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.
