The Midshipmen and Under Armour have released this years uniform for the Army-Navy game. The uniform will honor the Navy mascot, Bill the Goat. The uniform starts with the Navy helmet that will feature the Goat on one side with the players numbers on the other. The jersey features sleeves with two stripes on the outside with the Navy logo in the center. This color-blocking look was inspired directly from the trim of the blanket popularly worn by Bill the Goat. The white pants match the jersey and is highlighted by its side stripe and the Marine Corps insignia on the hip. The final touch of Bill the Goat comes on the players cleats and gloves.
“The Naval Academy has such a rich history, we knew we needed to make a uniform that could uniquely tell their story and convey their exuberant spirit. The Navy Goat is the perfect symbol in which to understand the school’s longstanding excellence and traditions. We wanted the powerful narrative around the goat to shine through as a way to build enthusiasm from both the players and the fans.” - Nick Billiris, Senior Design Director of Team Sports at Under Armour
