Hawks To Unveil Third Jersey

ATLANTA HAWKS TO LIGHT UP PHILIPS ARENA
WITH BRIGHT NEW UNIFORMS

ATLANTA (Nov. 16, 2004) --The Atlanta Hawks will begin a new chapter in franchise history on Wednesday, November 24 against the Miami Heat at Philips Arena, when the team dons their second road uniforms in a game for the first time. The unique on-court look incorporates yellow as the primary color, with black trim, and in lieu of the traditional "Hawks" across the front of the jersey, the club has added "Atlanta" emblazoned in red.

"We are excited about the debut of our new second road uniforms, and believe our fans will like the design, color scheme and look that identifies the city of Atlanta on the front of the jersey," said Hawks President and CEO Bernie Mullin. "In this new era of Atlanta Hawks basketball, this is one example of our renewed commitment to reconnect the Hawks with the Atlanta community that we are proud to be a part of."

The Hawks will wear the second road uniforms at these home games during the season, as well as 4-6 select road contests:

  • November 24 vs. Miami Heat (7:30 pm tipoff)
  • December 30 vs. Seattle Sonics (2:00 pm tipoff)
  • January 17 vs. New Jersey Nets (2:00 pm tipoff)
  • March 5 vs. Philadelphia 76ers (7:00 pm tipoff)

    The new uniforms, which are produced by Reebok, are going to be unveiled on Tuesday, November 16 before the Hawks take on the Houston Rockets at Philips Arena. Instead of the usual warm-up attire, players will sport the yellow and black while they loosen up for the game. Tipoff is slated for 7:30 pm, with doors opening at 6:30.

    Kids 12-and-under can receive a free yellow and black replica uniform by attending the Hawks' January 17 game against the New Jersey Nets and the March 5 game versus the Philadelphia 76ers. Courtesy of Delta Air Lines, the first 5,000 kids through the doors will receive the jersey on January 17 and the shorts on March 5.
