The Duke University Football program revealed its new team jerseys for the 2014-15 season on Monday July 14. The new Duke Football jerseys will be worn beginning this upcoming season.
The team will have the usual white, blue, and alternate black uniforms with a few differences in color schemes and style. The new look can be seen here. The video in the link takes a look back at previous Duke football uniforms and provides a brief overview of past jerseys before showing current players modelling the new uniforms for this season.
The new uniforms were designed by Nike, an official sponsor of Duke University Athletics. Nike is currently in a 10-year partnership with Duke Athletics that began during the 2008-2009 school year. All of the sports programs at Duke use Nike uniforms, equipment, apparel, and footwear.
Duke Football is coming off of a very successful 2013 season where the team finished 10-4 (6-2 in the ACC) and made it’s second straight bowl game appearance, competing against Texas A&M in the 2014 Chick-fil-A bowl last season. Duke will be looking to improve on it’s success last year and are contenders for the ACC Coastal Division for the upcoming season. The new updated uniforms will add to the excitement building for the 2014-2015 season.
In addition, the university has already started with major renovations to improve Wallace Wade Stadium and add additional seating and possibly new seats for fans to enjoy the football team when they play their home games on Duke University’s campus. The proposed stadium renovations can be seen here. These renovations are also part of a larger plan to expand multiple athletic facilities on a new state-of-the-art athletic campus.
