In 2020, the Green Bay Packers did not wear an alternate uniform. The team stuck to its classic green and gold color scheme throughout the season, choosing not to wear the blue-and-yellow classic uniform that the team adorned for one home game per season from 2015 to 2019.

However, that will change in 2021. In his monthly Q&A post, team president Mark Murphy confirmed that the team will have a new alternate set this fall. Murphy also indicated the primary color of the uniforms and the team's plans:

"We will wear a historic, third uniform at one home game this season. While we're not ready to fully introduce the uniforms, I can say that they'll include a shade of the color green."

Murphy further said that the team will reveal the new sets later this summer.

During Murphy's tenure as president, the Packers have had two different throwback uniforms, both featuring the team's original blue and yellow colors. The first featured a navy jersey with numbers inside a yellow circle on the front and brown pants, modeled after the Acme Packers' 1929 uniforms. The more recent evoked memories of the Packers' threads from the late 1930s and 1940s, with the yellow shoulder yoke above a navy body.

The last throwback uniform was announced at the Packers' 2015 shareholders meeting, and they could take the same approach with this year's announcement.
