THE APARTMENTS – Georgia Tech football will debut their new adidas Tech Gold jerseys for Saturday’s game against The Citadel.
The Tech Gold jersey is the fifth football jersey unveiled by Georgia Tech since adidas began producing Yellow Jackets uniforms prior to last season. The jackets have previously had two white adidas jerseys (one with Tech Gold numbers and one with blue numbers) and a blue adidas jersey. On October 5 against North Carolina, Georgia Tech will wear onyx gray jerseys in honor of children battling illnesses and injuries at Children’s Healthcare in Atlanta, as part of adidas’ 2019 Strategy Uniform Series.
The Yellow Jackets frequently wore gold jerseys at home in the 1990s and 2000s and they are often associated with legendary jackets such as Heisman Trophy finalist Joe Hamilton and fellow College Football Hall of Famer Calvin Johnson. . The last time Georgia Tech wore gold jerseys in a game was in the 2016 TaxSlayer Bowl, where the Jackets beat Kentucky, 33-18.
For Saturday’s game against the Citadel, the Tech Gold jerseys will be paired with white helmets, featuring a gold interlocking GT logo and gold and navy stripes, and white pants.
