The uniform matchup from the two teams’ preseason meeting in 2019 is what we will get at the Super Bowl.
The San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs are going to face off in Super Bowl LIV in a couple weeks and one of the first big news stories that came out this was the uniform matchup for the game.
The designated home team rotates every year and this year the AFC team is the home team. The Chiefs are going with the red jersey and white pants for the game. That means the 49ers will be in a white jersey. However, it was reported that the 49ers petitioned to be allowed to wear their throwback uniforms for the game.
The NFL denied that request and the image you see above is what the Super Bowl matchup will be.
It is the best move by the league.
We’ve seen some of the new Nike MLB jerseys but not a full uniform yet. That was until the Diamondbacks unveiled their new uniforms for the upcoming season.
First of all, the team eliminated their snakeskin design (a huge plus) and went back to a standard road gray (an even bigger plus) and added an alternate cap/helmet with the snake head (great move).
The new Warriors uniforms have been revealed via Behance, a site dedicated to design. Via that link, it says they work for Nike as a client. Because this is not an official release, I cannot confirm if this is real. But I still would like to take time to critique it anyway as I would be very satisfied if it was real.
Even though there is no white uniform, I would assume they would still have it to pair with the blue one. I don’t care for what Nike calls them so I won’t go with names like Icon or Association or whatever.
But looking at the blue one, it isn’t too different from the previous set except for the updated logo. I am so glad that they didn’t fill in the circle to make it look like a big yellow dot. Not having it filled will obviously make the jersey look less clunky and probably makes it lighter for the players. The new font is a decent look, especially for the number so I can call this a win.
In 2010, the Golden State Warriors introduced a new logo and a new uniform set. The logo pay tribute to their famous “The City” logo. In fact, they went a step further with the placement of the logo on their jersey.
The funny thing about this logo was that the bridge featured on it had not even opened yet. Finally, in 2013, that bridge opened.
Coinciding with their move to the Chase Center in San Francisco, Chris Creamer is reporting that the team has filed a trademark on logos for next season. The team uniforms will also be altered to reflect these changes.
I have some issues with these new Jets uniforms but they aren’t bad in some sense. Their shade of green is great and that reflects very well on the helmets. My issue with this set is that the use of black just isn’t working for me.
Well, the black outline on the numbers doesn’t look bad but it isn’t necessary. What if the team didn’t include black at all in any part of their uniform? I feel that black isn’t necessary. If they didn’t have black, this mono-black uniform would be gone.
But the biggest issue I feel is the NEW YORK plastered on the front. This isn’t college football. We don’t need this. The Browns did the same thing and they instantly regretted it.
The wings on the shoulder and on the pants stripes are OK. Not great. But not bad. It just feels like this has a great potential and maybe the helmet is the only touchdown overall. It just feels like in 10 years, the Jets may have another uniform change.
With the Indians moving on from Chief Wahoo, they have unveiled three new elements to their uniform set as part of the transition. Wahoo is no longer on caps and on sleeves of the uniform. Instead, the Indians are embracing the Block C on all caps and the Wahoo patch instead will featuring the All-Star Game patch.
Their red jersey is actually a nice look, giving us a reminder of the bold red uniforms they wore. I actually think the red jersey works and it is a fresh new look. Especially since the navy version of this was worn so often in previous years. That navy jersey is gone now.
That home cap that pairs with it makes the most sense. The same Block C logo but it still gives the Indians in a sense the same home look with a navy cap with red brim.
Today I encountered an interesting debate on Twitter when I saw this post.
The list talks about the best throwback uniforms in the NFL and the #1 spot went to the Chargers.
Wait? The Chargers are wearing throwbacks this year? Well, actually, they aren’t. But somehow, this article included this set into the throwback debate.
It was no surprise they were going this route. The NHL All-Star Game logo was revealed on Wednesday and of course they would use a Silicon Valley theme. The logo is meant to represent an app icon. It’s so predictable they would choose this theme.
But is that the only thing that San Jose/Silicon Valley is known for?
I remember a few years ago when WWE was hosting WrestleMania in Santa Clara and they too went with a Silicon Valley theme, featuring a “play” button as part of their logo.
The wait is over. After successfully avoiding leaks, the San Francisco 49ers have unveiled a new alternate uniform from the upcoming season. It is inspired by their ever popular 1994 uniforms which they wore during their last Super Bowl title season. Those specific uniforms were a throwback to their 1955 set.
These uniforms are not exactly 100 percent accurate to those uniforms as it will feature white socks (to go with the no longer mandated Color Rush initiative). But apparently the players can opt to wear red socks if they please.
Everything else remains the same, although with the way jerseys are cut these days, the sleeve stripes are moved up significantly. There are no TV numbers and the team will wear the same helmets they wore in 1994.
The addition of white pants is a welcomed look that some 49ers fans have clamored for. It’s a look that the team has not worn since the 1997 season. Now they have the all-white look from 1994 back in their rotation.
Thanks to Niners Nation, it looks like the 49ers are making a uniform change for next season. It appears that there will be a new alt.
Now with the black unis not hitting their five-year shelf life that is required, it makes me wonder if that is being eliminated. Perhaps with Color Rush being no longer a requirement, that the black uniforms will go with it. But the black uniforms were created before Color Rush so maybe we don’t get to rid of it at all.
