Philadelphia Flyers brings back the “burnt orange” jersey for the 2023-24 NHL Season.

The Philadelphia Flyers have unveiled their new jersey after teasing around the same for a bit too long. The jersey brings back the ‘burnt orange’ shade that the Flyers donned from 1984 to 2007.

The new jersey features wider shoulder and sleeve stripes, single-colored sleeve numbers (black on the home uniform, white on the road uniform), and a black bottom stripe. These visual nods to the 1987 jersey have been already dubbed as “New Era of Orange”. The jersey change is the first in the Flyers’ history since 2010.

“These burnt orange sweaters are one of the most iconic symbols of Flyers hockey. There’s no doubt that this look is known throughout the NHL and uniquely beloved by our fans because it brings to life one of the most important parts of our rebuild — it honors our past while we continue to forge a new path forward”

Keith Jones, Flyers POHO said in a team statement

“Independence Blue Cross is excited about this opportunity to highlight our ongoing support for the Philadelphia Flyers in such a visible way. We are proud of our Philadelphia roots and our service to Southeastern Pennsylvania over the past 85 years. As the hometown health insurer, we are delighted to support the traditions that mean so much to our community, including deepening our relationship with our region’s legendary hometown hockey team”

Gregory C Stevens, Independence Blue Cross CEO and President

The Flyers have also added a home jersey patch – for the first-ever time in Flyers history. The jerseys are branded with the Independence Blue Cross, the leading health insurer in South Pennsylvania.

Independence Blue Cross will place its logo on the right chest of all Flyers home sweaters, as well as the third alternate jersey. The organization will showcase the logo through team platforms and television broadcasts. Furthermore, Independence Blue Cross will become the presenting sponsor for a social media series on Flyers channels that focuses on nutrition and healthy eating. As part of the deal, the Flyers management will announce special single-game discounts for Independence Blue Cross members at a later date. Also Read: Barcelona Completes Gavi La Liga Registration
