MASON CITY, Iowa – The North Iowa Bulls have proven to be one of the most dominant teams in Tier III junior hockey year after year, and the team is gearing up to celebrate its decade of dominance as its 10th Anniversary season begins. The Bulls have announced that “Decade of Dominance” will be their theme for the upcoming 2020-21 season, and are proud to release their commemorative 10th Anniversary logo. The team will also promote the social media hashtag #DecadeOfDominance throughout its 10th Anniversary season, and invite fans to do the same. The team will also continue its use of the secondary hashtag #BullieveYourEyes in highlighting the team’s spectacular off-ice achievements and on-ice play.
The club’s “Decade of Dominance” slogan is well-earned, with nearly 400 wins in their first nine seasons of operation, the most of any team in the North American Tier 3 Hockey League (NA3HL). The Bulls have also won seven division championships and three national championships in that time – each of those is also a league-high.
During the 2019-20 season, the Bulls successfully invited fans to #JoinOurStampede, seeing record crowds take in games at the new Mason City Multipurpose Arena in downtown Mason City. North Iowa drew an average of 1,585 fans per game in their new home after moving in at midseason, including three crowds of 2,000 or more. The Bulls won their league-best fourth NA3HL Organization of the Year award thanks to those record crowds, another West Division championship, and a staggering 17 college commitments and North American Hockey League tender signings.
“The upcoming season will celebrate and honor the Bulls’ longstanding tradition of excellence,” said North Iowa Bulls Owner Alberto Fernandez. “Our loyal fans deserve a season-long party, and that is exactly what we intend to do with all of our 10th Anniversary commemorative merchandise and special community events throughout the year.”
The Bulls’ 10th Anniversary logo prominently features the number 10 and the Bulls’ current blue-and-green color scheme, but also includes a red stripe around the top as a nod to the team’s original colors. The background colors behind the dates of 2011 and 2021 transition from red to blue to green, in recognition of the team’s progression from past to present. Secondary marks will be developed for 10th Anniversary merchandise, and revealed at a later date.
“We always look forward to the start of a new season,” said North Iowa Bulls director of business operations Kathee Corsello. “For our 10th year, we are especially excited to showcase and recognize all of
those who helped us get to where we are.”
The 2020-21 campaign is set to be the team’s first full season at the Mason City Multipurpose Arena. Season tickets are now on sale, with the NA3HL’s 2020-21 schedule to be released in the coming months.
