MASON CITY, Iowa – The North Iowa Bulls have announced a change in their primary logo, jerseys and colors for the 2017-18 season. The new design is inspired after the “St. Patrick’s Day” jerseys worn by the Bulls for the start of the Central Division Playoffs last season. The new look comes after a great welcome and feedback from the fans, sponsors, and the community of Mason City. The new home and away jerseys will be unveiled at a later date.
Kathee Corsello, COO and Director of Administration, had this to say about the change: “We are always pleased when a specialty jersey design is well received by the fans and sponsors. Sometimes something as simple as a color change is enough to inspire a little excitement. This was definitely the case with our St. Patrick’s Day jerseys the team wore for the first round of playoffs last season. We have an impressive fan base that comes out game after game to support their team. We feel our fans follow our players, the team, and our coach not necessarily a color scheme. The color and logo change is just something fresh and new that we anticipate the fans embracing..”
General Manager and Head Coach, Todd Sanden also shared his thoughts on the change: “I am excited about the rebranding of the North Iowa Bulls. It gives us our own identity. The new colors are exciting and have proven to be a crowd pleaser. Be assured you can expect the same brand of hockey at the ‘Barn.’ There has been some positive evolution in our program in the last couple years. I feel the rebranding is also a positive and something to embrace. We are fortunate to have a great hockey team in a great hockey town! The color of the sweater will not change that a bit. I am looking forward to another incredible season that brings the Silver Cup back to the Barn!”
The Bulls begin their quest for the Silver Cup on the road for eight games starting at the Wisconsin Whalers, September 15th-16th, and return to Mason City, October 20th-21st for their Home Opener weekend, to take on the Whalers.
