~The Green Bay Packers will wear their new alternate third uniform when they play the San Francisco 49ers at Lambeau Field on Dec. 5.

Jason Wied, the Packers’ vice president for administration and legal counsel said a colder date was chosen because the team wanted to make sure the jerseys weren’t uncomfortable in warmer temperatures.

The Packers will wear their new alternate third uniformed, modeled in March by linebacker Brad Jones, left, and wide receiver Jordy Nelson, in their Dec. 5 game against the 49ers at Lambeau Field.

The jersey will be similar to the one worn by Packers in the first decade of the team’s existence. The jersey will be navy blue with a gold circle in the middle that includes the player’s number. The pants and helmet will both be khaki colored. 

The NFL has approved the use of a third uniform and the Packers have the option of using it for home games over the next five seasons.
