Bull Skull Is Back; Rebels Unveil Third Jersey
For the first time in six years, the Red Deer Rebels have unveiled a new alternate sweater!
Making it’s return is the popular bull skull logo, with the uniform and logo staying true to the club’s primary color palette of burgundy, black, and grey/silver. The sweater, 3 years in development/production due to COVID and supplier delays, will debut tonight when the Rebels take on the Saskatoon Blades at 7pm. Jerseys will be available for sale during the game, as well as online beginning at 7pm!
The Rebels unveiled their first alternate jersey in 2001-02, an all-burgundy kit with white numerals and stripes, the club’s primary logo on the shoulders, and a capitalized ‘R’ on the front.
The next Rebels alternate jersey debuted in 2010, beige-based, once again with the ‘R’ logo front and centre, burgundy striping and black numerals. The shoulders featured the Rebels ‘alternate skull’ without crossed sticks for the first time.
The third edition of the Rebels alternate jersey was unveiled in 2014. This burgundy-based look featured beige and black striping, black shoulders and beige numerals. The ‘R’ was moved to the shoulders and replaced in front with the ‘alternate skull.’ A white-based version of this alternate jersey arrived in 2017.
The Rebels have not worn alternate jerseys in game action since May 1, 2022 in Brandon when Jayden Grubbe scored in triple overtime to clinch an opening round playoff series win over the Wheat Kings.
