NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Jets have unveiled new uniforms and a tweaked team logo at an event in midtown Manhattan.
It’s the first time the franchise has rebranded its uniforms, apparel and merchandise since 1998.
The uniforms will feature combinations of a unique shade of green called Gotham green and spotlight white, along with stealth black that’s featured in an alternative uniform the team can wear up to three times in a season. The jerseys also feature “New York” in small letters across the chest and above the players’ numbers.
The helmet is a shiny green, replacing the white headgear the players wore the last 20 years. The new logo features the letters “JETS” in white, with a white football under it.
It’s all part of a team-wide rebranding through a process that began in 2014. The new colors and logo will be plastered throughout MetLife Stadium for home games, and there will be modifications made to the end zones and walling inside the stadium, along with video graphics.
