Seattle Seahawks Announce Game Themes, Retro Uniforms Return

The Seattle Seahawks announced their 2024 home game themes on Wednesday, though one theme in particular arguably grabbed more attention than the others.

To kick things off, the headliner of the night, the Seahawks announced that their beautiful royal blue throwback uniforms will return for their Week 6 Thursday Night Matchup with the San Francisco 49ers on October 10th.

These uniforms, which Seattle originally wore from 1976-2001, made their grand return last season for two games, first against the Cleveland Browns at home and then against the Dallas Cowboys on the road. Only one date has been announced for the throwback this season, but it’s possible that plans could change in the future.

Also in prime time, the Seahawks will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the retirement of the No. 12 jersey when they host the Green Bay Packers on Dec. 15. On Dec. 15, 1984, Seahawks president Mike MacCormick retired the No. 12 jersey in honor of the team’s devoted fans. Now, four decades later, the team will “celebrate the history of the greatest fans in the NFL.”

Seattle’s other game themes aren’t as closely tied to the team, but they should still be a lot of fun. The team will participate in numerous NFL initiatives throughout the season, including the league-wide kickoff on Sept. 8 (against the Denver Broncos), the Crucial Catch to benefit cancer survivors on Oct. 6 (against the New York Giants), Salute to Service on Nov. 24 (against the Arizona Cardinals) and Inspire Change on Dec. 22 (against the Minnesota Vikings). The Seahawks will also celebrate Halloween on Oct. 27 (against the Buffalo Bills) and the winter holidays on Dec. 22.

In addition, the Seahawks will host a series of fan events throughout the season, dubbed “For the 12s.” These will include Kids Day on Aug. 24 (against the Browns, preseason), La Gente and Hispanic Heritage on Sept. 22 (against the Miami Dolphins), 12 North in honor of Canadian fans on Oct. 27, the Corgi Cup on Nov. 3 (against the Los Angeles Rams) and finally, a simple evening of appreciation for fans on Dec. 15.

The 2024 season promises to be an exciting one in Seattle, and the Seahawks will make sure their fans have a great time.
