NEW YORK UNVEILS TITANS AS TEAM NAME
Team to play games at MSG & Nassau Coliseum
In July, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced that an online poll would be conducted to name the team. Over 7000 fan entries were received. "The overwhelming choice of the fans is Titans." said Daniel. "The image of New York is one of power. The name Titans captures that."
The logo was created by Adrenalin, Inc. "As members of one of the fastest growing leagues in all of sports, it's not surprising that the New York Titans ownership places a strong priority on branding," said Daniel Price, CEO of Adrenalin. "Our collective goal was to develop an organizational brand that combined the dynamic excitement of New York with the aggressive mentality of the sport of lacrosse. The resulting name and logo thus includes a warrior's steel helmet with the city's majestic skyline."
Adrenalin created the brands for three other NLL teams: The Colorado Mammoth, Arizona Sting and revamped the Philadelphia Wings. Adrenalin has also developed the brands for the Phoenix Coyotes of the NHL and the Chicago Fire of the MLS.
The Titans announced today the schedule for the team's inaugural season, beginning in January of 2007. The Titans schedule includes four home games at Madison Square Garden and four home games at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
"We're very pleased with the schedule for the New York Titans inaugural season," said Daniel. "We have the best of both worlds. We will play four games at Nassau Coliseum, right in the heart of lacrosse country on Long Island, and we will play four games at the world's most famous arena in Madison Square Garden. Catching the intense action of professional indoor lacrosse will be convenient and affordable to fans in the tri-state area."
