SAN ANTONIO – The San Antonio Spurs are honoring the servicemen and servicewomen of the U.S. armed forces with new “camouflage-patterned” jersey tops and shorts modeled after the U.S. Army combat uniform.

On Wednesday, the Spurs said that the new Nike City Edition uniform will make its debut when they host the Philadelphia 76ers at home during a USAA Salute Night on Friday, Jan. 26. 

San Antonio -- also known as Military City USA -- fans who are active-duty military personnel and veterans can also enjoy up to 40 percent off the Salute Night tickets with a military ID on Jan. 26. 

The new silver-and-black camouflage uniforms feature the Spurs logo on the left side of the jersey, with the player’s number on the right side. 

Earlier this year, the Spurs showcased their white Association Edition, black Icon Edition and gray Statement Edition jerseys after the NBA announced a new partnership with Nike.
