The Florida Panthers organization today announced that the NHL team's 20th anniversary will be celebrated with a special 20th anniversary logo.
In addition to the new logo, the team promises a "host of fan recognition and interactive opportunities." The Panthers celebrations will include a tribute to original season seat holders, giveaways, collectible merchandise, a themed in-game presentation, and "visits from heroes of the Panthers' past." A new center-hung scoreboard will also make its debut at the BB&T Center.
“The Florida Panthers 20th Anniversary Season is going to be a special one for our fans, partners, supporters, staff, players, coaches, and the entire South Florida community,” said Michael Yormark, president of the Panthers. “From the franchise’s inception, to the 1996 Eastern Conference Championship, to our most recent Division title, there is a wonderful history that we are excited to celebrate, while also honoring our incredible fans for two decades of loyal and passionate support.”
Further details of the Panthers' 20th anniversary celebration will be announced on NHL draft day, June 30. The team will be integrating its new logo into a season-long marketing campaign on TV, in newspapers, and online.
