The team doesn't currently have plans to wear the uniform for any specific game, but it will be available throughout the season.

The copper color is designed to honor the state of Arizona's history as a significant copper-producing state. The Sun Devils will wear all-white gloves and cleats with the new uniform.

Redshirt junior cornerback Lloyd Carrington on the uniform, from the team's website:

“I love the new uniforms because they provide a mixture of both traditional and modern styles. They allow us to have swag with a revolutionized twist, while maintaining a prideful connection with the Sun Devil fans from the past, present and future.”​ 

Arizona State opens the season Aug. 28 against Weber State.
