The new icon tells the story written by one of the NFL’s oldest franchises over the last century, featuring a shield designed in the shape of the team’s first home, the Polo Grounds, as well as zeroes in the shape of their former home, Giants Stadium, and eight football laces to honor the club’s eight NFL championships. The logo also includes a depiction of a Giants quarterback ready to fire a pass downfield, an image inspired by the team’s classic logo showing a Giant throwing a pass over the skyline of New York City.

“I first saw the Giants play in person in the early 1960s when my father would take me to games at Yankee Stadium,” Giants EVP and chairman Steve Tisch said in a statement released by the team Monday. “Going to Giants games was a wonderfully magical ritual.
