Detroit Pistons - Motor City uniform

The Detroit Pistons unveiled Wednesday (August 14) a special uniform that will be worn during 10 game dates throughout the upcoming, 2013-14 regular season.

The navy blue and red uniforms feature "Motor City" across the front, and mark the club's first alternative look since the 2005-06 NBA season. The uniforms are the first of their kind, designed to celebrate the pride and character of metro Detroit, while paying homage to the region's automotive roots.

"We are pleased to unveil our new Motor City uniforms and display our pride in the metro Detroit community," said Dennis Mannion, CEO of the Detroit Pistons. "When you say Motor City -- no matter where you are in the world -- everyone knows you are talking about Detroit. We are proud to represent Detroit and hope these uniforms will serve as a source of pride for our fans and this region."

Lettering and numbering style on the jersey is consistent with the team’s current home and away uniforms. To contrast the navy blue and red accents, lettering and numbers on the jerseys and shorts are white with hair-line red and blue trim. The club's secondary logo appears on the shorts -- similar to the primary home and away uniforms.

Jerseys will be available at all Pistons retail locations in November.

Motor City uniforms will be worn on selected Sunday dates, as part of the club's Motor City Sunday theme nights, as well as one holiday home game and three road games shown on the schedule below:

11/3 - Boston
11/17 - at L.A. Lakers
