Jaguars black uniform to debut vs. Bears

Phil Sears-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

After almost two decades of using teal as the color of their primary home uniforms, the Jacksonville Jaguars will switch to black uniforms beginning Oct. 7 against the Chicago Bears. They will wear teal for the final time Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The teal era is over in Jacksonville. The Jaguars will begin wearing black home uniforms starting with the Oct. 7 matchup with the Chicago Bears, meaning Sunday's matchup is the final time teal will be the color of Jacksonville's primary home uniforms.

Owner Shad Khan has mentioned that the team would be switching to black as its main home jersey color since shortly after purchasing the team, but he unveiled the timeline for the switch in a press release:

"After this Sunday's game, we will wear black as our primary jersey and teal will be reserved for special occasions as our alternate jersey. Teal will continue to be a part of our uniform and our logo, but on the field our identity will grow in black jerseys."

The final game in the old uniforms will be part of a Jaguars alumni weekend honoring former players such as Fred Taylor. Teal has been the primary color of Jacksonville's regular home uniforms since the club's inception in 1995.
