Philadelphia, PA – November 21, 2011 – Philadelphia, PA – November 21, 2011 – In preparation for playing in the biggest hockey game of the year, the Philadelphia Flyers today unveiled the much-anticipated jersey the team will wear when they host the New York Rangers in the 2012 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic outdoors in Philadelphia, PA, on Monday, January 2 at 1 p.m. ET (NBC, CBC, RDS).
"It's exciting to see our NHL Winter Classic jerseys unveiled today," said Comcast-Spectacor Chairman and Flyers Founder Ed Snider. "After more than 45 seasons, I take great pride that the Flyers logo is one of the most recognized logos in all of sports. We're looking forward to once again playing on the national stage at the upcoming NHL Winter Classic and reintroducing the world to Philadelphia Flyers hockey."
“The excitement of playing in the biggest regular-season game continues to build," said Comcast-Spectacor President Peter Luukko. "Our new jerseys, which we'll wear when we take the ice outdoors, combine the classic Flyers orange and black with our iconic Flyers Crest. We believe these new jerseys represent our past, present and future. We believe our fans will be just as excited to wear these new jerseys as our players will at the NHL Winter Classic."
Designed by Reebok, the jersey’s primary color is the team’s current recognizable orange with secondary colors black and a vintage off white. The Flyers primary front crest and player numbers are executed in rich felt black and vintage white appliqué.
The player name and number name bar is a contrasting off-white color on the core orange jersey body. This is a design element unique to the Flyers current and past uniforms.
“As the authentic outfitter of the NHL we are very excited to provide the Philadelphia Flyers with a jersey their team can proudly wear on the ice at what has become one of the most celebrated events in sports to ring in the New Year,” said Keith Leach, Director of Merchandise at Reebok.
The shape of the jersey consists of a new silhouette and striping pattern that has never been worn by the team in its history. The heritage stripping is inspired from a sock design worn by the Flyers in the late 1980's. A very strong retro inspired neck lace closure will ground this jersey’s place in NHL Winter Classic uniform history.
