The Sacramento Kings will be donning baby blue “Sactown” uniforms for select games this season as a nod to the colors worn during their inaugural season.
The Kings brought back the original baby blue retros for their final game at Sleep Train Arena during the 2015-16 season and have since worn remixed versions of that jersey with updated logos. That theme will continue in 2018-19 with the Kings’ newly unveiled “Sactown” City Edition uniforms.
Per the official press release:
“For the 2018-19 season, the City Edition blends elements of the team’s connection to Sacramento with “Sactown” printed on the front, a tribute to the unmatched pride and loyalty of Kings fans and the importance this city plays in the franchise. Granite striping follows the contours of the jersey outlining the retro red trim. The white accent blocking along the shoulders of the uniform, modernize the team’s retro look.”
“The team’s logo on the shorts has also been updated to the secondary lion logo which embodies the Kings legendary fan base, creating the greatest home court advantage in all of sports and this mark represents their roar.”
In addition to the new uniforms, the Kings will also play on a similarly designed court for select games, starting with Sacramento’s November 19th matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder. In total, the “Sactown” City Edition uniforms will be worn by DeAaron Fox, Buddy Hield and co. for eight games this season at Golden 1 Center.
