Under Armour introduces two exceptional products tailored exclusively for women: the Women’s UA Magnetico Elite 3 FG Soccer Cleats and the HeatGear® Armour High Sports Bra.
While the Unisex UA Magnetico has long been adored by footballers worldwide, years of attentive listening to the invaluable feedback of female athletes and meticulous study of their biomechanics have culminated in a UA cleat explicitly designed to cater to and bolster the unique attributes of a woman’s foot.
The Women’s UA Magnetico Elite 3 moulds itself around an athlete’s heel and forefoot, acknowledging the pronounced disparities between women’s and men’s feet.
The UA Clone upper adapts and flexes to the contours and movements of the foot, ensuring an impeccable fit. Its distinct 3D texture affords optimal ball control upon receiving, while specialized studs alleviate pressure and provide unparalleled support, empowering footballers to unleash their full potential with blistering speed.
The HeatGear® Armour High Sports Bra exudes an unmatched blend of form and functionality, catering to athletes who demand compression apparel that exerts unparalleled support during their relentless pursuit of greatness.
Smooth and adjustable straps securely lift and embrace, while a flat hook ensures unwavering stability and comfort. The inclusion of a mesh back with a generous keyhole design not only facilitates enhanced breathability and moisture management but also simplifies donning and doffing.
From the finely engineered cleat studs to the ergonomic strap configuration of the sports bra, Under Armour synergizes cutting-edge technology with invaluable athlete insights, rendering these products perfectly attuned to the rigours of on-pitch battle.

Rooted in the essence of battle, the concept for the film and track blossomed.
Kelley and Alex, both eminent players representing formidable teams, may well face each other in the tournament’s later stages. Their arduous contest finds its counterpart in the musical showdown between Gavlyn and Nadia, rap artists hailing from the athletes’ respective nations.
Acknowledging the profound influence of music on sports, culture, and the indomitable spirit of athletes, the song, “Armour Up,” poignantly narrates the athletes’ sagas and motivations, uniting teams while emphasizing the significance of collective pursuit in safeguarding the sanctity of their endeavour.
