The Red Deer Rebels have unveiled a new fourth jersey.

The new threads will be worn for the first time when the Rebels return home from a seven game road trip on November 18 to face the Kootenay Ice.

The “4th” jersey will serve as the alternate white jersey for seasons to come, the club says, while all three existing uniforms will remain in rotation.

“With the jersey reversal system in place across the WHL, it becomes difficult to wear our burgundy jersey in the second half of the season,” explained Rebels Sr. Vice President Merrick Sutter.  “The response to the alternate “skull” uniform by our fans and players has been incredibly positive, we wanted the opportunity to showcase that brand more consistently throughout the season.”

The new jersey is based off the burgundy alternate, with white serving as the primary colour.

During the WHL season, teams wear their dark jerseys at home during the first half of the year, and their light jerseys at home during the second half and playoffs. Any one-off exceptions are coordinated by the teams.

New jerseys will be available for purchase when doors open for the Nov. 18 game against Kootenay.  Olymel will present the first Post Game Fireworks of the season following that game.
