The reverse retro program may be getting a reboot.

Multiple sources have told The Athletic that the alternate jersey program could be set to return during the 2022-23 season, which would be a welcome sight for many teams and executives who spoke on the matter.

“I can say we are pushing for it,” one Western Conference executive said. “We’ve been pretty vocal about that with the league, it’s something I think would be great for all of us.”

“It’s gonna happen,” an Eastern Conference executive said. “It’s coming back, I’m not sure if the league is ready to make that official. But I don’t see how they don’t do it.”

It wouldn’t be the same jerseys that were sold during the first rendition of reverse retro, it would be another new look, and one team source already said their team has already designed and knows what the next reverse retro jersey would look like.

The original reverse retro program ran during the 2020-21 COVID-shortened season, which also featured mostly empty buildings across the league. The league’s decision to stick with the original program length, just one season, drew criticism from teams that felt the true financial impact of reverse retro was neutered.

“We should have been able to use it into this season, selling jerseys and other merchandise are driven heavily by in-person traffic at games, without fans at games, we couldn’t sell nearly as much as we would have,” one team executive said. “And if the team is no longer going to wear it this season, you have reverse retro jerseys that fans bought that they, in theory, will never get to wear while the team wears them.”

Some teams had a more positive experience with reverse retro than others. For some teams, the designs were a hit, and meeting demand was actually a struggle, while some of the more bland ones, or ones that missed the mark, struggled to sell and there were some teams that in hindsight were wishing for a re-do.

“I think some teams really didn’t get it or what it was supposed to be,” one league source said. “We had some great designs, ones that really clicked. Other teams, they missed the mark.”

One team executive, whose jersey sold well, said he actually liked the reverse retro program being a one year thing.
