The Green Bay Packers will wear a new style of “historic” alternative jersey for a home game during the 2021 season.
Team President Mark Murphy confirmed that the Packers will soon unveil a third kit, the color green, to be worn at Lambeau Field for the coming season.
“Yes, Bryce, after a year of not wearing alternate uniforms, we’re going to wear a historic third uniform at a home game this season,” Murphy wrote in his monthly question and answer post on Packers.com. “We’re not ready to fully roll out the uniforms yet, but I can say they will include a shade of green. Stay tuned as we get closer to the season, we will reveal these uniforms with a packers.com video and several social media posts. “
The Packers last wore a blue-yellow-brown throwback variant during the 2019 season, but did without an alternative uniform in the 2020 season.
Murphy’s inclusion of the word “historic” pretty much confirms that the third uniform will be based on an earlier look from the franchise.
During the team’s 100th anniversary celebration, Packers.com produced one Infographic with all the team’s previous jerseyswhich may provide a clue or two of what an alternate uniform with a shade of green might look like in 2021.
The Packers have not worn a green retro uniform since 2001.
