The official Gatas uniform is orange with white accents. All of the members of Morning Musume wore jerseys similar to the Gatas uniforms in the Go Girl ~Koi no Victory~ PV. There is also a second uniform in a light blue color that is not worn as often, but recently made an appearance at a training camp held in June. The keepers Konno Asami and Nozomi Tsuji wore new red jerseys for the duration of the camp. There is also a third uniform that was worn for a futsal clinic held on July 2, 2005. These clinic uniforms were light pink.

Other uniforms are navy blue and orange for home games, and orange with navy blue for away games.
