Celtics fans will get a dose of their new alternate uniforms on Wednesday night when they host the Brooklyn Nets the night before Thanksgiving.

“The look of this uniform pays homage to the history of the Celtics brand and provides an exciting new take on one of our most popular alternate jerseys,” said Celtics Chief Marketing Officer Shawn Sullivan.

I would have to agree. Although an informal office poll suggested that the new uniforms might not be a fan favorite, I happen to really like the Celtic lettering and the nod to Boston's Irish immigrant story from the 1850s.

The team says that the new uniforms pay tribute to the city’s rich history. Boston’s City Edition uniform features a solid green base with gold coloring projected on the Boston wordmark, number, and taping – a color scheme reminiscent of the team’s 2006 St. Patrick’s Day uniform. New to the Celtics uniform collection, the Boston wordmark features a unique Celtic font. Additionally, a Celtic knot is displayed on the gold belt buckle, serving as a representation of loyalty and love between the franchise and its passionate fanbase.

The Celtics announced that the new 2019-2020 Nike City Edition Uniform will be worn numerous times throughout the regular season, including a pair of games against the Philadelphia 76ers, and its historic rivalry game with the Los Angeles Lakers at TD Garden on Jan. 20.

The Celtics will wear the 2019-20 City Edition uniform for the final time on April 15 against Chicago, when the organization celebrates Fan Appreciation Night during the regular-season finale.
