Premature Launch: Rockets New City Uniform Leaked

The Houston Rockets new “City Edition” jersey for the 2019-20 season was leaked yesterday afternoon, posted to a fan-run Instagram account known as NBA Worldwide Coverage.

Showing a white jersey with red and silver striping around the collar, the leaked image includes a black wordmark across the chest reading “H-TOWN” with a number in a matching font below in red and silver. On the upper right corner of the jersey below the Nike swoosh is a black bar reading “ROCKETS” in silver.

This is the only look we get at the new jersey, but its authenticity has been confirmed to SportsLogos.Net by a reliable source.

No word on when the Rockets are set to officially unveil the new uniform but the first game it’ll be worn in is scheduled for November 30th, so it’ll at least be sometime in the next twelve days.

The uniform will replace the Rockets Lunar New Year-themed City Edition uniform from last season which was red with gold trim and the team name written across the front in gold Mandarin characters.
