The Tulsa Roughnecks unveiled the new team's official colors, logos and uniforms on Tuesday. The Roughnecks will take the field in the spring of 2015 in USL PRO with the primary colors of orange and navy blue in their home and road kits.

The new logo features an iconic oil derrick set on top of a bold placement of Tulsa Roughnecks FC, the team's official name. The renewed Tulsa Roughnecks FC logo is a tribute to Tulsa's legacy as the "Original Oil Capital of the World” and to the hard-working roughnecks who put Tulsa on the map. The oil derrick, the centerpiece of our new crest, stands for our strength, tenacity, hard work, determination and power, the team said. The navy blue and Roughneck orange make up our official team colors and represent the loyal Tulsa community and our electric fans.

As with the team's overall brand identity, the team's marks and branding were designed in collaboration with Brandiose, a sports-branding company; and Walsh Branding, a local Tulsa branding and marketing agency. Both Brandiose and Walsh have a long history of working with teams and organizations to develop brands and their identities.

The team will have three main uniform combinations, with the third kit paying tribute to the “original” soccer Roughnecks and their 1983 North American championship, the only major sports title ever for the city of Tulsa.

At home, Tulsa will wear orange tops with the option of combining them with either orange or white shorts.

On the road, the Roughnecks will feature navy blue jerseys with either navy or white shorts.

Both the home and road jerseys will also feature a lightly sublimated star on the backs with the number 83 inset. It is to honor the original Roughnecks 1983 championship in the old North American Soccer League.

The alternate kits are replicas of the original kits that the original Roughnecks wore in their inaugural season in 1978. The alternate kits feature the original colors of red, white and black.

The uniforms will be white with a pair of red stripes surrounding a black stripe, running vertically on both the jersey and shorts. The jerseys will have red numbers with a black outline. Sublimated lightly on the back will be the original Roughnecks logo with a roughneck soccer player in front of an oil derrick.

It is anticipated that all three versions will eventually feature a sponsor logo or message on the fronts.

“Our Roughnecks are a new team in the USL PRO league, and we wanted to give it a new and modern look,” said Roughneck General Manager Mike Melega. “At the same time, we wanted to pay heritage to the original Roughnecks who helped popularize the game of soccer in our city, and we feel like we have done that with our third kit.”
