NBA 2020: The Golden State Warriors unveiled their Oakland Forever jersey. The jersey, presented by Rakuten will be the team’s new City Edition Nike jersey for the 2020-21 NBA Season.
The jerseys commemorate the team’s 47 seasons in Oakland by focusing on one of the most iconic and precious moments in franchise history – the We Believe era. It is inspired by the jerseys worn by the team from 1997-2010.
The era covered the celebrated “We Believe” playoff run in 2007 when the Warriors became the first eight-seed to defeat a one-seed in a best-of-seven playoff series with a 4-2 upset over the Dallas Mavericks.

“Oakland is and forever will be part of this franchise’s identity. The Oakland Forever campaign, in partnership with Rakuten, will deepen our ties and impact in Oakland through a dedicated focus on community efforts, advancing educational equity, and providing safe access to health and wellness resources,” said Warriors President and Chief Operating Officer Rick Welts.
Rakuten is the team’s first and only jersey partner to-date. It will develop an individual digital element to accompany the Oakland Forever campaign. All Warriors practice and game jerseys, both home and away, will continue to feature the Rakuten badge on the upper left corner.
