The pregame celebration will include Giants players and coaches taking the field prior to the game by running through a fan gauntlet formed by 90 season ticketholders.
The National Anthem will be performed by the West Point Band. The Giants and the NFL’s 31 other teams will recognize the 200th anniversary of Francis Scott Key’s writing of the “Star-Spangled Banner.” The Presentation of Colors will be by the Joint Honor Guard. A full-field American flag will be unfurled by season ticketholders and members of the FDNY, NYPD, and Port Authority Police departments. There will be a moment of silence in a tribute to 9/11 victims.
Giants legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer Frank Gifford will serve as the Giants Honorary Captain for the coin toss. As fans enter their seating sections, they are invited to tap and touch the “Giants Pride” signs, the iconic sign Giants players touch before exiting the locker room to take the field. The signs will be posted at every entrance to the seating areas throughout the stadium.
