Rick LeLacheur isn't revealing his hand - but speculation suggests the Edmonton Eskimos will debut their third team jersey Friday night at Commonwealth Stadium.

"I guess you will have to be there to see," said the club's chief operating officer when asked if the team will be wearing new duds during their rematch with the Calgary Stampeders. "I think (fans) should be in their seats early ... before the team introductions."

The Stamps unveiled their new third jersey last week, wearing the black/red top during the Labour Day Classic, which is the most anticipated game of the season in Cowtown.

The return engagement four days later at Commonwealth is the most anticipated and attended game of the season for the Eskimos.

In fact, the two largest crowds in the club's history - 62,444 in 2003 and 61,481 in 2002 - have come against the Stampeders immediately after Labour Day.

Game time Friday is 7 p.m.
