The Minnesota Vikings’ purple jerseys arguably are one of the most iconic in sports.

However, Minnesota, like many other teams, has decided to experiment with different color schemes and designs in recent years. On Thursday morning, the Vikings unveiled a new “Winter Warrior” jersey that will be used during the 2024 season.

The Vikings tweeted out a picture of star receiver Justin Jefferson donning the new digs as the initial step of this reveal.

Jefferson, one of the most prolific wide receivers in the entire NFL, recently signed a new contract extension that will keep him in Minnesota through the 2028 season. The four-year/$140 million contract kicks in during 2025.

Of course, Minnesota revealed a “Winter Whiteout” jersey back in 2022, but one common critique that fans had was that the helmet remained purple. It seems the franchise has listened to the fanbase with this design, changing to a white helmet for this rendition.

Those whiteout jerseys have been the alternates used for Minnesota’s Christmas Eve games in the past two seasons. The Vikings clinched the NFC North by defeating the New York Giants in those jerseys back in 2022.

This year, Minnesota doesn’t play on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, and they are on the road for Week 16 against the Seattle Seahawks. However, one potential game where we could see the players wear these “Winter Warrior” jerseys is their Week 15 matchup against the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. Another option would be Minnesota’s Week 17 home game against the Green Bay Packers.

These white jerseys will join “The Vikings Classic” (the jerseys worn in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season) as the alternate options for Minnesota this year.
