The Philadelphia Flyers have rotated between many jersey ideas throughout their 50+ years of existence, and fans will now be able to pick up a new jersey ahead of the 2020-21 NHL season.
On Monday, the team unveiled their new Adidas Reverse Retro ADIZERO jersey for the 2020-21 season. The league-wide program involves a Reverse Retro jersey for all 31 teams, the first such program in National Hockey League history, and will see the Flyers wear the jersey at select games during the 2021 season.

The Reverse Retro jersey program is the result of a two-year effort by Adidas to examine each team’s jersey history and team colors, remixing them to create something new and never seen before. The Flyers’ jersey will be orange with a solid black from the shoulders down the arms, a mixture of past ideas.
“Philly fans have clamored to bring back the burnt orange color associated with our teams of the 90s,” said Mark Zarthar, Flyers Senior Vice President of Marketing. “Those were special years for our franchise. The Reverse Retro jersey celebrates this era of Flyers history while simultaneously looking to a bright future, presenting a fresh look at a classic design.”
Fans can purchase the jersey beginning December 1.
After seeing many different ideas throughout my life, I am a major fan of the new alternate jersey for the team. It mixes the past with the current and even brings some new and unique ideas for not only the Flyers, but other teams in the NHL. I can definitely see this jersey being purchased as gifts this holiday season!
The Flyers are reportedly scheduled to begin training camp in December ahead of a regular season start date of January 1, 2021.
