U.S. women’s soccer team to wear pride jersey against Sweden today

The men have done similar this month.

If you watch today’s U.S. Women’s National Team soccer friendly against Sweden, you will notice the women wearing special jerseys in honor of LGBT pride month.

U.S. Soccer is teaming up for the promotion with the You Can Play Project. The men wore pride jerseys in their match last week against Venezuela. In addition to the match against Sweden, the USWNT will also wear the jerseys Sunday against Norway.

The Sweden game starts at 1:30 p.m. ET on on ESPN2 and Univision Deportes Network. The Norway match starts at 1:15 p.m. ET on Fox.

A set of game-issued jerseys from each team will be available in an online charity auction. In addition, fans will have the opportunity to purchase customized jerseys with the rainbow numbers through ussoccerstore.com.

A special “One Nation. One Team.” hat with rainbow lettering will be on sale. Proceeds from all three opportunities will be donated to the You Can Play Project, U.S. Soccer announced.

Here is how the men’s jersey looked in action against Venezuela:
