WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Washington Wizards have unveiled their campaign for the 2022-23 season celebrating the team’s 25th anniversary since rebranding to the Wizards name in 1997.


To commemorate the season, Washington will unveil their new Classic Edition jersey highlighted by the white, blue and bronze uniform. The Wizards will also reveal a newly-designed court in the same style which will be used concurrently with the Classic Edition jerseys during select games throughout the season.
