New Orleans VooDoo Unveil New Uniforms
The team will keep its solid purple helmets with black facemasks and the iconic VooDoo logo on each side. The changes come in the jerseys and the pants.
The home jerseys will be black with red numbers outlined in purple. The words "New Orleans VooDoo" appear on the chest, with the jersey numbers on the tops of the shoulders. Each shoulder features a strip of red with a band of gold running all the way around the chest. The VooDoo logo appears on the side of each shoulder, and each sleeve is banded in purple. The neck also sports a purple band.
The black jerseys are a departure from the team's former purple home uniforms.
The home pants are also black and have a red stripe outlined in purple running down each side to the knee.
The road jerseys follow the same basic pattern, except that they are white, instead of black, and the band running all the way around the chest is purple, instead of gold.
The road pants are purple, and the red stripe on each side is outlined in black.
More photos of the new uniforms are available on the VooDoo's website.
New Orleans opens its 2012 season at home in the Graveyard on March 18 against the Philadelphia Soul at 4 p.m. ET, 3 p.m. New Orleans time.
