This season is shaping up as the most diversified in terms of uniforms and colors in Denver Broncos history.
Teams are allowed to wear their alternate (third) jersey a max of three times, one in preseason and two in the regular season. That’s good news for Bronco fans who can’t get enough orange, as the locals will wear it three times out of the 10 regular and preseason home games.
But then, in addition to the blue that marks the standard Bronco uniform, Denver will dip back, way back, in time and wear the Broncos’ original 1960 uniform when the Broncos host the Boston (for that game, Boston) Patriots in one of the American Football League matchups this year. That means gold (really, a mustard yellow) home jersey, seal brown pants and helmet, no logo, just a uniform number of the helmet, and of course the legendary, infamous vertically striped gold and brown socks.
The Patriots will also be wearing their 1960’s vintage uniforms as well, featuring their original logo and red, white and blue.
The end zones will boast a 1960’s diamond-look as well, in the opinion of many one of the classiest looking end zone treatments in pro football history.
There will be a few other elements to highlight that rematch of the first game in AFL history, with those details to come out as we get a bit closer to the game.
This will truly be a step back into history at INVESCO Field at Mile High.
