In a video posted to social media on Friday afternoon, the New England Patriots announced they’ll reveal their new uniforms on April 20 — a fitting way to celebrate Patriots Day.
The nine-second video showed the shadowy outline of a player wearing the new uniforms accompanied by the words “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.”
New England has worn its current uniforms since 2000, and has seen unprecedented levels of success in that timeframe, winning six Super Bowls and making nine total appearances in the big game. That’s a big reason why the new uniforms aren’t expected to be a complete overhaul of the Patriots current look, but should fall more in line with the subtle tweaks revealed by the Indianapolis Colts earlier this week.
A quick manipulation of the teaser video shows some of the details of what appears to be the new road uniform. It includes a silver helmet with a red facemask and a white jersey with the “Flying Elvis” logo on the sleeves and New England’s current number font. The jersey does not have side panels like the previous set and seemingly pulls inspiration from the Patriots’ Color Rush jersey, which included UCLA stripes on the shoulders.
The Patriots are one of seven teams set to have new or updated uniforms for the 2020 season, including the aforementioned Colts, Atlanta Falcons, Cleveland Browns, Los Angeles Chargers, Los Angeles Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Most have already unveiled their new looks, while the Chargers (April 21) and Rams (unspecified date in May) are set to follow suit in the coming weeks.
