Introducing The Flint City Bucks; Pro Soccer Returns To The 810
The Flint City Bucks unveiled a new logo along with the winner of their 'Name The Team' contest today.
According to a press release, more than 1,000 entries were submitted to name the team. Once the entries were narrowed down, Mindy Prusa of Whaley Children's Center worked with the Whaley kids to pick a winner.
The winning submission came from Flint resident, Kayce McClure.
The logo is more than just a team crest. There are so many references to the history of Flint and the Michigan Bucks. Team President Costa Papista talked about the importance of keeping the history alive.
It was important for us to immerse our team into the history of Flint. Retaining a part of the club's former name was also important to preserve the connection to a team that has been the most successful franchise in the history of the USL Two.
The explanation of the logo and it's tie ins to Flint can be found in the picture below.
The season starts on May 11th, and home games will be played at Atwood Stadium.
