The Arizona Wildcats’ football team will have new uniforms this season, according to Michael Lev of the Arizona Daily Star.
The #ArizonaWildcats will have new football uniforms this season. Official date of the unveiling is TBD (but likely sooner than later).— Michael Lev (@MichaelJLev) June 21, 2017
The date of the unveiling is unknown, but Lev reports it is “likely sooner than later.”
The Wildcats’ current design — red-to-blue gradient sleeves with solid numbers — was introduced before the 2013 season and consistently ranks as one of the worst uniform sets in the Pac-12 Conference, so news of a uniform update will likely be well-received by fans (and recruits).
However, seeing that the Arizona basketball team added gradient to its uniforms this season, it would not be surprising if gradient remains part of the new football uniforms in some way. It seems to be a universal theme Nike wants the UA to feature (other UA teams, like Arizona soccer, have gradient uniforms, too).
But what do you want the new uniforms to look like? Leave your suggestions in the comment section below.
Here’s my preference:
