Sources: Carolina Panthers To Unveil New Uniforms Prior To NFL Draft

According to multiple sources, the Carolina Panthers will join the Arizona Cardinals in unveiling new uniforms prior to the NFL Draft, which takes place on April 27-29.

The Panthers’ primary home and road uniforms have largely been unchanged since the franchise’s inaugural season in 1995, as they’ve paired a silver helmet with either a black jersey and silver pants or white jersey and pants.

The current jersey features block numbers and a striping pattern that wraps around the arms, though it has warped into more of a UCLA stipe on modern templates and certain players, while the pants have a truncated stripe in contrasting colors.

Carolina introduced a process blue alternate jersey in 2002, then followed that up with black alternate pants in 2012. The NFL’s Color Rush promotion added process blue pants to the rotation, as well, though they were dropped in 2018.

The most significant change to the Panthers’ look – aside from an updated logo in 2012 – came last season, when they unveiled a black alternate helmet that was worn in a 25-15 win over the Atlanta Falcons.

While one source indicated Carolina planned to remove silver from its color scheme to bring the Panthers in line with Major League Soccer’s Charlotte FC, as both franchises are owned by David Tepper and share Bank of America Stadium, a team spokesperson told they are not removing silver.

“This is not a redesign, this is a color correction to bring our uniforms more in line with our true color,” the spokesperson said. “When Nike took us on in 2012, they chose the color in their color book that was closest to our blue. They now have a better color match.”

The team spokesperson added the stripes on the shoulders will no longer wrap around the arm “as part of change made by Nike to accommodate new technology related to increased mobility,” as well as that Carolina’s logo will not change with the updated uniforms.
