Pacers unveil 2023-24 City Edition uniforms
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Indiana Pacers unveiled their Nike 2023-24 City Edition uniforms on Thursday.
The team shared photos of the new look on social media:
The team says the jersey’s colors “play off the Pacers traditional Blue & Gold but bring a flair of consistent with the spirit of a city that is youthful, full of energy, and ready for its next chapter.”
“Indy is ready to show off its pop for the NBA and the world with a fierceness and a boldness worthy of the vibrant, diverse place we have created, and that’s the excitement that really comes through in this year’s Nike NBA 23-24 City Edition Uniforms,” Pacers Sports and Entertainment President & Chief Commercial Officer Todd Taylor said in a news release.
“What surprises many people when they first visit Indy is the richness of our culture and the quiet confidence of our people, but the days of sneaking up on people are long gone. Indy has arrived, and these jerseys tell that story.”
This year’s uniforms are “a visual tribute to the diversity, vibrancy, and culture for which Indy has quickly become known,” according to the news release:
- The “INDY” wordmark was created specifically for this uniform by the team’s own internal talent, a member of the Indiana Pacers design team, and can’t be found anywhere outside of the team.
- Using brighter versions of the Pacers’ iconic Blue & Gold on solid black reflects the Indy art scene and the youth and talent of our players.
- Indy’s incredible murals throughout the city inspired the spray paint splatter, paying homage to the artists whose work adds different perspectives to the city’s landscape.
