Detroit Red Wings Under Fire For Making Changes To Iconic Jersey

Published February 29, 2024 at 11:38

Despite facing backlash, the National Hockey League proceeded with the decision to allow teams to introduce sponsorships on their helmets and sweaters. This move aims to compensate for revenue losses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Red Wings Under Fire For New Jersey Change

Even historic teams like the Toronto Maple Leafs, Boston Bruins, and Montreal Canadiens have embraced this trend. Now, it seems the Detroit Red Wings are following suit.

According to Brad Galli of WXYZ, the Red Wings will unveil their first-ever jersey patch partnership before tonight's game against the New York Islanders at Little Caesars Arena.

The Red Wings are getting their first «jersey patch partner» that the team will announce on Thursday.

However, the announcement has already sparked significant negative reactions on social media.

The Red Wings already feature a helmet sponsorship, currently held by Meijer, and previously by UWM. Yet, they have never displayed any advertisements on their sweaters. Over the years, the team has sported various patches, including the special "Believe" patch in 1997-98 and the "Mr. I" patch in 2016-17.

Anticipate strong backlash as the Red Wings sweater is one of the most iconic in sports and fans may not take kindly to changes.
