The New York Guardians unveiled the threads they’ll wear when they take the field on Feb. 9. Minicamp begins later this week.
New York’s new form of football hope unveiled their debut look this week, giving fans a sign of what’s to come when they take the field later this week.
The New York Guardians, along with the rest of their XFL counterparts. unveiled their uniforms for the league’s upcoming inaugural season on Tuesday night. New York’s new clothes were revealed at a team event in Waldwick, NJ.
Their new uniforms include a home and away set, whose jersey and pant sets are black and gray respectively. Red striping adorns the pants and shoulders, outlined in inverse colors on each jersey. The gray-on-black and black-on-white inversion also carries over to the numbers. Topping things off is a black helmet featuring an oversized version of the team’s logo, meant to resemble a gargoyle. The emblem also appears on each jersey’s sleeve.
“These striking uniforms embody the Guardians’ bold spirit and never-back-down mentality,” said Guardians President, Janet Duch in a team statement. “Our entire organization is eagerly awaiting our first home game on February 9 at MetLife Stadium when our team will take the field in this battle-ready armor.”
On hand to model the uniforms were quarterback Matt McGloin and receiver DeAngelo Yancey. The pair were each added to the Guardians’ inaugural roster earlier this fall, with Yancey becoming the team’s first selection in the XFL Draft.
Replica jerseys are available for purchase at the store on the XFL’s official website. Fans will be able to customize the jerseys on gamedays at XFL stadiums.
Waldwick will also be the site for Guardians’ minicamp, which will begin on Thursday afternoon. Practices will be held at Superdome Sports and players will speak afterward, along with head coach/general manager Kevin Gilbride. The team will also practice open to select fans at West Point Military Academy, home of Army football, on Dec. 14 and 15.
Toward the end of minicamp, the Guardians will host media and season ticket holders at MetLife Stadium on Dec. 17 in an event labeled “An Evening With Oliver Luck”. The XFL commissioner will be on hand to update listeners on the state of the league and its new developments. Labeled as a town hall, the event will be hosted by ESPN’s Dianna Russini.
