The 76ers have revealed their new ‘Classic Edition’ uniform that they will rock this upcoming season. The new uniform pay homage to the 76ers’ legacy and the spirit of the city of Philadelphia, known for its ability to reinvent itself. The new ‘Classic Edition’ uniform is a replication of the jerseys that Philadelphia wore for half of the 1970-71 season. The jersey predominantly features a “Seventy Sixers” wordmark design, inspired by the block lettering “PHILA” uniforms.
“We are excited to unveil this season’s Classic Edition uniform, presented by StubHub, which celebrates the city’s rich history and how it has evolved over time. The uniform may have had a short-lived moment in the spotlight, but we consider it a classic that emerged as time passed and is a true vintage treasure to the ‘Seventy Sixers’ brand to be shared with our passionate fans.” -Philadelphia 76ers President Chris Heck
The 76ers will be one of twelve NBA teams to feature a Classic Edition uniform this coming season. The Classic Edition will be one of five uniforms we will see the 76ers wear this season, joining the Icon, Association, City and Statement.
