The Cardinals now have their “Color Rush” uniform. And no, it is not yellow.
This season, with all 32 teams now with the “Color Rush” alternate jersey for use in conjunction with “Thursday Night Football,” the Cardinals have a new black jersey with red numbers.
The one caveat: Because the Cardinals are in San Francisco for their Thursday game, and the 49ers also have a black uniform, the Cardinals will be one of a handful of teams that will not be wearing their “Color Rush” jerseys in a game this season. The Cards will wear their normal white-on-white road uniforms for that game.
The Texans (at the Patriots) and the Falcons (at the Buccaneers) also will not be wearing their new jerseys this season because of color conflict.
There are no other opportunities to wear the jersey, with the “Color Rush” uniforms exclusive to the “Thursday Night Football” games in order to increase awareness of the series.
Regardless, the jersey will be available for purchase at the Cardinals’ team shop at University of Phoenix Stadium, the team’s online store, local Dick’s Sporting Goods stores and the Nike store in north Scottsdale.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from “Color Rush” jersey sales across the league go to the NFL Foundation, benefitting youth football and other charitable efforts.
