Looks like that earlier Vipers leak was legit.

I'm shocked that the Roughnecks aren't wearing blue. Wearing red kind of downplays the "Dollar Store Oilers" vibe the logo had going for it.

I guess we're getting Chargers-esque lightning bolts for the DC Defenders.

Ya, I find that odd. Are they just waiting on announcing the supplier or do they not even have a supplier contract signed yet? You would think the supplier would want the uniform branded with their logo right off the bat, and somebody has to have made these even if they're just mocks.

 

Also, mark me down as a fan of the simplicity of the DC uniforms. It could have been easy to overproduce the lightening theme, but even if I'm not big on the lightening in the pant stripe, they pulled it off relatively tastefully. Also like that the obese shield wasn't included in the helmet logo - looks much better with just the internal logo elements.

That is weird.  Usually if it's not on the front of the jerseys, it's on the shoulders, like how the Nike Swoosh is on the shoulders of NFL jerseys.  Under Armour and Adidas usually have their logos on the front.

Honestly? I don't think the "big three" of Nike, UA, and Adidas want anything to do with minor league football. The AAF could only get Starter, and they're probably not eager to jump in bed with the XFL so soon after the AAF failed. I don't think the XFL had very many, if any suitors. And given what we know about Vince? He probably scoffed at the idea of paying a supplier. So here we are.

 

My guess is the league is taking the approach of "no supplier until someone comes to us first."

Which is ballsy and full of confidence, but it could also make their gear look minor league. Even the AAF had a brand on their gear people knew. Mostly from nostalgia, but still. It was something.

 

Champion would probably be perfect for this league, but either they're not interested or Vince didn't think they were big-time enough for his special project.

Right, and I get all of that, but if there's no supplier... then who is supplying the uniforms? Are they just getting a custom print job from the team sports shop down the road?

Watch out for TapOut, which is owned by Vince McMahon.

 

As for Adidas, they supply the uniforms of the National Arena League:

And Under Armour apparently supplies the uniforms of the Indoor Football League:

Champion outfitted XFL 1.0. I don't know who owns the brand now - is it still Sara Lee? - but it's possible that was not the best of partnerships. Champion basically disappeared from pro sports after that.

Could it be that the area on the chest we assume the suppler opposite the XFL logo is a place for a sponsor patch/advertisement? You could still do branding on the sleeve/shoulders as Nike currently does in the NFL if/once a branding partner is announced.

 

It's also kind of funny how 25 years ago or so, brands weren't on jerseys and when the logo creeps started to happen people were against them and we've eventually accepted them. Now when a league doesn't have a manufacture logo on the jersey, we're all freaking out!
