The Philadelphia 76ers revealed new home, road and alternate uniforms Thursday night, a month after revealing their new logo.
“While we continue to look toward the future, our focus in updating our on-court identity was to incorporate distinct design elements made famous over three eras by the legendary players who have proudly represented this franchise and our city,” said Sixers Chief Marketing and Innovation Officer Tim McDermott “Our new uniforms symbolize a new chapter for our franchise while providing a bold look for the next generation of Sixers.”
The new home and away jersey’s feature the word “PHILA” on the front.
“PHILA” is boldly emblazoned across the chest of the home and road jerseys, a feature that reflects the proud, rich tradition of Philadelphia basketball and is directly linked to the iconic design worn by Chamberlain’s 1966-67 NBA Championship team. The alternate red uniforms are reminiscent of the garments Erving and his NBA Champion teammates made famous in 1982-83 with “SIXERS” centered on the chest.
The Sixers will wear the new uniforms during the 2015-16 season.
