Florida to unveil new Jumpman uniforms

The Florida Gators will unveil their brand new Jordan Brand uniforms for the first time in an event held at World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia on July 17th.

The Gators are just the fourth college football program (North Carolina, Michigan, Oklahoma, Florida) to be backed by the Jumpman brand. The brand moved into football with the addition of Michigan in 2016. Michael Jordan has been very hands on with his alma mater of North Carolina, which also sports the Jumpman logo on its football and basketball uniforms. Florida is the first program in the Southeastern Conference to sport the brand, which also extends to the men’s and women’s basketball programs.

The event is free to the public and will begin at 7 p.m. Dan Mullen and the Gators will be in Atlanta on the 17th for SEC Media Days, which starts Monday the 16th. The event Tuesday night will be free to the public. The men’s and women’s basketball uniforms will not be revealed on Tuesday, rather at a later date close to their respective seasons.

Other than the Jumpman replacing the standard Nike logo there isn’t expected to be any significant changes to Florida’s uniform sets. The white helmets are expected to see a minor change to have the logos on either side match, rather than the script Gators and speed F that the team has sported the past two seasons.

A South Florida native, Nick developed a passion for all things sports at a very young age. His love for baseball was solidified when he saw Al Leiter’s no-hitter for the Marlins live in May of 1996. He was able to play baseball in college but quickly realized there isn’t much of a market for short, slow outfielders that hit around the Mendoza line. Wanting to continue with sports in some capacity he studied journalism at the University of Central Florida. Nick got his first start in the business as an intern for a website covering all things related to the NFL draft before spending two seasons covering the Florida football team at Bleacher Report. That job led him to GatorCountry. When he isn’t covering Gator sports, Nick enjoys hitting way too many shots on the golf course, attempting to keep up with his favorite t.v. shows and watching the Heat, Dolphins and Marlins.
