And we are getting dark blue vs dark grey in game 1.  

At least the helmet and pants contrast.

I presume that is also the logic behind the shoulder caps. They add to the color differentiation as the game is being played.

 

This is why so many of us are opposed to color on color match ups. It LOOKS minor league (because it IS minor league).

As they seem to be building singular identities (saving money) by staying with one jersey unless absolutely necessary, I doubt they invested in different sock colors. :)

Even with the wrong number font, the Apollos new blue jerseys look... good? with the rest of the uniform

I am a bit old school. I like the clean, standardized look of the Memphis and Orlando clash jerseys. No side panels, sleeve caps, or shoulder yokes.  Maybe Starter is showing off their basic edition catalog...  Clean but nondescript, if you could buy one folks would think you just like blue with orange trim.

Orlando looks good. Just change the numbers out for the custom Apollos font and you'd have a pretty sharp clash jersey.

Save for the ad patch it looks like a Bears uniform, should've went orange w/blue yolk.

Once the second season rolls around, barring anymore financial troubles, I'd imagine these uniform troubles will be resolved.

If they want to keep one uniform, they could have avoided this if they gave Orlando orange primary uniforms.  Week two against the Commanders might've been an issue but I think if they had blue pants it would've been fine.

 

The blue uniform looking nothing like the white jersey looks cheap and makes the league look unprepared for something they had to have known was going to happen.

 

edit: Especially not a great look when the giant number on your helmets is different from the uniform numbers.

Lack of attendance looks way worse. Outside of this board, people don't realize that the blue and white uniforms are different.

By the way, was it a problem for you when the Minnesota Vikings wore different templates home and away?

At Home. It's a high end Home Depot/Lowes.

Nope.  It's less a problem of different templates, really.  It's more because the team's President said they only had white uniforms a few weeks ago and then tonight they come out in really cheap looking uniforms, completely lacking some of the unique elements the league's other uniforms have (namely the side panel and pant stripes).  Also that, despite a completely unique number font, they have one that looks like it's directly out of a catalog.  This is also the second time a team has come out in uniforms we didn't know they have that look like they were put together at the last second.  Even on Reddit I've seen a few people comment that they (and the Express uniforms from week one) look cheap and rushed and you can't say anything bad about the league over there.

 

Yeah, the lack of attendance isn't that great but I sure wouldn't expect anybody to show up in this weather for a team they have little connection to.

The whole bailout has changed my view of the league. Before, I thought quirks like this were endearing parts of a startup operation. Now, they’re just marks of a second-rate and under-capitalized organization struggling to survive that might not be worth my time.
