Out with the new, in with the old. The Los Angeles Chargers announced Tuesday that they will return to their powder blue jerseys for home games during the 2019 season. The look dates back to the 1960s and 1970s but has been limited to occasional uses since the end of the 1974 season.

The decision comes one year before the Chargers move into their new stadium in Inglewood, Calif. "I've talked to our fans, and they love the uniforms and the colors," Chargers executive A.G. Spanos told reporters. "They love the lightning bolt. It's truly iconic. It's very special, and we have a great history.

"When you look at players like LaDainian Tomlinson, Dan Fouts, Junior Seau and on and on, I think it's important to keep that tradition going." The Chargers are 4-0 under head coach Anthony Lynn when they wear the powder blue uniforms, according to ESPN.
