Many sports teams face the same dilemma, how to appeal to younger fans while retaining the favour of the die-hard’s who keep the club going?

The Grizzlies confirmed the news via their official Twitter as they re-tweeted this message from Minor League Promos:

The move may come as a surprise, but essentially its a win-win situation for the Grizzlies, with the TMNT jerseys appealing to young kids and nostalgic adults who loved the original show in the 90s.
The club’s official account also announced that the jerseys will be part of a charity auction which will take part in August.
Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo must be thrilled.
