The Orlando Magic’s newest City Edition jerseys are meant to represent the team and city of Orlando as a “unique kingdom on the rise.”
The all-black uniform, which was released Thursday, features a metallic gray accent that’s “a suit of armor to display strength and fortitude” and pinstripes along with the star on the side of the shorts to “pay homage to cherished symbols of the Magic’s past.”
The uniform also features a gothic “Orlando” script on the front center of the jersey. The diamond pattern covering the jersey and shorts is meant to signify a “knight-worthy line of defense.”
The Magic will debut their new City Edition uniforms, and the new court design to accompany them, Monday when they host the Charlotte Hornets at Amway Center.
They’ll wear the new uniforms 16 times this season — 12 home games and four on the road.
City Edition uniforms, which are in their sixth season, were designed to represent the “stories, history and heritage that make each franchise unique.”
The Magic’s previous City Edition uniform was unveiled in 2019 with an orange theme representing sunshine and citrus. The team wore variations of the orange theme from 2019-22.
This is the final of the Magic’s four uniforms for the 2022-23 season: Icon (black), Association (white), Statement (blue) and City (all-black).
The City Edition uniforms are available for purchase at the Magic Team Shop at Amway Center and online at www.orlandomagicshop.com.
