Say goodbye to the rocket pop, and say hello to…well, something else.

On Monday, the U.S. Soccer Federation unveiled its latest away kits, which are primarily royal blue with white shoulders. Inside the back of the neck is a pennant tab featuring 13 red and white stripes to represent the original colonies that declared independence and formed the first states.

U.S. Women’s National Team will debut the kits during next month’s Algarve Cup, which will run from Mar. 4-11. The U.S. Men’s National Team will wear them for the first time in their Mar. 25 friendly against Denmark.

Last year, the Federation rolled out two new kits ahead of the 2014 World Cup, both of which featured a switch to royal blue after years of using navy blue as a primary color. Despite cries to have the crest replaced by the one that adorned the Centennial jersey, the Federation has kept the one they’ve used since 1995.

The U.S. Women’s Team will wear the new look during the 2015 Women’s World Cup while the U.S. Men’s Team will sport it during the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup tournament.
