The Minnesota Vikings will unveil their new uniforms on April 25 at a draft party, the team announced on Thursday. The uniforms will be Minnesota's 14th different set in its history and the first change since 2006, according to heritagesportsart.com.
The event will take place at Mall of America Field and include current and former Vikings players signing autographs. Fans that can't wait can also gain some insight into the design process. Eric J. Thompson of Vikings blog Daily Norseman suggests the change should be well received, as many were not happy with the last iteration.
Odds are that the uniforms will feature a lot of purple and some yellow or gold. White is also a safe bet. But who knows? Maybe they'll go a completely different direction and come out in all black uniforms or be the first NFL team to use pink as a primary color?
The Seattle Seahawks were the last NFL team to make a uniform change, and the only club to do so in 2012 when Nike took over the league's contract.
