The Winnipeg Blue Bombers’ new look will be on full display Thursday.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers President Wade MIller said wide receiver Weston Dressler and defensive back Maurice Leggett will model the new look, which includes a head-to-toe makeover, from helmet to pants.

The Bombers announced earlier this year they would be switching back to the classic royal blue colour.

“These jerseys are a product of listening to our fans and their strong desire for these colours to return,” said Miller. “The mix of the retro royal blue with some new design elements on both the home blue and road white, recognizes our great history while also looking to the future.”

The jerseys will be unveiled at 10 a.m. at IGF. The Bombers will join teams across the CFL for the uniform refresh.
