The New York Giants announced a special lineup of gameday themes for the 2022 home schedule, including two "Legacy Games" this fall that will feature the return of the classic blue uniforms inspired by the iconic teams of the '80s and '90s. The Giants will also welcome seven new members into the Ring of Honor with a special halftime ceremony during their Monday night game against the Dallas Cowboys on September 26.
"As part of our ongoing commitment to enhance the gameday experience, we are proud to announce our gameday theme schedule, which will give fans more ways to engage with the team" Chief Commercial Officer Pete Guelli said. "We are excited to build on previous collaborations but also innovate new themes like the Legacy Games to go along with the classic uniform launch."
In July, the Giants announced they are bringing back their classic blue uniforms from the '80s and '90s for two Legacy Games presented by Quest® during the 2022 season. They will wear them on Oct. 2 vs. Chicago and Dec. 4 vs. Washington as part of the Legacy platform, which also includes throwback MetLife Stadium branding and activations, a gameday collector's series pennant giveaway courtesy of Quest, a retail collaboration with Starter, and much more.
MetLife Stadium will be retrofitted with the Super Bowl XXI end zone design for the Legacy Games, complemented by wall wraps around the field to match the aesthetics from the time. The first 30,000 fans attending each game will also receive a collector's edition pennant, designed with the look from that era. Additionally, when fans scan their tickets upon entry, they will become eligible to receive a complimentary legacy-themed NFT.
The Giants will kick off their home schedule with a Week 2 visit from the Carolina Panthers on Sept. 18, when fans will receive a rally towel presented by Pepsi. The following week on Monday Night Football against the rival Cowboys, fans will receive a second rally towel presented by PNC as the Giants will also wear their all-white Color Rush uniforms.
In Week 10 against the Houston Texans, the Giants are honoring Salute to Service, a year-round effort to Honor, Empower and Connect our nation's service members, veterans, and their families. It is grounded in deep partnership with nonprofits and organizations that support the military community and the United States across the world. Fans in attendance will receive a special Salute to Service scarf, presented by Ford.
