The USFL’s Philadelphia Stars unveil horrifically bland new uniforms
Earlier today, the Philadelphia Stars of the revived USFL unveiled their uniform for the 2022 season. The Stars previously played in Philadelphia during the league’s original run for two seasons before moving to Baltimore.
Philadelphia’s updated design is very similar to their old unis but has been tweaked a bit for the modern era. Here’s a quick look for comparison.

The new jerseys removed the bulky stripes on the sleeves while adding two yellow stripes at the bottom of the home jersey, which continue onto the side panels of the pants.
Philadelphia also added a yellow collar on their home uniform, and a red one on their away jerseys. The most significant modification was the Stars switched their previously gold helmets to match the rest of the uniform’s bright yellow look.
It’s not horrible, but the look seems like it came straight from a generic expansion team in Madden 22. The helmet is cool, but everything else is exceptionally bland. For a team with a cool logo and name, the end result leaves so much to be desired. But this is what you get when you try to steal the Phillies’ tagline.
Training camp starts for the spring football league on March 21st, with the entirety of the season taking place in Birmingham, Alabama.
