Charlotte Bobcats to unveil new 'Hornets' logo at Dec. 21 home game vs. Jazz

The Charlotte Bobcats plan to unveil their new “Hornets” logo at halftime of the Dec. 21 home game against the Utah Jazz. This is the next step in their rebranding to the Hornets, which takes force at the start of next season.

The team previously revealed, in an interview with the Observer, that it will adopt the Hornets’ traditional teal-and-purple as primary colors next season. Uniforms will be the next step, sometime over the next few months.

Bobcats owner Michael Jordan will do the logo unveiling at a halftime ceremony for the game, which starts a half hour later – 7:30 p.m. – than most Bobcats home games at Time Warner Cable Arena.

The game against the Jazz is the first of five “Buzz City”-themed giveaway nights. The team will distribute long-sleeve “Buzz City” T-shirts that night to the first 10,000 fans through the doors. Later giveaways will include bobbleheads for former Charlotte Hornets Dell Curry, Muggsy Bogues and Kelly Tripucka.

Been a season ticket holder since day one.
I must have 40 tee shirts, I mean rags.
Those shirts are made to fit women and children.
Come on Bobcats, how about a new policy along with the new name. Shirts in different sizes!!!!

Is that wordmark on the bobcats website where they show the bobbleheads "new" or is that an old style I'm not familiar with?

@someguy- I don't recognize and I hope that's not the "new" font.

I'm excited about the 21st. Hopefully we will see some new merchandise with the new logo soon.

This is exciting! Can't wait for the Hornets to return and can't wait to be at the first game when the HIVE WILL BE ALIVE!!!

The sooner this city gets rid of that lame name the better. The only nickname that is worse is Pelicans.

The Hornets are back and we are making a playoff run...too good to be true. Need more games like the Warriors last night. That was wild.

It will be cool to see Kemba in a Hornets uniform. He has to be one of the most enjoyable players o watch in the NBA. Maybe it is his size or his non stop motor, but he is just a blast to watch. That performance last night was amazing. Big shot after big shot. Running down loose balls, steals, he just leaves it all out there.

If Kemba is so fun to watch wearing a Bobcats uniform, why would he need to wear a Hornets one to be enjoyable?
