Photos: Cincinnati, Under Armour Release New Nippert Stadium-Themed Uniforms For Homecoming Game

On Saturday, October 24, Cincinnati will celebrate homecoming against fellow AAC school UConn. The Bearcats will be wearing some new, Nippert Stadium-inspired uniforms for the contest. 

Cincinnati and Under Armour have announced that in honor of Nippert Stadium's 100th anniversary, the team will be wearing new threads dedicated to the venue. Here's more, via the apparel manufacturer:

The historic Nippert Stadium celebrates its 100-year anniversary and grand re-opening in time for the University of Cincinnati’s 2015 Homecoming on October 24. Nippert Stadium, which holds the rank of 2nd oldest playing site and 3rd oldest stadium in college football, is named after former UC football player James Gamble Nippert. The 2015 Bearcats will honor the heritage of their stadium and celebrate its re-opening donning red, custom Under Armour uniforms inspired by the special features of the storied venue.

The triangle design detailed across the jersey, baselayer, gloves and pants is a nod to the iconic triangular architecture of the Richard E. Lindner Athletic Center that overlooks the stadium. A commemorative “100 Year Anniversary” logo was developed and is featured on the baselayer, back of the jersey, as well as a call out down the pant legs, detailing the year in which Nippert Stadium was established (1915.) 

The story continues with a hand-painted helmets designed specifically for this uniform. The main surface of the helmet is painted to evoke the texture of the Lindner Center, featuring the triangular pattern depicted on the jersey. The back of the helmet showcases the James Gamble Nippert Memorial displayed within Nippert Stadium. Each of these helmets are individually hand-painted and numbered.

The jerseys are made with ArmourGrid technology. Here are some photos from the release:
