KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Days after teasing a new uniform, the Kansas City Royals released the first look of the newest threads the team will be wearing.
On Twitter, the team called the uniforms “An ode to the past. A nod to the future.”
The team will wear new home and road primary and alternates with an updated look to the fonts, numbers and colors.
“We’re excited to introduce to our fans, our new uniform set for the 2022 season,” said Royals Vice President/Major League Team Operations Jeff Davenport. “These updates reflect fresh variations on our brand esthetic, that generations of Royals fans have come to identify with, while also offering newer classic looks to the overall uniform set. We see these as an ode to the traditions of the past yet refined and updated for inspiration of what’s to come.”
The road game uniforms will have an updated “Kansas City” across the chest in a different font and will remove the piping around the name and numbers.
Home uniforms will also update the piping around the letters and numbers.
Fans looking to buy the uniform can find it at the team store on Black Friday starting at 8 a.m. until Dec. 3.
Those who can’t make it in person can pre-order a jersey for delivery in February.
