The New York Giants will pay homage to their historic past during two Legacy Games this coming season, the team announced Wednesday.

Against the Chicago Bears in Week 4 and the Washington Commanders in Week 13, the Giants will break out their classic red, white and blue uniforms coupled with the legendary navy “GIANTS” helmets (white facemask and all).

To help announce the return of these historic gems, the Giants recruited both running back Saquon Barkley and Pro Football Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor.

“This era obviously still holds a special place in the hearts of Giants fans,” Giants President John Mara said in a press release. “Our teams during that time featured legendary players, some of the best in our franchise’s history. And these uniforms remind us of what was accomplished through those years. We are thrilled to wear that uniform again.”

“This uniform represents a significant part of Giants history, and we have often been asked by our fans if we would ever wear it again,” Giants Chief Commercial Officer Pete Guelli said. “We started the uniform process with the NFL two years ago, and we’re excited to see it come to life for two games this season. These Legacy Games will connect generations of Giants fans.”

The one and only change to the legacy attire will come in the form of stitch embroidering on the inside collar of the jerseys where it will read, “Once a Giant, always a Giant.”

In addition to the uniforms, the Giants will also transform MetLife Stadium into Giants Stadium during those two games with throwback banners, branding, colors and Super Bowl XXI endzones.

During each of these two legacy games, the Giants will treat attending fans to throwback gameday pennant giveaways (first 30,000 fans). Other exclusive content will also be made available.
