The Bullets will celebrate the glory days of Brisbane basketball as part of the Mitchell & Ness Heritage Round this weekend.
The vintage blue kit draws design inspiration from both the 1990 championship final jersey and 1987 championship jerseys worn by local legends including Leroy Loggins and Larry Sengstock.
As a foundation NBL team with three championships (1985, 1987 and 2007), the Heritage Round holds a special place for the Brisbane Bullets.
The long-awaited Brisbane Bullets return season to the National Basketball League (NBL), has reinvigorated an almost 30-year heritage, which the Club is excited to celebrate this round.
Upon Brisbane’s return, three-time NBL champion Leroy Loggins said it meant a lot for the city and for those involved in the Bullets past.
“There’s a lot of history involved in the Brisbane Bullets over the past years and unfortunately we lost that for a while but now the legacy has opened up again,’ Mr Loggins said.
The official Apparel Partner of the NBL, Mitchell & Ness, has created the iconic jersey, which coincides with their announcement that they will continue to partner with the NBL for a further two seasons (2017/18 and 2018/19).
The Brisbane Bullets will debut the limited-edition heritage jersey when they take the court against Illawarra Hawks away on Friday (13 January).
Local fans will get the opportunity to see the Bullets in blue at home on Sunday afternoon, when the team take on New Zealand Breakers at the BCEC, tip off at 2pm local time.
The Heritage Round Brisbane Bullets jersey will be available for purchase at the game on Sunday as well as online following the game via the Official Bullets Merchandise Store.
