New Thunder Uniform Reflects Hometown Spirit
OKLAHOMA CITY, Sunday, March 1, 2015 – The Oklahoma City Thunder will wear a new uniform for its final four Sunday home games of the regular season, beginning March 8. The alternate design was unveiled by Thunder broadcaster Lesley McCaslin during the “Thunder Live” pregame show on FOX Sports Oklahoma, prior to the broadcast of Sunday’s Thunder vs. Lakers game.
Fans can purchase the jersey and shorts now on NBAThunderShop.com. The uniform will be available soon at both Thunder Shop locations downtown, inside Leadership Square and Chesapeake Energy Arena.
The white, sleeved top of the new uniform features the Thunder partial logo in the center of the chest, while the shorts showcase bolts in Thunder blue and sunset colors on a white backdrop.
The team will wear the uniform for its March 8, March 15, March 22 and April 5 home games.
“We’re excited to tell the story of our team, our fans and our hometown with this new alternate uniform,” said Brian Byrnes, senior vice president of Sales and Marketing for the Thunder. “We believe the uniform embodies the spirit of this city, with simple and forward-looking design elements that showcase the three letters that resonate in our arena and have come to represent our team and our community: OKC.”
This new uniform is the second alternate the Thunder has introduced; in addition to the home white and road blue uniforms, the team added a navy alternate in November 2012.
