The 10th anniversary season is approaching and the Ottawa REDBLACKS of the Canadian Football League are ready to debut in new home jerseys.

The REDBLACKS unveiled the new uniforms on Tuesday, June 4 on their website and social media channels. Originally scheduled for release sometime in May, the launch was pushed to June, less than two weeks before the first home game on June 13.

The most noticeable change in the new set are the stripes running across each shoulder. A wide white stripe is flanked by two narrower red stripes, taking the place typically occupied by TV numbers. The REDBLACKS‘ secondary logo-minus the sawblade from their Primary Logo-sits on each sleeve.

„We are thrilled to kick off our 10th anniversary season with the unveiling of these new uniforms to RNation,“ said REDBLACKS President Adrian Sciarra on the team’s website. „Our new home jersey pays homage to the proud football history in the nation’s capital while offering a modernized look that we can’t wait to showcase under the lights of TD Place.“

The new jersey features the same name and number fonts as the previous home jersey. The numbers on the front and back are white with red outlines, while the names on the back are solid white. „REDBLACKS“ is emblazoned across the chest. Above it, on the right side of the jersey, is the team’s 10-year anniversary logo.

The new jersey comes with a new helmet, reminiscent of a Retro Helmet first introduced in 2022. The helmet features the same stripes as the shoulders of the jersey and the R logo on each side. Overall, it bears a strong resemblance to the old Ottawa Rough Riders franchise.

„It was important for us to get it right and develop something that looks good for the fans and appeals to the players,“ said Drew McCormick, REDBLACKS equipment manager. „We also wanted to find something that fits in terms of stitching and stretchability and is comfortable over a pair of shoulder pads.“

The pants and socks shown with the jersey in the announcement photos on Tuesday were both all black. The pants have a white R logo on the right hip.

The REDBLACKS will wear their new black jerseys for six of their nine home games during the 2024 CFL regular season at TD Place, starting with their first home game on Thursday, June 13 against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. For the other three home games, they will wear their red alternate jerseys.

Reports emerged in May 2023 indicating that only one of the three REDBLACKS jerseys would be revamped in time for the 2024 season. Therefore, it is not expected for any changes to Ottawa’s white away jersey or red alternate jerseys in the near future.
