Pro Soccer: Name the Team Contest AnnouncedSeptember 30th, 2008 by cstark
Got any ideas for a name for the new professional soccer team that’s coming to Bremerton? The United Soccer Leagues Professional Developmental League franchise, owned by Robin Waite, is scheduled to open in the spring of 2009. Here’s a press release the team sent out to area media today:
Bremerton, Wash. – Today, a new, professional soccer club is born in Kitsap County, Wash. Located primarily across Puget Sound from downtown Seattle, Kitsap is home to over 300,000 residents. The new franchise will be the first-ever, fully professional soccer team to call Kitsap its home – and most likely the first-ever fully professional sports franchise based on the peninsula itself.
“The franchise has been approved by the USL commissioner and we have secured a fantastic home at Bremerton HS Memorial Stadium. What we need now is for the people of Kitsap help us name our team,” said owner Robin Waite. “This is only the first step of many – team name, team colors, sponsors, suppliers… It’s a very long list – but this is indeed a very exciting time for all of us in Kitsap.”
To submit entries, please log on to www.kitsapsoccerclub.com now. The club will accept submissions until midnight Oct. 25, 2008.
