This AAF uniform matchup had fans so confused
The AAF is in its second week of play and has received a strong reception among sports fans, with many appreciating the improvements they’ve made from the NFL. But one area where the league failed was the uniform matchup in Sunday’s San Diego Fleet-Atlanta Legends game.
Atlanta’s colors are purple and yellow, while San Diego’s are black and yellow. The gold in the Legends’ pants and the yellow socks worn by the Fleet made things all the more confusing.
The first touchdown in @AAFFleet history is an 8-yard run by Ja'Quan Gardner!

The uniform combination led to many of the same observations from fans:
Atlanta and San Diego’s uniforms are awfully close to each other in color.

Atlanta and San Diego uniforms look too much alike

The AAF might want to look into more uniforms lol Atlanta and San Diego look so similar on the field.

I am enjoying the @TheAAF but they need to have a dark team and white team with the uniforms. San Diego and Atlanta look too similar.

Please tell the league they should spring for some away jerseys so we can avoid situations like this. It was not pleasant to watch on TV, and probably was difficult for the quarterbacks trying to target teammates.
