The Saskatchewan Roughriders unveiled their new team jerseys today, May 12.

Sports apparel giant adidas took over the design of CFL jerseys, and the Riders’ uniforms underwent some significant changes.

The black trim around the numbers on the jerseys has been removed, giving the jerseys a simpler, one-colour look. The word “Saskatchewan” above the number on the front of the jersey has been bumped up in size, as the Riders said they want to proudly display their home province.

The jersey’s shoulders now feature a new Riders logo, while the numbers have been removed. The small Roughriders logo below the numbers on the back of the jersey has also been removed.

The collar has a white stripe bordered by green on the home jerseys, and a green stripe bordered by white on the away jerseys. The bottom of the collar at the neck now displays the new CFL logo.

The uniform’s pants now feature four stripes on the left leg, one for each of the Roughriders Grey Cup championships.

The team’s retro jerseys have also received minimal changes with the elimination of shoulder numbers, wider shoulder stripes and the retro logo on the sleeve. Those jerseys will be worn for special occasions.
