INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Indiana Pacers will sport a new look this year for select games.

According to the Pacers Twitter account, they plan to wear Hickory jerseys for the 2015-2016 season for select home games.

The uniforms are part of a unique collaboration with MGM and the Indiana Pacers to bring the story of “Hoosiers” to the NBA floor.

The Pacers say the tribute will be an “inspiration to fans everywhere that no matter how improbable the challenge may be amazing things can be accomplished through teamwork, determination, heart and hustle.”

Pacers President Larry Bird released the following statement:

“Our team will be honored to wear the Hickory uniforms because of the attention it will bring to the storied history of Indiana basketball and the success of the movie. ‘Hoosiers’ takes us all back to a special place and time.”

The games the jersey will be worn at were not yet announced.
