ORLANDO MAGIC PRESS RELEASE
ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Orlando Magic unveiled Tuesday new alternate "Stars" uniforms, which will serve as the team's fifth uniform to go along with their home white, road blue, alternate road black pinstripe and the Pride uniforms. The sleeveless, carbon-colored Stars jersey is made from 60 percent recycled materials, designed with lightweight, sweat-wicking technology and engineered mesh in targeted ventilation zones. The "star" of the new jersey remains the ball swoosh placed front and center, serving as the focal point. Along the hem of the shorts, the iconic star also makes a return to the uniform. The jersey and the stars represent teamwork, tradition and toughness -- the pillars of the past and the fight of the future.
The uniforms were developed through a collaborative effort between the team, the NBA and adidas. The uniform pays homage to the Magic's iconic stars that have been part of the team's logo lineage, representing the team's tradition and rich history. The stars were originally featured prominently as replacements for the letter "a" in both "Orlando" and "Magic" within the team's first logo in 1989. The stars have remained a part of the Magic's logo throughout the years, including the team's logo changes in 2000 and 2010.
The Magic will debut the new Stars alternate uniform during the 2016-17 season, wearing them for select games throughout the season.
The new Stars jersey will be available for purchase at a limited-time presale exclusively through the Magic's team app. beginning Saturday, October 1. Each fan who purchases the new Magic Stars jersey during the presale period will also receive two tickets to a Magic preseason game.
