The Arizona Wildcats currently have a uniform contract with Nike. We have 19 football uniforms in our database for the Arizona Wildcats and are working to add more to Uniform Critics. Feel free to contact us with any uniform designs for this team that we may be missing.
That’s right, the Arizona Wildcats added a copper shell to their arsenal of helmets during the 2012 season, transitioning into one of Nike’s premiere programs for apparel and design in the PAC-12.
The color correlates to the state’s mining past and took six months to develop. It’s the biggest change to Arizona’s shells since the Wildcats debuted a white helmet in 1981. Arizona also unveiled a red alternate helmet in 2012, the first time the Wildcats have donned bright red shells since 1980.
White and navy helmets seem to be the go-to looks, but now Arizona has four different choices on gamedays like their rival Arizona State Sun Devils — also a Nike program.
Arizona’s block “A” logo made its first appearance in 1977, an elongated later with a shadow tail. It was altered to its current look in 1990, and then shrunk 14 years later.
On the field, the Wildcats’ latest uniform overhaul from Nike came in 2010 when Arizona dropped stripes and piping altogether for solid colors on jerseys. The school’s block “A” logo is at the crest of each top and numerals appear on the sleeves. The pants feature two contrasting stripes that fade (depending on the pant color) at the hip.
Currently, Arizona has three different tops — white, navy and red — and the same colors for pants. Since 2010, Arizona’s white alternate helmets have included a red stripe and a navy stripe down the middle. Arizona’s current deal with the swoosh expires in 2014.
