In front of a full house at Hard Rock Café last night, Silverbacks Chairman Boris Jerkunica wasn’t just revealing the fan’s choice for the team’s name. He was also providing fans with their next opportunity to get involved in the team’s evolving brand.
The Silverbacks will run a logo design contest that will launch today on the team’s Facebook page, which is linked here. The club will accept logo design entries from fans over the course of the next 18 days. Anyone can participate, as long as they follow the official contest rules, which are available here.
The fan who designs the logo that advances to the final round will receive two (2) season tickets in the section of their choice, a team-signed jersey, and dinner out with Silverbacks Head Coach Brian Haynes, General Manager Andy Smith, and a player of their choice.
“I’m excited to see what the fans come up with,” said Silverbacks Chairman Boris Jerkunica. “I think we have some really creative people in our community, so I’d encourage all of them to participate.”
In the final round, the most popular fan logo will be pitted against other logos that the club will have designed. Fans will be able to visit atlantasilverbacks.com and vote on their favorite of the three final logos until January 2. The Silverbacks will then reveal the new logo at a party they will host the following week at a location that is still to be determined.
Should the new logo ultimately come from a fan, the designer will be recognized at halftime of the 2013 season opener.
