CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Charlotte Hornets are back and they now have the uniforms for their return to the NBA in the 2014-15 season.
One month after officially changing their name back to the Hornets, the team unveiled its new duds Thursday during a news conference at Time Warner Cable Arena.
The team will have white home uniforms, purple road uniforms and a teal alternate that can be worn in either location. The home and road uniforms feature the word “Hornets” on the front, while the alternate jersey says “Charlotte.”
“It was important for us that our new uniforms reflect the heritage and history of the original Hornets both visually and philosophically, while also having aspects of the evolution to a new brand,” said Hornets Sports & Entertainment President & COO Fred Whitfield. “We wanted a look that was sharp and precise, echoing the attributes of our team. We are elated to unveil our new look to our fans and hope they are as excited by the uniforms as we are.”
The teal alternate uniform can be worn 16 to 20 times per season.
Fans can begin pre-ordering jerseys in August at the Hornets Fan Shop. Jerseys are expected to arrive in late September.
