The Chargers will be in their Throwbacks for their season opener in Oakland, a Monday Night Football contest on Sept. 14. Oakland’s Throwbacks are also from their 1963 season, featuring a silver helmet with the original Raiders logo. The logo is similar to the current one worn by the team, but the Throwback emblem is filled in with silver rather than black.
San Diego’s home Legacy game comes in Week 6 (Oct. 19) when it hosts the Broncos on Monday Night Football. Denver’s “Legacy” uniforms are brown and yellow with brown helmets that feature the players’ jersey numbers.
A week later, the Chargers travel to Kansas City to play the Chiefs. Kansas City will wear their 1962 Dallas Texans uniforms. The red and white jerseys are similar to the ones the Chiefs wear today, but the throwback helmets feature an outline of the state of Texas.
The Chargers will wear their ’63 powder blue jerseys with white trim for some Legacy games and white jerseys with powder blue trim for others. It’s yet to be determined which uniforms they’ll wear in which legacy games. Each team will wear a commemorative anniversary patch on their jerseys, and the Chargers will wear a patch commemorating the team’s 50th anniversary throughout the season.
The Chargers’ are similar to the ones the team wore for the NFL’s 75th Anniversary celebration in 1994. The jerseys are replicas of those worn by the 1963 AFL Champion Chargers. The white pants feature a yellow lightning bolt down the side, and each player’s helmet displays his jersey number.
During Legacy Games, the officials will wear the orange, white and black uniforms that their AFL counterparts donned in the 1960’s. The field will also contain AFL logos and marks.
Later this month, the Chargers will announce several opportunities for fans to get involved with the team’s celebration. Stay tuned to Chargers.com for details. Read
