We’ve known for a while now that the Broncos have an alternate helmet in the works. Now the team has let us know when we’ll finally get to see it.
In an announcement posted today on the team’s website, the Broncos said:
The team will unveil the helmet on Tuesday, July 25, and the new helmet will then be featured in fan-facing promotions during Denver’s Back Together Weekend practice on Saturday, July 29. The Broncos will bring back the alternate helmet display showcase at the team’s final training camp practice, which is scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 17.
Although the announcement didn’t mention the alternate helmet’s color, earlier hints have suggested that it will be white. An additional hint may have come in a tweet that the Broncos posted today, showing an image that could be construed as breaking ice:

Whatever color the alternate helmet turns out to be, it will be worn only with the team’s Color Rush uniform, not with their primary uniforms.
The new helmet could be the first step in a significant visual overhaul for the Broncos. The team was sold to new ownership in 2022, and there have been indications that the new management team may scrap the team’s current look, in place since 1997, as soon as next year.
Late July is shaping up as a busy time for NFL uni news. In addition to the Broncos’ helmet unveiling on July 25, the Titans are expected to reveal their Oilers throwbacks on July 23.
