Blazers To Wear Oklahoma City National Memorial-Themed Jersey
The Oklahoma City Blazers are thrilled and honored to announce that they will be wearing a specialty jersey, themed with the Oklahoma City National Memorial.
Through partnership with the Memorial, the Blazers will wear the jerseys during the weekend of March 6th against the Northern Colorado Eagles. The team will wear the jerseys during Friday and Saturday's game, with a live auction following Saturday's contest, with a portion of the proceeds going back to the National Memorial.
The jersey features the Oklahoma City National Memorial Museum's logo on the left sleeve, as well as the Survivor Tree imposed on the front and the back of the jersey. The nine gold stars on the sides and right sleeve of the jersey represent the nine floors of the Alfred P. Murrah federal building.
Around the inside of the collar features a hanger effect, with the words "We Remember," followed by the date of the bombing on April 19, 1995.
"As we approach the 25th anniversary of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah federal building, we wanted to do something special this season with our specialty jersey," said Eric Rodgers, Blazers Director of Communications. "When the opportunity presented itself to be able to partner with the Oklahoma City National Memorial in creating this jersey, we couldn't wait to get started on the process, and help honor those affected."
Stay tuned for more information as the weekend approaches!
