Going Bold with Gold

Suited up in their NEW GOLD UNIFORMS, the Cavs will make a bold on-court debut for their home opener against the Washington Wizards on October 30th at 7:00 p.m. The gold uniform will serve as their permanent official alternate to the home white uniform and will be worn substantially throughout the season.

The authentic adidas® uniforms feature a bright gold jersey with deep wine "CAVS" word marking across the chest. Similar to the distinctive features on the current primary home and away uniforms, the Cavaliers "DNA" statement "All For One. One For All" is printed on the inner-collar, the Cavaliers "C" is centered below the neckline and the secondary logo "C-sword" appears on both sides of the shorts.

Get Your Gold On! The Cavaliers Team Shop will be the first to make available the gold replica and swingman jerseys before their big debut on Opening Night.
