Drake's company just designed jerseys for Canada’s national women’s basketball team

October's Very Own, Drake's clothing company, has already designed plenty of merch for the Toronto Raptors, and now members of Canada's Senior Women's National Team get to sport their very own OVO jerseys too.

The team is only two wins away from heading off to Tokyo for the 2020 Summer Olympics, and hopefully the new jerseys will give them some good luck. 

"On the road to Tokyo, we’re truly grateful to @welcomeOVO for supporting our Senior Women’s National Team," the team's account tweeted along with photos of the new uniforms. "#WeAreTeamCanada #StandOnGuard"

The OVO-designed jerseys are bright red and say "CANADA" in large letters across the top. They also include the company's owl logo and the words "Dream Maker Developments" on the accompanying shorts.

"The newest members of the @welcomeOVO family," reads a tweet from the Toronto Raptors. "Good luck to the women of @CanBball at the Olympic qualifiers. #WeTheNorth."

Canada's national women's basketball team has won eight out of nine games over the past six months and earned a best-ever No. 4 world ranking, according to the Canadian Press.

They'll have to beat Belgium on Thursday and Sweden on Saturday in order to secure a ticket to Tokyo, and hopefully the stylish new jerseys will help them do just that.
