The Lehigh Valley IronPigs, in conjunction with the Philadelphia 76ers, are throwing back to the 1970's with special themed style jerseys the team will be wearing on Wednesday, August 21 against the Syracuse Mets.

This announcement comes on the same day that the 76ers unveiled their Classic Edition uniforms for the 2019-20 season. The IronPigs will wear similarly styled caps and uniforms during the late-August game (click here for tickets).

The 76ers will be "taking over" the game as they will be promoting their "classic" look of going back to the 1970's. A 76ers host and Dunk Squad will be leading fans between innings with contests fans are accustomed to seeing at a 76ers game. The Sixers Stixers will be performing, and 76ers legend World B. Free will be throwing out the first pitch and be available to meet fans during the game.

This special Brotherly Love game will feature a special cap raffle and jersey auction of the game worn 76ers gear.

Commemorative 76ers-themed merchandise is now available in the Majestic Clubhouse Store. Visit the store or ShopIronPigs.com to see the selection of 76ers-themed jerseys, caps and T-shirts.
