Toronto Raptors Drop New Look Uniforms for the 2020-2021 Season
The Toronto Raptors will sport some fire new uniforms next season.
Whenever next season will be that is.
On Thursday, the team unveiled their fresh new threads for the 2020-2021 season. The new design is similar to that of the previous year, with bolder colours and “Raptors” written across the chest. The new jerseys will come in three different colours: red, white, and black.
“Uniforms do matter to players. Our team made the choice to wear the Earned jerseys during the 2019 Finals, for example,” Raptors President Masai Ujiri said. “We want to give our players – and our fans – jerseys they’re proud to wear not just because they say Raptors on the front, not just because they’re a symbol of our city and country, but because they also look great. I think that’s what we’ve achieved with these.”

The concept for the new jerseys comes from a collaborative project carried out between MLSE and NIKE.
“As we began to think about the decade ahead, we aimed to create uniforms that not only reflected our franchise’s historic accomplishment in 2019 but also inspired the pursuit of our next championship,” MLSE Chief Marketing Officer Shannon Hosford said. “Our goal was to continue to evolve our ‘We The North’ Raptors brand identity highlighting our key chevron design, which is synonymous with the North and our championship, while also providing our fans with some added swagger while they show their support.”
The Sun Life logo will remain on the left shoulder of each jersey for the fourth consecutive season.
