SAN ANTONIO – For years Spurs fans have asked for an official Fiesta-themed jersey and now it appears they are getting their wish.

A photo of what appears to be the new Spurs City Edition Jersey for the upcoming NBA season was leaked on social media on Friday afternoon.

The jersey is black and features teal, pink and orange striping under the San Antonio name script.

Spurs officials have not confirmed if these will be the official City Edition Jerseys, but said to stay tuned for an official announcement.

The jersey is similar to the warmup jacket and pants the team wore in the 1990s, and the colors used for the Alamodome court.

The team’s primary logo also featured the same color scheme.

The Spurs went away from the Fiesta look when they opened the AT&T Center in 2002.

For the past few years, the Spurs have used the camouflage themed jerseys as alternates to the traditional black road and white home jerseys.
