Celebrating its return to the continental elite, French champion Limoges CSP unveiled new throwback uniforms on Monday night. To commemorate the club's glory days and winning the 1993 Euroleague title, Limoges has decided to wear yellow jerseys for its home games during the upcoming Turkish Airlines Euroleague season.

This season marks Limoges’s return to the Euroleague competition for the first time since 1998. The new home uniforms that the team will sport are the same color as the ones Limoges wore in that historic 1993 campaign. That spring, 21 years ago, Limoges became the first - and to this day only - French club to win a continental crown, by edging Benetton Treviso 59-55 in an epic championship game in Athens, Greece.

The new yellow jerseys bear green stripes and green numbers, while the away jerseys are reversed; they are green with yellow stripes.
