Thursday Night Football is about to get faster, bolder and brighter with the return of NFL Color Rush. First tested in 2015, when eight NFL clubs took the field in Color Rush uniforms, today the NFL and Nike unveiled Color Rush uniforms for all 32 NFL clubs. Comprising full-color head-to-toe look, each club’s Color Rush uniform takes inspiration from both its current and historic uniform colors and designs, combined with progressive innovation that will set the tone for the future of the game and light up Thursday Night Football.

 

Participating teams will take the field wearing special Color Rush uniforms (several wearing Nike’s Vapor Untouchable uniform) exclusively on Thursday Night Football in 2016, the fastest growing night of NFL football.

 

One hundred percent of the NFL’s proceeds from the sale of Color Rush jerseys will go directly to the NFL Foundation to fund health, safety and wellness programs for youth around the country. The NFL Foundation is the league’s nonprofit organization representing all 32 clubs and funds grants to support athletes, youth football and the communities which support our great game. The first $500,000 raised from this initiative will be earmarked to replace youth and high school football equipment and fields lost in last month’s devastating floods in Louisiana.

 

The Thursday Night Football Color Rush schedule for 2016 includes:

 

9/15 – Jets at Bills

9/22 – Texans at Patriots

9/29 –  Dolphins at Bengals

10/6 –  Cardinals at 49ers
