Nike announced via Twitter on Wednesday that Rose Lavelle had joined the company’s football family.

The USWNT midfielder was previously signed with New Balance, releasing a custom cleat with the brand back in March 2021.

The Nike deal comes as Lavelle makes her highly anticipated return to the states after a spell with Manchester City.

Lavelle will be joining OL Reign after the club acquired her rights in 2020. The star midfielder is presumed to be available for selection as early as the team’s May 30 game against the Washington Spirit.

Lavelle is also expected to be a bright spot for the USWNT in the upcoming Olympic games, having been named to the June Summer Series roster earlier this week
