Nike and the NFL released the league’s new look on Tuesday, as they unveiled the new uniforms for the league’s teams in New York — except for the Green Bay Packers.
As ESPN.com points out, the Packers opted not to go along with the new changes. The primary alterations did not change the logo, color scheme or much else with the look of the uniform, rather Nike made changes to the fabric, feel and performance of the jersey. Yet, the Packers aren’t going along with those either.
“The Green Bay Packers have chosen to stay with their traditional design aesthetic as well as their former uniform fabrication for the coming season,” the Packers’ page on Nike.com reads. “In addition to serving as the Packers on-field supplier for uniforms, sideline apparel, practice wear and baselayer, Nike will provide both men’s and women’s fan wear apparel.”
In fact, a Packers spokesperson told ESPN.com that the only change in the Packers’ uniforms next season will be the Nike logo in place of where the Reebok logo used to be. Reebok had been the apparel supplier of the NFL until this year.
