"Mud-brown is very practical but we'd like something a little more striking."
-- Puddlemere team manager Philbert Deverill to the Daily Prophet (DP1)
Small feature article appearing on the Sports page of the Daily Prophet (DP1).
Team manager Philbert Deverill told the Daily Prophet that the Puddlemere United team will be changing away from mud-brown coloured robes, as the team needed "a change of image". He denied that chameleon cloaks were being considered (DP1).
In the book Quidditch Through the Ages, it states that Puddlemere United wear navy-blue robes (QA7). There is no mention of these mud-brown robes (DP1) being changed to a distinctly different shade of blue from navy - kingfisher blue (DP2).
While the date printed on DP1 is 31 July 1998, the timeframe for these events is 1992-1993.
