The same cannot be said of the Chargers’ new uniforms, which were revealed on Tuesday. These will be what the players will wear during their very first season in their new home, SoFi Stadium, which is scheduled to open in late summer.
To go along with the new logo’s focus on the powder blue and gold color scheme, navy blue has been entirely removed from the main home and road uniforms. The design on the shoulders has been simplified, and they’ve introduced gold pants with a simple lightning bolt design. The helmets now have numbers on the side, but continue to have the gold face mask — except for the new color rush design. That one will have a navy face mask to go with the all-navy color scheme. That color rush uniform doesn’t eliminate the royal blue version, which is still in rotation.
The Chargers interviewed current and past players about the new uniforms, which are the first significant uniform changes since 2007, and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive.
«I can’t speak for everybody else but I’mma be swaggin this uniform out this year,” defensive back Desmond King said. “I’m definitely going to be the No. 1 best dresser, top swag.»
Chargers legend Antonio Cromartie almost seems jealous that he won’t be able to wear them.
«This right here is my favorite cause you got the old uniform mixed in with the new.”
