New York Liberty Reveal New Uniforms
Team Bringing Back Black Uniforms Worn During Inaugural Season
NEW YORK, NY – April 15, 2014 – The New York Liberty unveiled new uniforms during last night’s WNBA Draft that the team will wear in the upcoming 2014 season when they return to the transformed Madison Square Garden. The new Liberty uniform is both an evolution of previous designs and a nod to the first-ever uniform worn by the team from 1997 through 2002.
Similar to the team’s inaugural uniforms, the new Liberty away uniform features black as the prominent color with accents in seafoam, orange and blue. The white home jersey has black accents along the sides as opposed to the blue, which previously appeared on the jersey from 2003 through 2013.
The Liberty’s new jersey, including authentic and replica versions, can be pre-ordered online at www.NYLiberty.com and will be available at Madison Square Garden starting May 8, when the Liberty take on the Connecticut Sun in the preseason home opener.
New York opens regular season action against Connecticut on Friday, May 16 at 7 p.m. at Mohegan Sun Arena. The Liberty will then make their long awaited return to Madison Square Garden to host the Chicago Sky on Opening at 3 p.m., highlighted by music, prizes, guest appearances, a talent competition for local groups and basketball contests on the Liberty sport court.
Liberty season ticket packages and individual tickets are available at NYLiberty.com.
