For Immediate Release
The Los Angeles Clippers unveiled today at Media Day a new “Back in Blue” short-sleeve alternate uniform that will be worn for Sunday home games throughout the 2013-14 season. The alternate uniforms will debut on-court on October 19th during a preseason game against the Denver Nuggets in Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.
Designed by adidas, the uniforms are inspired by heritage of the Clippers organization and the Nautical culture of the southern California area. The “Back in Blue” uniform features light blue color for the first time since the team was based in San Diego. Light blue has a rich history with the organization and has been a part of the team’s identity since they were the Buffalo Braves in the 1970’s. The lightweight woven shorts feature three iconic nautical flags to represent each of the team’s letters – L-A-C- to stand for Los Angeles Clippers.
The uniforms are part of the adidas and NBA Pride Uniform Collection, developed to give teams a unique uniform with rich details and colors indigenous to the team’s region or history. The Clippers will wear the uniforms a total of eight times this season. The jerseys are available for pre-order right now on Clippersstore.com.
