It’s been a dream for many for a long time.
The Charlotte Hornets are returning home after a decade-long hiatus. (see our story What is the Charlotte Hornets, really?)
The Charlotte Bobcats will unveil the new Charlotte Hornets brand identity tonight at halftime during their game against the Utah Jazz, in what is being called the first of many “Buzz City Nights”. Bobcats Chairman Michael Jordan will lead the unveiling event during a special on-court ceremony at halftime.
“We are excited to introduce to our fans the next step in our overall brand identity as we transition to the Hornets,” said Bobcats Sports & Entertainment President & COO Fred Whitfield. “Our fans were the driving force to bring back the Hornets name and we wanted to share this announcement with them. In addition to the logo unveil, we are excited to celebrate the first of our five Buzz City Nights. These nights will provide great opportunities to honor the rich history of Hornets basketball with our fans in unique ways.”
Tonight’s Buzz City Night will include Mercedes-Benz sponsoring a Buzz City long-sleeve T-shirt giveaway to the first 10,000 fans in attendance. Tipoff for the Bobcats-Jazz game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
