FORT WORTH, TX – The Panther City Lacrosse Club revealed their home and away uniforms for their inaugural season this evening at an event at Cowtown Brewing Co. in Fort Worth. President/CEO, Greg Bibb, General Manager/Vice President of Lacrosse Operations, Bob Hamley, Panther City Head Coach Tracey Kelusky and forwards Phil Caputo and Charlie Kitchen were in attendance and helped debut the uniforms to a crowd of community dignitaries, team partners, season-ticket holders and media members. Photos of the jerseys are attached for use.
“Tonight is a special night for us as we debut our Panther City uniforms for our inaugural season,” President/CEO Greg Bibb said. “We can’t wait to see a packed Dickies Arena with the stands full of Panther City jerseys and gear. I hope our fans take great pride in these uniforms as they symbolize everything that is great about Texas and our home city of Forth Worth!”
The team’s primary logo, the panther head, is featured prominently in the center of the jersey to pay homage to Fort Worth’s nickname, Panther City, which was adopted in the late 1800s and has remained since as a part of Fort Worth’s rich and dynamic history. Atop the panther head, the red star represents the team’s home state, the Lone Star State of Texas. The arched line above the star and panther head represents an architectural element that is prevalent throughout Fort Worth. On the shoulders of the jerseys, the team’s secondary logo is featured, which is the head of a lacrosse stick with the open mouth of the panther. The team’s shorts will feature another mark of the team, the interlocking ‘P’ and ‘C’ of Panther City.
“Our goal in creating these uniforms was to create something that our players and our fans were proud to wear at our games and around North Texas,” Panther City General Manager Bob Hamley said. “The bold designs specifically will mimic our attitude and gritty style of play we display on the field. This is just another exciting step for the club as we get closer to hitting the field in December.”
The club also announced that they will make their inaugural home debut at Dickies Arena on Friday, December 10. Opponent and timing will be announced at a later date. The team is scheduled to play nine home games at the state-of-the-art Dickie’s Arena. Fans looking for more information regarding tickets can visit PantherCityLax.com or call 833-467-2529.
