Minnesota Vikings unveil white alternate uniforms

EAGAN, Minn. — The coldest NFL market now has what its local team is calling the “coldest uniform in the league.”

On Thursday, the Minnesota Vikings unveiled an almost entirely white alternate uniform for the 2024 season. The “Winter Warrior” look features a white helmet with a satin finish and is adorned by a metallic gray stripe inspired by the metal stripping found on ancient Viking helmets.

The team will wear the uniform for its Dec. 16 Monday night game against the Chicago Bears at U.S. Bank Stadium.

The uniform is based on the team’s decision to wear their standard white jerseys and white pants for one game in both the 2022 and 2023 seasons, which the Vikings dubbed “Winter Whiteouts.” For those games, they wore their usual purple helmets.

The 2024 uniform has been stripped of all “warm” shades, making it the first Vikings uniform in franchise history to not include gold. Instead, it includes a gray stripe on the pants and dripping icicles on the numbers.

The Vikings also updated the Nordic knot near the neckline to include three shields, a reference to coach Kevin O’Connell’s “Culture Shield” and mantra of “Our Way. Our Team. Our Process.”

The NFL allows its teams to have up to two alternative uniforms which can be worn up to twice per season.
