Today at the 2010 Sponsor Breakfast, the Rebels unveiled their new alternate third jersey.
The most noticeable change from the previous “R” uniform is the base color. The predominant burgundy has been replaced by a beige color that adds both a retro tone, along with a western feel. The standalone “cow skull” shoulder path, taken from the teams primary logo, reinfoces this western concept. The striping has been moved to the middle of the jersey, and a burgundy shoulder “yolk” added to the top of the sweater.
The most predominant feature of the jersey, the popular “R” logo which the team has worn since 2001, has been madeover. The black fill adds strength to the logo, and compliments the neck collar. The team will wear black pants and black helmets to complete the look. Player socks will be beige with two burgundy stripes through the middle.
Oct. 2 vs. Medicine Hat will mark the debut for the new uniform, the same night the jersey will go on sale.
