The 2022 McDonald’s All-American basketball games, set for March 29 at Wintrust Arena in Chicago, are right around the corner.

McDonald’s on Thursday revealed the jerseys for this year’s games, where the best high school basketball players across the country will take center stage. The East and West jerseys were designed in partnership with adidas and designer Eric Emanuel.

“I’m so honored to re-imagine the iconic McDonald’s All American games jersey for the 45th anniversary,” Emanuel said in a statement. “For this year’s design, I wanted to pay tribute to the rich legacy of the Games while nodding to the future of basketball. With adidas and McDonald’s, we’ve crafted a signature look that pays homage to the Games’ heritage, including vintage elements inspired by McDonald’s All American gear through the decades, with modern touches for today’s player. We designed with the players in mind, and I can’t wait to see all the work displayed on the court next week in Chicago.”
