City Edition uniforms out for first time Friday as Magic face Raptors
The Orlando Magic return to Amway Center on Friday for the first of two straight home games.
It also will mark the game debut of the team’s City Edition uniforms as the Magic take on the Toronto Raptors. The contest tips off at 7 p.m. and can be seen on Fox Sports Florida.
The Magic (7-10) will put a three-game home win streak on the line against the Raptors (13-4).
Orlando unveiled its latest uniform iteration earlier this month at the NBA Experience at Disney Springs in front of season ticket holders and plenty of fanfare that included Central Florida icon Mickey Mouse.
The new jerseys are anthracite gray with orange lettering, a departure from the team’s traditional blue, white and black color palette, and feature “ORL” across the chest. They feature the Magic’s symbol in orange on the side of the shorts and breaks from the team’s pinstripe tradition.
In addition, the Magic will utilize a new hardwood floor on Friday that is tied in with the City Edition uniforms.
This will be the fourth and final uniform in the
Magic’s collection this season. They already have unveiled their “Statement” uniforms, featuring splashes of the team’s classic pinstripes on the shorts and jersey. The other uniforms include “Icon” and “Association.”
The City Edition uniform for each NBA team honors the city and its fans and will change each season. This current “ORL” version will only be worn this season.
The Magic’s City Edition jerseys went on sale
Wednesday at the Magic Team Shop at Amway Center and online at www.orlandomagicshop.com.
Orlando and Toronto, meanwhile, will be meeting for the third time this season, with the Raptors winning the first two at Scotiabank Arena.
The teams will play for the fourth and final time in the regular-season finale on April 15.
