Redskins to wear 80th anniversary throwback uniforms Sunday

The Redskins will wear their 80th anniversary throwback uniforms on Sunday.

The Washington Redskins will wear their 80th anniversary throwback uniforms Sunday when they host the Carolina Panthers.

The matchup has been designated as the Redskins’ annual Homecoming game. Last season, the team welcomed back more than 90 former players, coaches and staff members.

The uniforms were unveiled back in May, but in case you missed it, here’s a bit of background. The uniforms are modernized versions of what the team wore in 1937, the year the franchise moved from Boston to D.C.

The team will wear dark burgundy jerseys with gold numbers trimmed in white. They will wear gold (actual gold, not yellow, as usual) pants, with burgundy and white socks, and  helmets designed to look as if they are made of leather.
