NC State's new football uniforms

The North Carolina State Wolfpack football team will take the football field in new threads this season.

Fans can expect to see a new uniform style and fabric which will feature true NC State red home jerseys with "STATE" across the chest. The classic white pants will feature a block S logo.

The uniforms are made with Adidas' TechFit fabric, which promises a more breathable, comfortable fit for the players and the pants feature a sleek, beltless design.

"The uniforms have a very clean, traditional look," said head coach Tom O'Brien. "Our older fans will like them because they are reminiscent of the uniforms of great teams of the past and our current players will like them because they are stylish, comfortable and actually have elements that will benefit them on the field of play."

Director of Athletics Deborah A. Yow decided early in her tenure that she wanted the Wolfpack program to be identified as "STATE" on all uniforms. "It's a basic, bold statement: State. That's who we are," she said.

The new TechFit uniforms are 30 percent lighter than standard pieces and offer increased mobility, agility, comfort and durability.

Wolfpack fans can get a closer look at all variations of the new uniforms at Meet the Pack Day on Aug. 13 at Carter-Finley Stadium. Replica jerseys will be available in the student bookstore and on GoPack.com in August.
