Calgary’s new home (White) and away (Red) uniforms feature a streamlined look with red sublimation on the sides of the home jerseys and shorts and Black sublimation on the road set. The Roughnecks prevalent brand is continued in the new shoulder crest featuring an Oil Derrick with a prominent ‘R’.
The uniforms produced by Reebok feature several improvements to the jerseys, including using a new, lightweight material and slimmer design to enhance player movement.
“Reebok has revolutionized the NLL jerseys by introducing a lacrosse specific design and developing new materials to maximize performance”, said Steve Robaire, Head of Reebok Lacrosse. “The new NLL jersey has an ergonomic shape design to enhance range of motion and reduce drag. The material used for the NLL jersey is lightweight while offering four-way stretch as well as advances in abrasion resistance and wicking properties.”
The Roughnecks new away uniforms make their debut at the Air Canada Centre on Sunday, January 8 against the Toronto Rock, the defending 2011 NLL Champions. The season opener will be broadcast live on TSN starting at 4:00 p.m. MT.
Calgary hosts the Colorado Mammoth at the Scotiabank Saddledome for their home opener on Saturday, January 21 at 7:00 p.m.
