The Charlotte Hornets have revealed their new City Edition uniform. We will get our first look at the new unis on Monday, November 19, when they host the Boston Celtics. The black uni will feature “Buzz City” across the chest in the team’s teal color. The numbers and letters will also feature the same teal coloring. The sides and back of both the jersey and shorts have a gray pattern designed to represent the wings of a hornet. The jersey includes the phrase “City of Flight” above the jock tag at the bottom left. The shorts will display the Hornets H surrounded by wings, similar to those on the original Nike Air Jordan I and II shoes.
“The City Edition uniform is inspired by our fans and their passion that transforms Charlotte into Buzz City,” said Hornets President & Vice Chairman Fred Whitfield. “It represents the civic pride that our organization has for our city and the dedication that our community has for the Hornets. The contrast of the solemn black and vibrant teal evokes the menacing intensity of a hornet and the swarming nature we want opponents to feel when they visit Spectrum Center. We are excited to see the new design worn on the court by our players and in the stands by our fans.”
