    Shamrock Series Helmets Announced

    Notre Dame - The University of Notre Dame will celebrate its Shamrock Series football matchup Saturday against the University of Maryland by wearing specially-designed helmets when the Irish take the field for their 7:30 p.m. EST game at FedExField in Landover, Md., to be televised by NBC Sports.

    Created in partnership with adidas, the Shamrock Series helmets are covered in 24-carat gold leaf and feature green shamrocks on each side and a leprechaun decal on the back. Handcrafted with meticulous detail, the gold-leaf helmets combine Notre Dame's rich football heritage with the program's bright future. The helmets have been handcrafted by Troy Lee Designs of Corona, Calif.

    This marks the first in a series of uniform features that will be utilized for Notre Dame's Shamrock Series contests. After the 2011 game at FedExField, the Shamrock Series in 2012 moves to Soldier Field in Chicago for a game against Miami. In 2013 the Shamrock Series matchup against Arizona State will be played at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The Irish will showcase uniform variations in their annual Shamrock Series games but otherwise will wear their standard uniforms the rest of the season.

    "Notre Dame football has one of the most iconic looks in college football and to celebrate the Shamrock Series, our team wanted to create a special new element for their uniforms for Saturday's game," said Mark Daniels, director of football for adidas.

    Beyond the new helmets, the Irish jerseys and pants for the game against Maryland Saturday will be identical to those worn a year ago at Yankee Stadium against Army - including green adidas TECHFIT jerseys. New for the Maryland matchup, the Irish will wear adidas adizero gloves featuring a gold palm and adjoining shamrock logo plus white adidas cleats.

    The Shamrock Series games for 2011 and 2012 are presented by Sprint.

    This Helmet is Sick!!! I like having Shamrock series that way we can still stick with our look yet from time to time throughout the year, we can change it up. This will look sweet does anyone have a shamrock glove pic. That sounds pretty sweet!
    Cheers! Crasher

    I am fine with it as long as they only do one offs once a year. I don't want this and then another game like Michigan.
