North Carolina University unveils Nike football uniforms

Apr '13
The University of North Carolina, together with Nike, unveiled a new collection of football uniform designs and colors for the 2013 season at today’s Spring Game.

The new uniforms feature Nike Pro Combat technology and the design inspiration speaks to Tar Heel football history. Overall, the updated look reflects the program’s progressive outlook on the game of football.

The Tar Heels will have three jersey options available in 2013, including a Carolina blue top with black numbers, a white jersey with black numbers and a black jersey with Carolina blue numbers. Carolina has three pant options including Carolina blue, white and black.

Nike’s design team worked closely with Tar Heel coaches and student athletes to understand their unique approach to the game, taking inspiration from the Ram mascot, who has appeared with painted blue horns at every game since the early 1920s.

The Carolina blue top and white pant will continue as the traditional home uniform. The away uniform is a streamlined look in all white, and the program chose to let the iconic Carolina Blue stand out on an all-black alternate uniform.

A new customized font and typeface also serves a functional purpose as they are easier to read and more visible downfield. The stripes on the uniform pant and shoulders reflect the lines of ram horns.

UNC head football coach Larry Fedora reminds his athletes to be “smart, fast and physical” on every play. This mantra is embroidered on the back neckline of the jersey to reinforce Coach’s message to the athletes as they suit up before each game.

“Our kids are excited about the new uniforms,” said Fedora. “When they saw them for the first time they got fired up about wearing them this year. We wanted to design a uniform that connected our team to The Tar Pit, our name for the student section.”

The fully integrated uniform system incorporates the latest in performance innovation. The athlete’s baselayer works in concert with his entire uniform – true innovation from the inside out. Lightweight padding is integrated directly into crucial “hit zones” in the baselayer.

Performance features include integrated Flywire technology in the neckline for reduced weight and lockdown fit over pads. Additionally, increased sleeve articulation provides better range of motion, and four-way stretch fabrication delivers a streamlined shrink-wrap fit. The design enables speed without compromise.

The Tar Heels will wear the all-black uniforms against Miami on Thursday, Oct. 17, at Kenan Stadium.
