY" type) will appear on the team’s helmets, fan gear and related memorabilia.
3. "New York" reads on the chest
It’s the first time in team history that the city name appears on the uniform.
4. Bold, angular stripes
A new linear design, reminiscent of a jet’s flight trail, runs across the shoulders and down the pant leg. They're more than just looks: The stripes on the shoulder pads meet at the vented grille neckline for improved cooling during play.
5. Updated numbers and font
The jersey’s previous font has been updated to a new, custom typeface with sloped angles intended to evoke a feeling of motion and force.
Fan jerseys are available now on nike.com and at Nike SoHo and Nike House of Innovation.
