The Calgary Flames are stepping back in time with a new 1980s-inspired jersey

The team announced Monday that they are returning to the classic look – worn from their inaugural season in the mid-80s through the mid-90s – for the « next season and beyond »

The brand will also revert to the original color scheme – red, yellow and white – and abandon the accented black part that was present since the mid-90s

“Since reintroducing the retro look to alternative jerseys in 2009, we’ve heard comments from a lot of our fan base. They love the original look and really wanted us to come back to it,” said Ryan Popowich , marketing director of the Flames in a press release

“It took a while to put all the necessary pieces in place. The addition of the retro-inspired Heritage Classic white jersey last season was the last piece of the puzzle and the time has finally come when we can gift the fans what they always wanted: that we become totally retro « 

The team explained that the current alternate shirt, which featured the 80s look, will now be the red home shirt, and the recent Heritage Classic shirt will be the away shirt The return of the Flames to retro is a « final nod to the celebrations of the current 40th season » which began in the 2019-2020 season

Flames captain Mark Giordano loves the new jerseys, saying they conjure up images of when the Flames won the Stanley Cup in 1989

« Today’s players take pride in knowing that we are carrying on a legacy and a tradition, » he said

« They look great and feel even better on I think these are the coolest jerseys in the league »
