River Dragons Unveil 2020-21 Jersey Set
Columbus, GA - The Columbus River Dragons are proud to unveil the team's uniform set for the 2020-21 season (start date TBD).
The jersey set this year will feature four distinct looks, each bringing something unique to the table and each being worn depending on the type of game and opponent.
Keepin' It Teal
The first jersey we're showing off is our teals which make a return to the rotation this season and due to popular demand will be our first jersey we wear regularly at home and on the road! Our teal look will be worn at home as an alternate uniform and will be our default road jersey for games inside the division. The teal design will change slightly in year two with the same sash lettering design on the front, only this year the text will read "DRAGONS" instead of "COLUMBUS". Don't fret though, our "COLUMBUS" moniker isn't going away.
Our next jersey will only be worn for road games outside of the division, and most times we go out of the division we brave the harsh cold of the northeast. So we'll be taking that snowy cold to heart with our new white jersey design! We're keeping "COLUMBUS" in our threads, only this year it appears on our out-of-division road white jerseys for the 20-21 season. This sash design varies slightly from the one that appeared on the teal jerseys, featuring a teal outline effect on the individual letters as opposed to last season's white outline.
Dragon Scale Red
Now for our first brand new look of the 2020-21 season. A lot of people asked "Why is the Dragon in the logo red when the team uses a grey or teal jersey?" Well, ask no longer as this season we'll be playing in red sweaters for most home games in the 20-21 season! With our secondary logo being utilized on the front to show off our namesake mascot this is an entirely unique look compared to anything worn by the team in our inaugural season. Our traditional logo with word mark is still on these jerseys displayed prominently on both shoulders outlined with our popular teal accents.
A Home Opening Surprise
While we're ready to reveal three of our jerseys for the 20-21 season, we're not quite ready to unveil our fourth and final jersey in the set. All that we can say about this jersey is its debut will be made in our home opener at the Civic Center. After that, these mystery threads will only be used at home for special occasions and against opponents that traditionally wear red. We feel bad about continuing to keep fans in the dark on these jerseys; but we believe once the season is upon us, you'll love these jerseys while celebrating FPHL hockey's return to play in 2020-21!
While that's all for the new jerseys this season, some of you might be wondering about our gray jersey design. While this look will not feature in our 20-21 rotation it is not gone completely, more on hiatus for a season. However, you still have time to get a gray jersey before they take the year off if you act quickly!
