Sixers Reveal City Edition Uniforms for 2020-21 Season
The Sixers revealed their new City Edition Uniform today, which was inspired and designed in collaboration by Ben Simmons.
The team released the new scheme of a black, red white and blue jersey with a spotlight of the rich history of Philadelphia.
“Growing up in Australia, I always associated the 76ers with the black uniform that Allen Iverson wore in the early 2000s. I’m a lover of both fashion and basketball, so to combine the two and be part of the design process for the first black 76ers uniform in over a decade was amazing,” Simmons said in a press release. “I’m grateful the team included me from the jump and can’t wait to wear this jersey next season.”
The uniform showcases Boathouse Row, an iconic U.S. Historic National Landmark that runs along the Schuylkill River, just west of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
“We love telling stories through the 76ers brand, specifically of our great city and always honoring our history,” Philadelphia 76ers President Chris Heck said in a press release. “This year, we celebrate our city edition uniform by blending the old and the new specifically for the greatest fans in the world to enjoy.”
The 76ers’ 2020-21 City Edition uniform will be available for purchase on Thursday, Dec. 3.
