Royals unveil uniform update for 2022

November 19th, 2021

KANSAS CITY -- The Royals will have a new and updated look when they take the field next year.

In a uniform reveal Friday morning that included modeling from , and , the club announced updates to its uniform for the 2022 season.

The biggest changes are to the road gray and alternate blue uniforms, which will feature “KANSAS CITY” in block letters across the front. The primary home whites and the alternate home baby blues -- featuring “Royals” in the cursive lettering that the organization has had from the beginning -- include a bolder, more pronounced strip around the sleeve. In addition, all uniform lettering will be solid white or solid blue, without the white or blue piping that previous uniforms had.

“We’re excited to introduce to our fans, our new uniform set for the 2022 season,” Royals vice president of Major League team operations Jeff Davenport said in a statement. “These updates reflect fresh variations on our brand esthetic that generations of Royals fans have come to identify with, while also offering newer classic looks to the overall uniform set. We see these as an ode to the traditions of the past yet refined and updated for inspiration of what’s to come.”

While the road jerseys aren’t the full throwback to the powder blues that the team wore in the 1970s and early ‘80s -- these current uniforms don’t include the powder blue pants -- the threading and the block letters spelling out "Kansas City" on the road uniforms are a nod to those past Royals teams.

The Royals announced that fans can purchase authentic jerseys at the Royals Team Store beginning Nov. 26 at 8 a.m. CT. Replica jerseys will also be available for pre-order. Located at Gate C of Kauffman Stadium, the Royals Team Store is the only local store that will carry the new uniforms until Dec. 3. The Royals Team Store will feature several promotions for Black Friday, including 40 percent off storewide (some exclusions apply). Royals Authentics will also be open and offering deals throughout the weekend.
