Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles Unveil Uniforms For Super Bowl LVII
The uniform matchup for Super Bowl LVII is officially set, as the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles have both announced what they’ll wear when they meet in Glendale, Ariz., on Feb. 12 (6:30 p.m. ET on FOX).
As the designated home team, the Eagles have naturally chosen their standard look of midnight green helmets, midnight green jerseys and white pants. They’re 8-2 in that combination this season, including 2-0 in the playoffs.
Philadelphia also wore its home uniform in its three previous Super Bowl appearances, dropping Super Bowl XV to the Oakland Raiders and Super Bowl XXXIX to the New England Patriots before knocking off the Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
The Chiefs, meanwhile, will be in their standard road set of red helmets, white jerseys and red pants. They’re 4-2 in that combination this season, including a season-opening win against the Arizona Cardinals in State Farm Stadium, site of this year’s Super Bowl.
Kansas City hasn’t worn white jerseys in the Super Bowl since the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game, retroactively known as Super Bowl I. This will be the first time the white jerseys have been paired with red pants, though, as they wore white pants in that loss to the Green Bay Packers.
Working in Kansas City’s favor, the team in white has won 15 of the last 18 Super Bowls, including last year’s game between the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals. The Chiefs were actually the last team win the Super Bowl in their home uniform, beating the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV.
Lastly, every Super Bowl played in Arizona has been won by the team in white, including the Dallas Cowboys over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XXX, New York Giants over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII and Patriots over the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX.
