Calgary Stampeders Reveal New Black Alternate Uniform

The Canadian Football League’s Calgary Stampeders unveiled a new black alternate uniform this week that will make its on-field debut against the Edmonton Elks in the Labour Day Classic on Monday.

This is the sixth iteration of the Stampeders’ black uniform, dating back to the 1994 season when they became the first CFL team to don an alternate look. They are 33-11 all time while wearing black uniforms, including a 48-15 win over the Elks that season.

The latest version features red and white UCLA-style stripes on the sleeves and a white collar and cuffs. Calgary’s primary logo can be seen on the chest above red numbers in their custom “Outlaw” font.

There is a sublimated “CGY” pattern on the sleeves, while a red “CGY” patch has been placed above the nameplate on the back of the jersey. The black pants, meanwhile, include the same stripes as the shoulders.

The look is complete with a red helmet, a reflective grey horse logo on both sides, a black facemask, and a barbed wire stripe down the middle. This helmet was first worn in last year’s Labour Day Classic loss to Edmonton alongside the previous black uniform.

The kickoff of Monday’s game between the Elks and Stampeders – also referred to as the Battle of Alberta – is set for 2:30 p.m. local time (4:30 p.m. ET) at McMahon Stadium in Calgary. While you wait for the game to start, check out more photos of the uniforms below.
