Introducing the 2021/22 Wildcats Indigenous Round Jersey!
This jersey was designed by Wadjuk Noongar man, artist Kevin Bynder.
A basketball enthusiast and lifelong Wildcats fan, Bydner chose to tell the story of the club’s 40 years of history through his art.
“I’ve been an artist for round about 20 years now. I just love creating and designing, and putting my culture out there through my artwork,” he said.
“I’m a big Wildcats fan, I love all my Perth teams, but I especially love my basketball. I’ve played basketball all my life. I’ve always wanted to design for the Wildcats, so when I had the opportunity, I was pretty stoked."
“I decided to make the overall story of this design about the history of the Wildcats, but through my art.”
The jersey showcases the club’s humble beginnings and the people who brought NBL basketball to WA.
It honours Wadjuk people and the club’s players and staff from the last four decades and celebrates its greatest successes in its 10 NBL championships and five NBL MVP awards.
Coupled with the history of the team, the uniform also pays respect to the land in which it calls home.
