“The 1950s were one of the most interesting times in our organization’s rich history, creating the bridge between two of the greatest eras in pro football,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “With the NFL growing rapidly, this time period set the stage for the construction of Lambeau Field and for the team’s success in the 1960s and beyond. We hope our fans enjoy celebrating our history with this new alternate uniform.”
The new collection is available for fans to buy in the Packers Pro Shop. T-shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, hats and more gear with the new color scheme are available.
As part of the NFL’s third jersey program, teams can wear a third jersey for up to three games per season over a five-year period. The team’s previous third jersey, which was worn from 2015-19, was a recreation of the Packers’ uniform from the 1940s.
