The Charlotte Hornets unveiled new alternate uniforms on Thursday night. The “Pride” uniforms are black with a teal outline and feature sleeves, a V-neck collar and the words “Buzz City” across the chest area.
“The Pride uniform is designated to celebrate something local to a team or region, and it was obvious to us that it needed to commemorate Buzz City,” Hornets Sports & Entertainment President & COO Fred Whitfield said in a news release. “Buzz City is about the enthusiasm that our fans have for our team and our city, and this uniform allows us to put that feeling into a physical banner that our players display.”
The franchise, which was previously known as the Bobcats, unveiled a new logo last season as part of a rebrand.
