The Jacksonville Jaguars Nike Elite 51 Uniform design for the 2013 NFL season is a head-to-toe integrated system of dress with an aggressive, modern design that honors the team’s military fan base and moves the team into a new era.
The Jacksonville Jaguars rebirth and uniform redesign center around the concept of the American Dream and realizing success through hard work, ingenuity, and leadership – ideals that Jaguars Owner Shahid Khan is working to instill throughout the entire organization. Like Nike’s co-founder Bill Bowerman, Khan embodies a pioneering innovative spirit while still staying true to his humble beginnings.
The Jaguars are the only team in the league to honor their fans in a permanent position on the front of the jersey – a proud salute to their hard working military fan base with a patch placed directly over the heart.
Designed and engineered from the inside out, the NFL Nike Elite 51 uniform focuses on creating a system where the baselayer, padding, jersey and pant work in concert. Lightweight padding is also integrated directly into the crucial “hit zones” in the baselayer. New innovations include integrating Flywire technology into the neckline to reduce weight and provide lockdown fit over pads, increasing sleeve articulation for better range of motion, and integrating new four-way stretch fabrication to provide a streamlined shrink-wrap fit.
The Jaguars new fan jerseys are scheduled to be on sale on April 25th.
