Broncos set to unveil new uniforms just days before NFL Draft: Three things to know about the upcoming release


For the first time in nearly 30 years, the Denver Broncos are getting set to make a dramatic change to their uniforms. The Broncos announced on social media that they’ll be wearing a new look for the 2024 season. 

The Broncos uniforms haven’t undergone any major changes since 1997 when they unveiled their current look. In the 27 years since then, the Broncos have made a few slight changes: They released a color rush jersey in 2016, and they unveiled a white helmet in 2023, but their main uniforms have stayed mostly intact. 

The Broncos also switched from a blue home jersey to an orange home jersey prior to the 2012 season, but that didn’t involve a total redesign of the uniforms — this one will.

Here’s what you need to know: 

1. A total redesign is coming. Broncos team president Damani Leech revealed on Monday that the uniform will be a “full redesign.” However, he did add that not everything will be changing. The team will be keeping the “same colors and same logo” in place. 

2. Leech hints at what the redesign might look like. Here’s what Leech had to say about the process of designing the new uniforms: “Part of the process was talking about, what’s important for the Broncos? What’s important for Broncos fans? Wanting to evolve and be new and different but also be respectful of our history and our traditions,” Leech said, via the Denver Post. “Understanding our surroundings from a geographic standpoint, there will be nods to that and I think people be really excited about it.”

When the Broncos unveiled their white helmets last year, the color was a nod to the snowcapped Rocky Mountains and it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Broncos fully embrace that theme once again. As Leech notes, the team wanted to make a uniform that shows that the Broncos understand “our surroundings from a geographic standpoint.”
