The Buffalo Sabres are returning to royal blue.
The team will hold Jersey Reveal Week in partnership with Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center from Monday, Aug. 10 to Friday, Aug. 14. Uniforms will be unveiled at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 11.
The week will turn the page on the organization's 50th season celebration and look ahead to the future with the return of the original royal blue, gold, and white color scheme worn by the Sabres for more than two decades beginning with their inception in 1970.
Giveaways, exclusive content, and community initiatives will be held throughout the week. Here is a day-by-day breakdown of what to expect.
Monday, Aug. 10 - Farewell to 50
The Golden Season officially comes to an end. We're giving away game-issued jerseys throughout the day on the Sabres' social media channels beginning at 9 a.m.
An online auction featuring game-worn jerseys and equipment will kick off at 5 p.m. and run until Sunday, Aug. 23 at 9 p.m. at Sabres.com/auctions.
All season ticket holders will receive an email to redeem a Gilbert Perreault bobblehead commemorating the Sabres' 50th season, and some lucky season ticket holders will even enjoy surprise deliveries throughout the day.
The day will also feature the team's annual player awards and a look back at the 2019-20 season.
Tuesday, Aug. 11 - The Royal Reveal
The day Sabres fans have been waiting for. We'll reveal the new home and away uniforms at 9 a.m. with content to follow throughout the day on our social media channels and Sabres.com.
Wednesday, Aug. 12 - Paint the Town Royal Community Day
We're painting the town royal. Buffalo Place, City Hall, and the Peace Bridge will be among the local landmarks lit in royal blue as activations take place throughout the community with participation from local organizations.
You can show your spirit by wearing royal blue, drawing Sabres logos with sidewalk chalk, or dusting off your royal memorabilia. We know you'll be creative.
