The Hornets are bringing back a classic as they have unveiled their new purple ‘Classic Edition’ uniform for the 2019-20 season. Similar to the teal and white versions of the uniform from the past few years, this uni echoes the same design worn by the original Charlotte Hornets. The purple uniforms debuted during the 1994-95 season and the 2019-20 season marks the 25th anniversary for them.
The purple ‘Classic Edition’ jersey will feature the familiar crossover v-neck and multi-colored pinstripes in light blue, green, royal blue and teal. For the shorts we will see the classic Hornets logo on the waist and the same white, purple and teal trim as the originals.
“After having had teal and white Classic Edition uniforms the last two seasons, it is only right that we complete the set with the purple one this year. With this season being the 25th anniversary of the purple uniform’s introduction in 1994, this is the perfect time to bring back a Classic Edition version.” -Hornets President & Vice Chairman Fred Whitfield
Fans will get to see the uniform in action for five home games this season.
