Charlotte Hornets Unveil New Buzz City Uniforms

Written By:  •  Thursday, November 1, 2018

The Charlotte Hornets unveiled their new “City Edition” uniform this morning, sticking with the “BUZZ CITY” idea they ran with last season.

Updated from last season, the still black uniform now features the “BUZZ CITY” wordmark arched across the chest in teal and black.

“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 in the official press release.  “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.”

On the waistband is a new logo, an “H” inside a hexagon (like a honeycomb) with wings on either side, the Hornets secondary logo of a hornet with a basketball body coming in to ruin your picnic is the side of both legs on the shorts.

Hidden elements include grey wings on the sides and back of the jersey, a “CHA” tag hidden under the flap on the right leg of the shorts, and a “City of Flight” jock tag at the bottom of the jersey.

Charlotte will wear their new uniform for the first time on November 19th at home against the Boston Celtics and will be worn 17 times over (ten at home), the full schedule here:
