I'd assume early May we'll get to see them as that is when some teams have announced they are going to show them off.

There aren't too many marketing endeavors I'd take from the Argos, but I really like the idea of a Town Hall for season ticket holders. CLICK HERE

Could have held one here on May 1 with Wally and Bene at say, the Orpheum downtown, and given season ticket holders a special sneak peek at the jerseys and sold them at the end of the event (or provided a special online code for $$$ off internet purchase).

This was from the National Post last week:

To add to celebrations of the 100th Grey Cup, the Canadian Football League’s eight teams will be unveiling “re-engineered jerseys” from apparel provider Reebok before training camps begin in June, the league announced Wednesday.

“While we will mark this historic milestone in many ways, we have also worked with Reebok to re-engineer team jerseys for the way the game is played today — and to help our athletes succeed tomorrow,” commissioner Mark Cohon said in a statement.

The league says the new jerseys boast increased elasticity and improved resiliency, along with moisture-absorbency technology. Reebok Canada says the collaboration process with the CFL took two years.

“The on field jerseys were developed to improve the player experience, while the new premier jerseys will bring the fans closer to the game”, said Stewart Clark, who is the marketing director at Reebok Canada. Reebok also announced each team’s new jersey will have “design updates,” presumably to logos and colour schemes.

The Toronto Argonauts and Hamilton Tiger-Cats also announced Wednesday the team will be unveiling its new jerseys on May 1.

The CFL and Reebok’s announcement follows Nike unveiling its new line of NFL jerseys last week. Reebok was the official apparel provider of the NFL for a decade until it was announced in October 2010 the league had signed a five-year deal with Nike worth a reported US$35-million a year.

"Making its debut on Wednesday, May 2nd, "

"Although it won't officially make its debut until May 2nd, Lions fans have an opportunity show their pride by pre-ordering their jersey today! "

Awesome that we get to see them as early as the 2nd but am I missing something or did it sound as if they will be the same design just manufactured differently?

Yeah, I got that ik17, it hasn't been unvieled yet. But how does the picture in the link answer the question about black piping or anything else for that matter?

I'm not holding my breath. ether it'll be the same design or it won't be worth ordering a new jersey...especially for me down here in Dixie. It's extra expensive for me to get a jersey shipped to my door down here.
