The Pittsburgh Steelers will wear their all-black Color Rush uniforms during the 2018 regular season in addition to debuting a new throwback jersey at some point.
During a recent interview with Bob Labriola of steelers.com, Steelers team president Art Rooney II announced that the team’s Color Rush uniforms will be worn during the Week 10 Thursday night home game against the Carolina Panthers.
“We like our Color Rush uniforms and we plan to wear them that night until somebody tells us we’re not supposed to do that,” Rooney told Labriola.
Last season the Steelers wore their ‘Color Rush’ uniforms in their Week 11 home night game win over the Tennessee Titans. Additionally, the Steelers wore those monochromatic uniforms with gold numbers during their 2016 Christmas night home game against the Baltimore Ravens. The Steelers also won that game to clinch the AFC North division.
As for the new throwback jerseys the Steelers will debut during the 2018 regular season, Rooney wasn’t ready to divulge what it will look like or what games it will be worn for.
“We’re going to have a new throwback jersey this year, and we’ll have to decide when we’re going to wear that,” said Rooney. “We haven’t decided that yet. That’ll be another piece of the puzzle, and we’ll look closer at the schedule and make a decision on when. We’ve already decided on the throwback jersey, but we have a planned day to unveil it, so that will be coming up at the end of May.”
Hopefully the Steelers newest throwback jerseys will be their “Batman” style black and gold jerseys from the 1966 season.
