Flyers’ Fiasco: Pointless Organizational Decision Leaves Fans Roasting the Team

NHL teams regularly use a variety of tactics to boost their revenue. One such tactic entails adding a third jersey or changing their primary jerseys.

People are baffled by the Philadelphia Flyers’ most recent shift, though. For the upcoming season, the Flyers intend to switch up their uniforms. Well….Sort of…

Fans of the Flyers may exhale easily. The changes being made are not significant but rather subtle. The primary change is a little deepening of the team’s current orange color pattern on the sweaters.

The Philadelphia Flyers disclosed the following in a message posted on social media:

“We are thrilled to announce that the Flyers will be refreshing their primary uniforms and colors. As confirmed by a source from Icethetics, our team is prepared to revamp its identity with an updated color scheme and redesigned home and road uniforms. Our jerseys will revert to a former, darker shade of orange. The newly revised uniforms will draw inspiration from retro design elements, featuring wider sleeve yokes and minimal waist striping.

Hints of this change were already visible when we updated our social media branding with the darker orange shade. For those interested in the specific color details, the transition is from Pantone 172 to Pantone 173.”

Even though the changes are small, they can have a big impact on the fans because some might not like the new appearance. However, as the logo and general design continue to commemorate the team’s history, fans shouldn’t be too angry.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
