The new red sweater, which is patterned directly off of the existing home and road jerseys, will be worn as a third jersey during “select Friday home games”.  They will be paired with the teams standard road blue pants and blue helmets.

“The Amerks are excited to introduce a red third jersey that compliments the current home and road uniforms… our uniform is among the best in all of sports, and the red alternate sweater integrates our current look with the historic Amerks design.” – Rochester Americans VP of business operations Rob Kopacz

First worn during the 1959-60 season, the Americans have gone back-and-forth with a red sweater, alternating between traditional and modern designs.  In a video release from the Americans, the team says this new look “keeps the current Amerks style while maintaining the team’s traditional looks.”
