1974-75 World Football League - All teams

For the sake of the GUD's consistency, as the NFL changed for the 1974 season from the double-bar facemask to the first 'cage-style' facemask, the entire WFL has been altered to include the same style facemasks.

Also, teams with the broad central helmet stripe will now reflect that feature more prominently.



1975 Portland Thunder

1975 Thunder wore non-separated helmet stripes (as for the 1974 team) in the preseason only (1 game) and switched to separated helmet stripes for the regular season.
The pants for both pre- and regular seasons did NOT have the same striping pattern as the 1974 team. Stripes featured wide outer white stripes and a much thinner central green stripe.

The helmet logos of the 1974 Storm always have blue in the upper left portion of the logo on both sides of the helmets.
