No women’s team in Olympic history has done it: winning the gold medal the year after taking the World Cup. But the US Women’s National Team is set to change that.
Since 2014, the USWNT has been the team that captured not only America’s attention but the world’s. The team’s unprecedented two-year tear includes winning the CONCACAF Gold Cup, Algarve Cup, and World Cup, the latter becoming the third for the team, making the U.S. the winningest nation in Women’s World Cup history. And now, as the heavy favorites for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, the team is ready to deliver their next record-breaking performance. Gear up for a historical finish with a perfectly summer feminine favorite.
While the chant’s origins are debated—did it stem from fans of the Naval Academy? Utah State? San Diego State?—over the past few years “I BELIEVE THAT WE WILL WIN” has become nearly as ubiquitous a soccer cheer as “Seven Nation Army.”
Rep your American pride this summer while declaring your belief that the U.S. Women’s National Team will win their fifth gold medal in six attempts, and sixth medal overall!
After 21 years, U.S. Soccer updated their crest, and it’s a slick, streamlined and bold badge of honor that nods to the past but looks to a rich future. The 2016 rebranding draws on the initial 1913 crest with seven red and six white vertical stripes representing America’s foundation and flag. Topping off the stripes are those tried and true three letters in blue: USA. Gone are the distracting stars and the goofy soccer ball from the 1995 crest. Don the shield and ready for a new era in U.S. Soccer.
Since U.S. Soccer announced its new rallying cry, “One Nation. One Team,” in 2014, the U.S. Women’s National Team has been the team to be. Their unprecedented two-year tear includes winning the CONCACAF Gold Cup, Algarve Cup, and World Cup, the latter becoming the third for the team, making the U.S. the winningest nation in Women’s World Cup history. Pay homage.
On the field of the beautiful game there ain’t any happiness without victory, and so, on behalf of U.S. Soccer, we had to update the famed words of our forefathers with one small yet significant revision. And when it comes to the pursuit of victory, after more than a century on the pitch, U.S. Soccer knows plenty about it. From Olympic medals to World Cup titles, CONCACAF Gold Cup championships to Algarve Cup wins, together the U.S. Men’s and Women’s National Teams have scored an unprecedented haul of hardware. Pay homage.
