There’s nothing like an announcement for an announcement to get fans excited. On Wednesday, the Indianapolis Colts took to social media to tease an announcement that they’ll make on Wednesday morning at 10am ET, and fans are already anticipating what this announcement could be.
This all started when the Colts announced the themes for their home games. Fans quickly noticed that for the Week 7 game on October 22, the theme was listed as “Reveal July 17.” However, Indy didn’t have an announcement for fans on that day. Still, fans had guessed that this surprise theme would either be a Ring of Honor induction or an alternate uniform.
Following an 18-second teaser video of the silhouette of two players in front of a video of the city of Indianapolis, fans are leaning towards the idea of an alternate uniform.
Fans believe Colts will announce an alternate uniform on Wednesday
Indianapolis plans to wear throwback uniforms in Week 16 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, so it’s unclear what direction the franchise could go with these alternate uniforms. Will the Colts unveil a different throwback than the one they’ve worn in recent years? Could this be the return of the blue helmet?
Many fans are hoping that it’s an all-black uniform, similar to the one that’s floated around the internet for years. Fans have consistently asked the franchise to unveil a blackout alternate; could that wish finally be granted? We’ll find out Wednesday morning.
All week, NFL teams have been revealing cool uniform concepts that they’ll wear this year. From throwbacks to new helmets, each team is taking their own approach. It seems like the Colts will join the party on Thursday, and it’ll be interesting to see if the alternate is a one off or something that becomes a staple.
