Checkers' new uniforms

Checkers' new uniforms

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Wednesday at the Charlotte Checkers offices in the Epicenter, Chief Operating Officer Tera Black unveiled new jerseys for the team.

They don't look too different from the old ones, some very subtle changes starting with the laces on the neck line on the front of the jersey.

Both the red and white have black stripes on them. The Carolina Hurricanes only have white stripes on their red uniforms, but black is something the Checkers wanted to keep and did so on their red ones.

The new unis are also lighter than the old ones so it's better for the players.

The Canes just changed their jerseys this off season so the Checkers wanted to stay in line with their parent team.
