There won't be a traditional replica version of the new Nike USA 2017 Gold Cup kit.

The Nike USA 2017 third kit was released as Authentic and Replica version - both kits are looking virtually identical

The authentic version is the same as the version the players wear, while the Replica was usually a version that is looking almost identical to the authentic one but comes without Nike's Aeroswift technology. The Replica version (90 USD) is the usual fans' choice due to the high price of the Aeroswift kit (165 USD).



However, for fans who do not want to pay more than 150 USD for a kit, Nike will release a shirt ('Tee') with a similar design as the match kit for just 40 USD. Nike decided to slightly lower the retail price of the Match Jersey from 165 USD to 155 USD for the new USA 2017 Gold Cup jersey, however.
