Griffins Unveil New Logo and Jerseys

In preparation for the franchise’s twentieth season, the Grand Rapids Griffins unveiled a new logo and jerseys on Tuesday.

As widely expected, the new logo is the team’s former alternate logo, which adorned the red alternate jerseys for the past three seasons. The logo has been recolored to match the team’s new color scheme of red, black, and silver.

It is the first time in team history that the primary logo has been changed and is the first time that blue will not be a part of the team’s identity.

With the new logo comes new jerseys featuring the updated team colors. A white jersey with black shoulders features red, silver, and black stripes on the sleeves, waist, and collarbone. The black jersey includes white, red, and silver stripes.

Both jerseys feature a lace-up collar. One shoulder will have a Detroit Red Wings logo patch while the other will have the team’s 20th Season logo. The white jerseys will include an opposite-color nameplate. The team’s unique number font has been replaced by a block font.

The team will also wear a yet-to-be-unveiled 20th-season alternate jersey on Friday nights, seemingly replacing their Red Wings-styled fourth jersey.
