25 August 2023: After Months of Protests: Nike to Release 2023 Women's World Cup Goalkeeper Kits

After criticism and a petition supported by England's goalkeeper Mary Earps, Nike have announced that they will make select FIFA 2023 Women's goalkeeper kits available for purchase by fans.

All teams used the same kits and designs, just with different logos

Nike to Make 4 Women's Goalkeeper Kits Available for Purchase Following Petition by England's Mary Earps

During the women's World Cup, replica kits for national teams were available for purchase, but goalkeeper jerseys were not. This led to criticism from England goalkeeper Earps, who created a petition that received over 150,000 signatures.

In a statement, Nike said that they understood the demand for a retail version of the women's jersey and were working towards solutions for future tournaments.

We strongly expect every team to get a different colorway

"Nike have secured limited quantities of goalkeeper jerseys for England, U.S., France and the Netherlands to be sold through the Federation websites over the coming days," the statement read.

The England men's goalkeeper jersey was available for purchase, but the women's was not. Nike "are now committed to retailing women's goalkeeping jerseys for major tournaments in the future".

It is not known which colorways each team will get, but we strongly expect each team to get a different one. Nike's 2023 Women's goalkeeper kits have neither bespoke designs nor colors, and many teams wore the virtually exact same kit. What seems sure is that Nike won't release the same colorway for every team .
