SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Jazz have gone dark for their new City Edition jerseys.
With help from Royce O'Neal, Utah unveiled it's new jersey Monday, showing off the #DarkMode version of the team's popular gradient, red-rock theme uniforms.
According to the team's website, the colors on the shorts are an "homage to the late ’90s uniform, which featured a mountain range on the left leg."
"Natural Beauty. Fire. Passion. Power. It’s the next stage of a celebration of our state. It’s the 20–21 Utah Jazz City Edition uniform." the franchise wrote to describe the new threads.
The Jazz played it cool and let most NBA teams release their City Edition uniforms before taking center stage all by themselves.
“Our latest take on this theme continues to represent how this team belongs to the entire state, as these Jazz uniforms remain the only ones with ‘Utah’ emblazoned across the chest.” said Bart Sharp, senior vice president of marketing for the Jazz.
The City Edition uniforms will be one of four designs the Jazz will wear during the upcoming 2020-21 season.
#DarkMode City Edition merchandise will be available to buy for the holidays starting on Dec. 3 on the team's website.
