UK Athletics unveils new uniforms, secondary wildcat logo

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - While Commonwealth Stadium has undergone a makeover now the players will sport a brand new look coming up this season.

University of Kentucky Athletics on Friday unveiled its updated uniforms in conjunction with long-time partner Nike.

The football team will have three brand new jersey variants to chose from -- blue, white and an alternate gray matte.

A new wildcat logo also debuted, and can be seen on the hip of the football pants.

The men's basketball team will also be sporting a new alternate blue jersey later this month.

UK Athletics director Mitch Barnhart says it has been an 18-month process working with Nike and the student athletes to get the look right.

"They're the best in the world at marketing and they tried to some find things that are a little bit timeless," he said. "They're going to give us the chance to work into the future for a good bit. It's been a long process and we really appreciate their efforts."

Barnhart says the men's basketball shooting shirt will debut Saturday; the new jersey will be worn on the 13th.

The football team will debut the new uniforms in the fall.
