The new Primeknit uniforms are meant to represent the past and look ahead to the future. Primeknit technology increases durability and abrasion resistance while keeping players cool and increasing their range of motion. The uniforms give athletes the comfort they need to perform to the best of their abilities.
The retro uniform designs pay respect to Hurricane teams of the 80s and 90s that won four national championships. Measurements were taken from the team’s old uniforms to accurately replicate the jersey numbers, stripes and logos.
Additional uniform elements include adizero 5-Star 5.0 cleats and gloves, both featuring the Hurricane mascot, Sebastian the Ibis.
The first uniform combination to be worn (on Saturday, Oct. 8) will combine orange jerseys with white pants. The next set (to be worn on Thursday, Oct. 20) will combine white jersey with orange pants.
