Nike revealed the NFL’s 2016 Color Rush jerseys Tuesday morning with a nod to the Purple People Eaters and their colorful uniforms.
The Vikings will wear purple jerseys and pants with yellow lettering and numbers for the Thursday night, Dec. 1 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys at U.S. Bank Stadium.
Teddy Bridgewater is wearing the uniform in Nike’s ad featuring stars from all 32 teams.
The NFL and Nike launched the Color Rush campaign — a full head-to-toe monochromatic look — last season with eight teams. The designs draw inspiration from both current and historic uniform schemes “celebrating the hallmarks of each club’s distinctive identity.
The first set of Color Rush jerseys will be on display this Thursday when the Buffalo Bills host the New York Jets.
The Vikings last wore purple jerseys and pants in a 44-31 loss to Green Bay in December 2013.
Fans can buy the jerseys now and all NFL’s proceeds from the sales go directly to the NFL foundation to fund health, safety and wellness programs for youth around the country. The first $500,000 raised will be used to help replace high school football fields and equipment lost in the recent Louisiana flooding.
