The Panthers will wear dark gray uniforms, with light grey numbers and lettering and gold accents, and a light gray helmet with a dark gray Panther head logo.
The gray uniforms pay tribute to the city’s steelworking industry. There is a gold patch with a blacksmith working on an anvil on the front of the uniform and an “H2P” patch evocative of the US Steel logo on the sleeves.
The numbers and fonts appear to the the same as Pitt’s primary uniform set, which debuted in 2019. This is the first alternate uniform released in this uniform set. The last time Pitt had an alternate uniform was in 2016, when the debuted their athletic gold and royal blue throwback uniforms.
