The Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League are bringing old-time hockey to North Carolina with their jerseys for the 2024 Queen City Outdoor Classic.
The Checkers unveiled the jerseys on Tuesday, September 5, at Truist Field, home to the Charlotte Knights triple-A baseball team and site of the Outdoor Classic game, in which the Checkers will face the Rochester Americans on January 13, 2024.
The jersey combines styles that previous incarnations of the Checkers wore in the 1950s and the 1970s. The front of the jersey features a baseball-inspired red script “Checkers” wordmark with a black outline.
A thick red stripe runs around the shoulder yoke, while double red stripes run around the waist and each sleeve. The sleeves also have solid red cuffs and numbers overtop of the double stripes.
