Boston College unveiled new Irish-themed accessories for the Aer Lingus College Football Classic on Wednesday, providing fans with a glimpse into the Eagles’ clothing options for their season-opening game against Georgia Tech.

BC will wear Irish-themed cleats and gloves and alter their helmets for the game, which will be played September 3rd at Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

The BC cleats will be maroon with gold accents and will feature an Irish design in the pattern of the shoe. They’ll pair this with gloves featuring a similar Irish design. On one glove will be a Boston College Eagles logo, with the Irish harp on the other glove.

In addition, the Eagles will theme their helmets with an Irish style stripe in the middle as opposed to the solid maroon stripe they currently utilize.

The harp is a traditional Irish symbol and is used within the Irish coat of arms. It is also the symbol of Leinster, the province of Ireland where Dublin is located. The harp features prominently into the traditional flag of Leinster, which has a golden harp on a green background.

BC has also unveiled gear for purchase of the Boston to Ireland theme incorporated for fans.

The Eagles recently unveiled new uniforms for the 2016 season. The traditional maroon and gold color scheme is retained, though the uniform will have more gold on the arms with the stained glass motif now standardly incorporated throughout BC athletics.
