ATLANTA – From album posters to street art, Atlanta is vibrant, loud and unapologetic and the music scene is unlike anything else in the world. Defined by the city’s unmatched impact on Hip-Hop and R&B, the Atlanta Dream is paying homage to Atlanta’s culture and sound with the first of the team’s five “ATL Days,” which kicked off last Friday. In that game, Dream players wore their new Nike Rebel Edition jerseys. It was the first of five games in which the team will don the special uniforms.
Long known as the city of rebels who have redefined the confines of music, the Rebel Edition jersey is redefining the traditional uniform look to make the Dream stand out like rebels on the court. The legacy of the scene’s legendary female recording artists is celebrated with vibrant colors, strapping side-striping and confident lettering – a salute to the swagger, creativity and iconicity of ATL’s most influential female musicians. For a look at the Dream’s 2021 uniforms, including the Rebel Edition, check out the team’s #DoItForTheDream season intro video and photo gallery.
In addition to Friday night’s game, the Dream players will don the Rebel Edition uniforms at home games throughout the season:
- Saturday, June 26 at 7 p.m. ET vs. the New York Liberty
- Sunday, July 11 at 5 p.m. ET vs. the Indiana Fever
- Thursday, August 26 at 7 p.m. ET vs. the Las Vegas Aces
- Thursday, September 16 at 7 p.m. ET vs. the Los Angeles Sparks
The Rebel Edition jersey is one of three commemorative Dream uniforms created in collaboration with Nike and the WNBA to tell H.E.R. story during the 2021 season. The Heroine, Explorer and Rebel jersey trifecta conveys a message around the unique characteristics of Atlanta and highlights the power, potential and “unapologetic” attitude of the WNBA athlete.
