L.I. Nets mascot design contest


The Long Island Nets are looking to their fans to create the team’s first-ever mascot. Fans are invited to design and submit mascot concepts that represent what it means to be a Long Islander and that reflect the team’s family values of loyalty, aspiration and legacy. 

The mascot will serve as a Long Island Nets brand ambassador both on-and-off the court beginning with the 2018-19 season. The team’s brand ambassador will bring entertainment and energy to the crowd at home games and will be active in the community, attending school events, hospital visits, basketball clinics, and more. 

“Our new team mascot will play an important role in bringing a greater team presence into the community,” said Alton Byrd, Vice President of Business Operations, Long Island Nets.  “We want our mascot to embody the essence of Long Island and we believe that the best way to do that is to ask for creative input from our fans.” 

Fans who are interested in submitting designs should follow the below guidelines for submission: 

·         Designs must include the Long Island Nets logo

·         Designs must incorporate the team colors: red, white, blue

·         The drawing must be realistic enough to produce a costume 

If your submission is selected, you will receive a trip to the 2019 NBA G League Showcase (location to be announced), complete with tickets, airfare and hotel accommodations for two. Please submit your designs to info@longislandnets.com with the subject line “Long Island Nets Mascot Competition.” Submissions will be accepted now until May 1, 2018.
