The Pitt football program has gone through a rebranding and it is a beautiful look that pays homage to everyone’s favorite throwback uniforms. The new Panthers uniforms for the 2019 college football season and beyond feature the familiar bright yellow and royal blue color scheme while adding some modern twists.
Along with the retro color scheme, Pitt has also introduced a brand new secondary logo.
“Pitt people are passionate about their university and love showing their pride in numerous ways, especially by wearing Panthers gear and merchandise,” athletic director Heather Lyke said in a statement. “But for too long we were disjointed in our Pitt branding, whether it be our colors or logos.”
The reason for the rebranding is to pay homage to the past while building the brand for the future.
“It evokes our legends while anticipating future greatness,” Lyke said. “There is power in the Pitt brand and these colors and marks will maximize that strength for Panthers past, present and future.”

Well done, Pitt. This is how you perfectly combine the past with the present. A+ work.
