COLLEGE PARK —The College Park Skyhawks, the official NBA G League affiliate of the Atlanta Hawks, released the uniforms for the upcoming 2019-20 season today. The Nike-branded sets give a nod to the Atlanta Hawks classic uniforms, featuring a red, yellow and black colorway.
“The intent of the retro colorway was for it to resonate with our fans and remind them of historic, Atlanta Hawks basketball,” said Atlanta Hawks Chief Marketing Officer Melissa Proctor. “When fans look at the Skyhawks uniforms, we want them to be excited for this new era of basketball in College Park.”
The Skyhawks will wear black at home and white on the road. “College Park,” is embroidered on the front of the home uniforms, while the team’s name, “Skyhawks,” is featured on the away sets. Both the home and away jerseys and shorts use classic Hawks red and yellow as the accent colors.
The shorts of both sets of uniforms include a Skyhawks logo, as well as the logo of the team’s parent club, the Atlanta Hawks. The Skyhawk is a forward-facing bird, representing the determination of the city of College Park and is accompanied by a star on each side, a nod to the talent that continues to rise out of the city and make its mark in the entertainment, music and sports industries.
The Skyhawks tip off the season on the road on Nov. 8, facing off against the Erie BayHawks, the former G League affiliate of the Atlanta Hawks. College Park will take its home court for the first time on Nov. 21 at the Gateway Center Arena @ College Park. Tip-off is slated for the home opener for 7 p.m. (EST) against the Delaware Blue Coats.
