adidas and the University of Notre Dame unveiled new TECHFIT football uniforms for the Fighting Irish's game Oct. 6 against the Miami Hurricanes at Soldier Field in Chicago for the Shamrock Series.
Notre Dame's new adidas TECHFIT football uniform is a modern take on the classic blue jersey and features gold metallic numbers and IRISH in a Celtic font. The bright gold helmet is split with a blue section highlighting a large white Leprechaun graphic. Notre Dame's gold pants feature a blue stripe on the left leg and the updated Leprechaun graphic. The team's adidas TECHFIT base layer features gold numbers on the sleeves and the Leprechaun graphic on chest. The updated interpretation of the classic Notre Dame Leprechaun logo also appears on the team's adizero Smoke gloves.
"Notre Dame's Shamrock Series is one of the most highly anticipated games of the season and this year marks the first time we've created a head to toe new look for the Irish," said Mark Daniels, director of football for adidas America. "To celebrate the historic matchup at Soldier Field, we worked with the Irish to create a bold new uniform that honors the school's rich football tradition and bright future in a modern way."
Notre Dame's adidas TECHFIT jersey features multiple innovations to reduce the weight of the jersey by 30 percent, including a streamlined fit, new fabric, reduced seams and an ultra lightweight numbering system. In addition, the adidas TECHFIT jersey keeps players cool with integrated ventilation zones and moisture management fabric. Reduced seams and a restriction-free, high-stretch collar design increases range of motion to support player agility and speed.
