In January, the Atlanta Falcons announced that after 17 long years, they’re doing a uniform makeover. Since then, fans have eagerly awaited the big reveal.

Up to this point, there have remarkably been no leaks. Everything has been hearsay and speculation, but that will all end on April 14, 2020 when the team unveils the new uniforms. Matt Tabeek of the Atlanta Falcons website spoke with team owner Arthur Blank and asked him what he thought about the new uniforms, which Blank has obviously seen.
“Well, it’s the first time in 17 years that we’re changing them, which is remarkable to me because I didn’t realize it was quite that long. But I did remember when we first bought the team a couple years later that we did change it – and that was a great change at that time,” Blank said. “I think that this look that fans will feel, experience and see and hopefully wear is one that’s more in keeping with a contemporary look and feel that our fans are looking for – a little more flair.
“I think the level combinations is one of the things that struck me about the tops and bottoms, the way they could be combined and put together provides a lot of options. The players had a lot of input in the uniforms; you know, they have to wear them. Beyond that, they’re young and they’re hip and they get it. They want to wear something that looks good on them. I think the uniforms will look good on them and even better on our fans.”
We still don’t know if there will be any changes to the Falcons’ current logo. Some have speculated yes, but as mentioned above, the Falcons have done an incredible job of keeping things secretive, unlike the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who recently revealed their uniforms after they were essentially leaked a few weeks ago.
We now have a date to look forward to. What do you want out of the new Falcons’ uniforms?
