As a show of strength and solidarity, the Chargers players are urging fans to unite in white as they did a year ago in the season opener and wear white to make it a WHITE HOT MONDAY NIGHT on Monday Night Football, Sept. 9 against the Houston Texans at Qualcomm Stadium. The team will be wearing white pants and white jerseys together to open the season for the second year in a row.
“To have our fans with us wearing all white and being loud will definitely help us on defense,” said safety
“I can’t wait to see every fan in all white. It will be so cool to see a full stadium and everyone in white. I love the all-whites,” said linebacker
“Seeing the fans in all white will be sweet. To look up from the field and see a sea of white; it will be big for us to come out and feed off the fans’ energy,” said tight end
The Chargers believe this move is another opportunity for the fans in the stands to make a tangible impact on the outcome of the game.
“We’re always looking to do anything we can that will give us an additional edge in the game. The home opener is a chance for the fans to make an immediate impact on our season,” said Chargers CEO A.G. Spanos. “Imagine a full stadium all in white, unified behind the team dressed all in white. It will be loud. It will be impressive. It will be intimidating. And it will give our players a huge emotional boost and even stronger home-field advantage.”
