A new school year brings a new season for the Concordia Stinger varsity teams. This year, each team will also be wearing a new uniform, as the traditional Stinger bee logo will no longer be on any of the athlete’s attire. This comes after the university has decided it was time to give its athletics a facelift.

Each team will begin wearing the new logo—which will still have its usual yellow and burgundy—on their new uniforms when they each start their own seasons.

“We wanted our new image to transcend sports and competition,” says university president Alan Shepard. “We also had a unique opportunity to further strengthen the already deep sense of pride that exists within the Concordia community.”

You can see the new uniforms for the first time on Friday, Sept. 4, when the Concordia Stingers football team host the Sherbrooke Vert et Or at 7 p.m.
