The Los Angeles Chargers announced that the team will wear powder blue as its primary home uniform color in 2019.
"The powders are NICE!" said safety Adrian Phillips. "There's just something special when you put them on. You get a whole different feeling. A whole different vibe. Seeing that powder blue in the stadium and all your brothers wearing it, it's a great feeling. Knowing we're wearing that more is exciting. ... Before I even came to the Chargers I knew about the powder blues. When I came out here and got to put it on, it's an honor. You hear it around the nation -- the powder blues are the best in sports. So getting to wear them more, it feels like we get to turn up more."
Variations of the powder blue uniforms date back to the team's inaugural 1960 season in Los Angeles. They moved away from the color scheme prior to the 1974 season.
"That powder blue just brings out something different," linebacker Denzel Perryman said. "It's my favorite jersey, and that's what we hear (on the field) whenever we wear them. It just pops. You can't help but feel good when you wear them."
