Root for the American women while wearing the match that won the first World Cup in their trophy cabinet.


The inaugural Women’s World Cup — technically the “World Championship for Women’s Football for the M&Ms Cup” — held in China in 1991 was a successful, trailblazing event, but it flew under the radar for many in the US and . And though they entered as one of the tournament favorites, the USWNT were not yet the household names they would become eight years later. Spearheaded by the “Triple-Edged Sword” of April Heinrichs, Carin Jennings, and Michelle Akers-Stahl, the Americans came of age in China as they more or less cruised to a final against the other consensus favorite — Norway. Akers-Stahl opened the scoring 20 minutes in only to see the Norwegians pull level less than 10 minutes later. And despite trading blows for nearly another 50 minutes, neither side was able to break through. But Akers-Stahl broke the deadlock again in the 78th minute with her Golden Boot-winning tenth goal of the tournament, giving the Americans the first ever women’s “World Cup” title.


The match side of the wristband features a design inspired by the kits worn by the Americans at China 1991. The flip side takes its cues from the paint-covered kit the ladies will be wearing this summer in Australia and New Zealand.
