The Atlanta Silverbacks will give fans the unique opportunity to design the pro soccer team's uniforms, the club announced Tuesday.

The winning uniform will be selected based on the number of "likes" it receives on the Silverbacks' Facebook page. The selected uniform will be worn during the 2012 season.

Fans can use design templates available at www.facebook.com/atlantasilverbacks and submit entries to contest@atlantasilverbacks.com. The five entries that receive the most votes by Sept. 2 will make the finals, which will be voted on from Sept 5-22. The winner will be unveiled Sept. 24 at the Silverbacks' final home game of the regular season.

Official contest rules are available at www.atlantasilverbacks.com.
