Charge to suit up in Wine & Gold

CANTON–Taking a fresh cue on the Wine & Gold, the Canton Charge, powered by the Cleveland Cavaliers, unveiled the team’s official uniforms for their 2011-12 inaugural season.

The NBA D-League Charge will feature a unique look with the introduction of an exclusive home “gold” uniform (in contrast to the home white as worn in the NBA) and will wear wine uniforms on the road. The Canton Charge will make their home court debut at the Canton Memorial Civic Center on Friday, Nov. 25 at 7:30 p.m. for the season opener against the defending NBA D-League champion Iowa Energy.

“We are excited to introduce the Charge’s new uniforms that were created to showcase the team’s pride in a bold and colorful way,” said Scott Woodruff, Charge senior vice president and COO. “While the uniforms still reflect a strong connection to the Cavaliers brand, we’re going to be very proud to carry the Canton name around the league on our away jerseys and the home gold Charge uniforms are loud and proud too!”

The authentic adidas® flat-back mesh style uniforms feature deep wine and bright gold hues with a crisp, contemporary, yet timeless, design that is reflected in all NBA D-League uniforms. The front of the home gold jersey displays the official team wordmark “Charge” in wine across the chest, and the front of the road wine jersey reads “Canton” in gold. On both uniforms the Cavaliers primary logo appears on one side of the shorts and the Canton Charge stylized single-C is on the other side.

The new Charge uniforms are in the production process right now and information regarding their availability for fan purchase will be announced in November.
