Eagles to wear home green jerseys in Super Bowl LVII

The Philadelphia Eagles will be wearing their green jerseys when they take the field against the Kansas City Chiefs for Super Bowl LVII in Glendale, Ariz.

The Eagles were given the choice of jersey color given that they are designated as the home team for the game on Feb. 12.

Wearing green on the NFL’s grandest stage is nothing new for Philadelphia, which has selected that jersey color in its three previous Super Bowl appearances. They were unsuccessful in green in both Super Bowl XV versus the then-Oakland Raiders and the Patriots in Super Bowl XXXIX, however they emerged victorious against New England in Super Bowl LII.

The Chiefs will be wearing white jerseys in the Super Bowl for the second time in their history. They were unsuccessful in that color against the Green Bay Packers in the very first Super Bowl.

Kansas City wore red in wins over the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IV and the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV. They also wore that color in a setback to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV.
