Tigers Debut Uniforms During Football by Fuente
July 18, 2013
A sold out evening in which the Tigers' female football fans received insight and a new perspective about the sport culminated Thursday in a fashion show which featured the debut of the team's new uniforms.
A vote between two options was conducted by the University of Memphis Alumni Association, leading to an overwhelming response of approval for the apparel unveiled Thursday at the Billy J. Murphy Athletic Complex.
In addition to three different uniform combinations (blue jerseys and both gray and white pants as well as all white), the Tigers unveiled a new chrome helmet as well as a second look to the Memphis Blue helmets the Tigers have worn since 1999.
Memphis opens the 2013 season Sept. 7 when the Tigers play host to Duke.
Ticket prices for the 2013 football season are unchanged from last year and the Tigers play a total of seven home games. Fans can purchase season tickets online at gotigersgo.com, or by calling the athletic ticket office at (901) 678-2331 or (888) 867-UofM.
