The San Diego Chargers announced Monday they will wear white jerseys together with white pants for the first time since their new uniforms were introduced in 2007 at Sunday’s home opener against the Tennessee Titans at Qualcomm Stadium.
The team is asking fans to dress in all white.
“Imagine a full stadium all in white, unified behind the team dressed in all white,” Chargers CEO A.G. Spanos said. “It will be loud. It will be impressive. It will be intimidating and it will give our players a huge emotional boost and even-stronger home field advantage.”
A pregame ceremony will be held to retire the No. 55 jersey of the late linebacker Junior Seau, who was chosen to play in 12 consecutive Pro Bowls during a 13-season career with the Chargers.
Seau died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound May 2 at his two-story beach home in Oceanside. He was 43 years old.
