The Pittsburgh Steelers will wear their color rush and throwback uniforms once each in the 2019 season, the team announced on Tuesday.
The gold-lettered and -numbered color rush uniforms with black pants will be worn during Week 8, when the Steelers host the Miami Dolphins for Monday night football on October 28.
The block-lettered throwbacks that are reminiscent of the uniforms the team wore from the late 1960s until the turn of the century will be worn on Sunday, November, 10, when the Steelers host the Los Angeles Rams.
The Steelers debuted the block throwbacks as part of the 2018 40th anniversary celebration for the team’s Super Bowl XII championship team. They’ll serve a similar role in 2019, as they’ll be worn during the team’s alumni weekend as the Steelers celebrate another 40th anniversary, this time from the Super Bowl XIV-winning team from 1979.
The color rush uniforms were introduced as part of a league-wide initiative in 2016 to coincide with an expanded Thursday Night Football programming lineup. The NFL discontinued the program before the 2018 season, but the Steelers have decided to continue to wear them voluntarily.
The Steelers also announced that they will officially induct their 2019 Hall of Honor class on Monday, September 30 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
