Silverbacks launch fan contest for new logo

ATLANTA — After letting fans decide the 2012 team's jersey design and whether to rename the club, the Atlanta Silverbacks have announced a fan contest to design a new logo.

"I'm excited to see what the fans come up with," Silverbacks chairman Boris Jerkunica said. "I think we have some really creative people in our community, so I'd encourage all of them to participate."

Fans can submit an entry to the contest through Dec. 3 by sending a design to pr@atlantasilverbacks.com. Entries will be judged by Likes on the team's Facebook page, www.facebook.com/atlantasilverbacks, through Dec. 3.

The logo with the most likes will move on to a final round of voting against the current logo and a new one designed by the club. Voting in the final round will go through Jan. 2.

If a fan's entry wins the contest, he or she will receive two season tickets, a team-signed jersey and dinner with coach Brian Haynes, GM Andy Smith and a player of the winner's choice.
