The Long Island Concordes unveiled their new uniforms on September 10, 1981. The logo would remain unchanged but the dark jersey is now blue instead of orange, and there have been some changes made to the stripes as well as a more traditional number font. The white home uniform now features contrasting blue pants, eliminating the "tracksuit" look. "We liked the crazy design of the other uniforms." said GM Garth Simmons, "but we felt that it's time for a more mature look, we're not an expansion team anymore and we want to wear uniforms that a championship team would wear."
