In honor of all the brave men and women who protect and serve our country, the Stockton Thunder are proud to release this year’s military uniforms that will be worn during the team’s Military Appreciation Weekend on April 4th and 5th.

These jerseys, designed in partnership with Athletic Knit, are modeled after the Thunder’s current third jersey but feature desert camouflage. American Flags will adorn the shoulders with white stars trailing down the black-trimmed arms of the jersey.

The body of the jersey utilizes the Thunder’s alternate “Thor Head” logo and black inserts on the sides. The front bottom of the jersey reads “Thunder Strong” while the reverse side of the jersey will feature insignia patches from the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. The white numbers on the jersey will be outlined in grey and black.

All of the patches on the game worn jersey, including the Wells Fargo patch at the right shoulder will be fully embroidered and the names and numbers on the jersey will be tackle-twill.

Game worn jerseys will be available through live and silent auctions throughout Military Weekend with proceeds benefiting Welcome Home Heroes. Bids will start at $400.

Along with the release of the jerseys, the Thunder are also proud to open up a three-day window where active duty or retired veterans can preorder a custom, fully sublimated jersey with mesh side inserts featuring your last name and two-digit number of your choice for $150 (fully sublimated includes Thor Head Logo, name, number, flags, and military logos).

These custom jerseys specifically for veterans, reserves, and active duty members of the military can be customized with your own last name and a two digit number signifying your first or last year of service, your favorite number, or the number of years you served.

Important to note that the Thunder will not be accepting orders that feature the names and numbers of current or former Thunder players.

The jerseys are not guaranteed to arrive before or during Military Appreciation Weekend. However, those who preorder will be contacted by the phone number provided upon arrival.

Fully sublimated, blank replica jerseys will also be available at the Stockton Fan Attic in both Adult ($110) and Youth ($99) sizes.
