GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Packers are putting the “Green” in “Green Bay” with their newest uniforms.
The new alternate uniform for the Packers is the team’s latest throwback uniform and has a different look than their previous throwbacks; the 50s Classic Uniform is inspired by the team's uniforms from 1950-1953. The uniforms are all green, with gold numbers and stripes similar to the jerseys worn in the 1950s.
The uniforms utilize the Packers' traditional green, with gold numbers and stripes. The alternate jersey will be worn with matching green pants with gold stripes and matching green socks.
The Packers first wore green in the mid-to-late 1930s.
After taking a year off from alternate uniforms, the Packers will debut the 50s Classic Uniforms in Week 7 on Oct. 24 at Lambeau Field against Washington.
The new jerseys debuted in a video on packers.com and the team's social media platforms Thursday.
Packers president/CEO Mark Murphy said the new jerseys highlight the team's history.
"The 1950s were one of the most interesting times in our organization's rich history, creating the bridge between two of the greatest eras in pro football," Murphy. said "With the NFL growing rapidly, this time period set the stage for the construction of Lambeau Field and for the team's success in the 1960s and beyond. We hope our fans enjoy celebrating our history with this new alternate uniform."
Murphy, in a column on the team’s website earlier this month, noted the throwback and alternate jerseys are popular amongst fans and the team loves wearing them.
The 50s Classic Collection is now available for fans to purchase in the Packers Pro Shop and includes the 50s Classic Jersey along with a new line of assorted apparel including t-shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, caps and more.
The Packers have had two third jerseys in recent years. One was worn during the 2010-11 and 2013-14 seasons and celebrated the team's 1929 season. The more recent third jersey, worn from 2015-19, was a re-creation of the team's uniform in the 1940s.
