The World Hockey League, It's Back!!!

Recommended Posts

I had a pretty awesome project going on for awhile here in which I had a part-sim, part-fantasy, part-historical thread that ended up getting shut down by our benevolent mods. I decided to come back to the league and post uniform histories for each franchise as if the league continued. For those interested, check out the thread here.

 

First up are the Amsterdam Royals:

 

The Royals started the 1990-91 season in these jerseys:

For their final season in Amsterdam, the Royals changed to these unis:

For the 1995-96 season, the franchise moved to London, England to become the London Crown:

For the 1996-97 season, the Crown added a third jersey:

For the 1998-99 season, the Crown adopted their previous alternate uniform as their road uniform and designed a home and alternate uniform based on that one:

In the 2000-01 season, the Crown would use a different crown logo on their road uniform and added more white:

For the 2006-07 season, the Crown promoted their red uniform to full-time road use:

For the 2011-12 season, the Crown again changed the crest on their black uniform back to the original:

For the 2014-15 season, the Crown adopted these retro-inspired uniforms that they currently wear:

Interesting way to resurrect this. Good idea. Looking forward to see how other teams develop. 

 

Good job with the Royals/Crowns. Have to say I prefer the original Royals though.

Next are the Boston Irish.

 

They took to the ice in 1990 wearing these classic uniforms:

In the 1996-97 season, the Irish changed their look adding a darker shade of green:

In the 1998-99 season, the Irish went back to their original uniforms keeping the previous home uniform as their alternates:

In the 2004-05 season, the Irish added an Irish flag jersey that wasn't too popular:

In the 2006-07 season, the Irish added a black third uniform:

The Emperors added a sky blue uniform in 2004, just because it was the trendy color at the time, and because Brooklyn:

With the exception of the skyline set, I like them all. 

 

Agreed. The newest look is really modern, really hipster, and really Brooklyn. I love it.

 

Glad to see this back!

In 1998, the Magi packed up and moved to Amsterdam to fill the void created when the Royals took off. This new team was known as the Amsterdam Dutchmen and had a naval theme in their uniforms and stadium. Don't worry German fans, there will be a new German team in 1998 to take the Magi's place. They Dutchmen to the ice wearing these uniforms:

In 2000, the Dutchmen added a third jersey:

2000-04.png

 

In 2004, the Dutchmen added a home and alternate jersey based on their previous third jersey.
