Charlottesville, Va. — The Virginia football program today announced new uniform combinations the Cavaliers will wear this season. The new designs include a blue jersey/white pant ensemble for home games, an alternative orange/white combination for home games, and an all-white kit for road contests.
Redesigned helmets include three center stripes and player numbers on the left side of the helmet.
First-year coach Bronco Mendenhall said the design and symbols reflect the University and the Cavalier program’s history.
“I love the idea of a football team and a football program representing an institution through how they play, but also how they look,” Mendenhall said. “What we wear I hope connects eras, but also the community to the eras where we can acknowledge the past but also look forward to a really, really bright future.”
