The Boston Celtics officially have a new set of uniforms.
The Celtics officially unveiled their City Edition uniforms Thursday at North Bennet Street School in Boston. According to a press release, the new jerseys commemorate Springfield, Massachusetts as the birthplace of basketball, as well as New Englanders’ passion and dedication to their work and Boston as a “community of makers.”
These cream-colored sweaters feature dark green necklines, armlines and side panels, the latter of which appear to be connected to a separate wooden side panel. A beveled, dark green ‘Boston’ with wooden edges adorns the chest portion of the jersey, which sits over a statement number of the same color scheme.
The ‘Boston’ design on these jerseys was inspired by the International YMCA Training School (now Springfield College), the place where basketball was born. The two side panels – one wooden and one dark green – come together in a basket weave effect and are joined by a snaffle, used to hold together a peach basket, the very first basketball hoop and the inspiration for the name ‘basketball’. .”
Additionally, the belt buckle on the shorts features a leather basketball design that resembles the first ball used to play basketball, and the national anthem at the bottom of the jersey reads “Springfield, Mass.” 1881′, the place and year basketball was invented. .
The Celtics will wear these uniforms for the first time against the Brooklyn Nets on November 10, the team’s first tournament game of the season. They will wear them 14 more times after that, with the last time coming on April 14 against the Washington Wizards.
These uniforms are available for purchase now starting Thursday and can be found in the ProShop at TD Garden and the Celtics online store.
