Spurs unveil a new alternate shirt for the new season and fans are reacting strongly.
SAN ANTONIO — The San Antonio Spurs will celebrate their 50th anniversary in San Antonio during the 2022-23 season and to celebrate, the team unveiled a new statement jersey.
The uniform features modern designs inspired by traditional Mexican serapes and saddle blankets. It also features the traditional team colors and the new “SATX” logo on the chest for the city and state the team plays in: San Antonio, Texas.
Spurs will wear the Statement Edition uniforms for select home and road games in future seasons. It also features new team partner Self Financial, a patch credit-creating fintech company that debuted at Summer League 2022.
“Our new Statement Edition uniform embodies the evolution of our team’s roots while celebrating fans across the region,” said Becky Kimbro, VP of Brand Engagement for Spurs Sports & Entertainment. “Through the intricate serape pattern, we blend our 50-year heritage with our vibrant culture that we celebrate on and off the pitch.”
Once the new jersey was revealed, the fan base chimed in and mixed reviews from the Silver and Black faithful.
Here’s a sampling of fan reaction to the new statement uniforms:
This jersey is the fourth the team will wear next season. A fifth will be announced later this year.
