Moose Jaw Warriors release 30th anniversary jersey
Jerseys feature the original Warriors logo from 1984-85
The Moose Jaw Warriors have released their 30th anniversary retro jersey during a time when other sports teams are debating the possibility of changing theirs.
A Facebook group in Saskatoon is asking for public support to change the name and image of the Bedford Road Collegiate Redmen.
- Group fights to change Bedford Road Collegiate Redmen's name
- Group wants Bedford Road Collegiate Redmen to change name
The group said the name and the Redmen logo is not a positive representation of an Indigenous person.
After a few years of debating the issue, the decision to change it is now left up to the Saskatoon Public School Board.
According to the Warriors' website, players will be wearing the jerseys for the 2014-15 WHL season.
The red jerseys feature the original Warriors logo from 1984-85, which was the team's first season in Moose Jaw after moving from Winnipeg.
“The jersey and anniversary logo encompasses 30 years of exciting Warriors tradition," said Corey Nyhagen, Warriors director of business operations, on their website. "We look forward to seeing every citizen of Planet Red displaying their Warriors colours next season.”
