The Philadelphia 76ers finally returned to the basketball court last night, beating the Washington Wizards…
The Philadelphia 76ers revealed the latest version of their City Edition Uniforms for the 2023-24 season in a series of posts on social media today.
Philadelphia 76ers 2023-24 City Edition Uniforms
Honestly I don’t really hate the uniforms but that’s only because I’m a big fan of the navy blue and red color combination that we also saw a few years ago with the “Phila Spectrum” jerseys.
Regardless, my feelings towards the 76ers right now are pretty much next to nothing thanks to James Harden and Daryl Morey so my standards are incredibly low. Basically, I’ll take anything as long as those two aren’t being mentioned.
With this year’s uniforms, we’re back with the “City of Brotherly Love” logo across the front of the jersey which I never liked. I didn’t like the all white and red text version last year, and this year with the updated text that is supposed to be inspired by the Reading Terminal Market definitely leaves a lot to be desired.
Same jerseys with updated colors and text? Sounds like the 76ers’ roster heading into this season, right?
The entire reveal, much like everything the Philadelphia 76ers do these days, is pretty uninspiring.
Let’s just hope the updated court design to go with the City Edition Uniforms can bring everything together but honestly at this point, I wouldn’t hold your breath.
From the Philadelphia 76ers 2023-24 City Edition Uniform Press Release
The event shined a light on Reading Terminal Market – the inspiration for this season’s City Edition jersey – Philadelphia’s most-visited tourist site and home to 80-plus family-owned small businesses. Recognized as a National Historic Landmark, the Market has been a staple as a diverse and welcoming culinary hub within the City of Brotherly Love for 130 years, having first opened its doors in 1893.
Celebrating Reading Terminal Market will be a theme throughout the upcoming season, as the 76ers will support a number of small, local businesses from Reading Terminal Market as part of their Spirit of Small Business program, presented by Fulton Bank. This initiative is designed to combat the larger systemic issue of equal access for the small business community across Greater Philadelphia. Each 76ers’ gameday, the team will promote a local small business on its social and digital platforms, giving the business visibility to millions of fans who enjoy 76ers basketball across the world. More details about the 2023-24 Spirit of Small Business program recipients will be provided at a later date.
