The Boston Celtics today unveiled their 2019-20 Nike City Edition Uniform, designed to extend beyond the parquet and celebrate the city of Boston.
Paying tribute to the city’s rich history, Boston’s City Edition uniform features a solid green base with gold coloring projected on the Boston wordmark, number, and taping – a color scheme reminiscent of the team’s 2006 St. Patrick’s Day uniform. New to the Celtics uniform collection, the Boston wordmark features a unique Celtic font. Additionally, a Celtic knot is displayed on the gold belt buckle, serving as a representation of loyalty and love between the franchise and its passionate fanbase.
“The look of this uniform pays homage to the history of the Celtics brand and provides an exciting new take on one of our most popular alternate jerseys,” said Celtics Chief Marketing Officer Shawn Sullivan.
The Celtics will debut their new City Edition uniform on Wednesday, Nov. 27, when the team hosts the Brooklyn Nets. Boston will don the City Edition uniforms numerous times throughout the regular season, including a pair of games against the Philadelphia 76ers, and its historic rivalry game with the Los Angeles Lakers at TD Garden on Jan. 20. The Celtics will wear the 2019-20 City Edition uniform for the final time on April 15 against Chicago, when the organization celebrates Fan Appreciation Night during the regular season finale.
The debut of the City Edition uniforms on Nov. 27 will also mark the first day that the City Edition collection is available to fans at retail. City Edition jerseys, along with an assortment of other products in the collection including apparel, headwear, and accessories, are available on the Celtics official online store (Celtics.com/Shop) and in the TD Garden ProShop.
