Flyers unveil new Friday marks

The original Schaumburg Flyers logo is updated for Friday night games and special events.The Schaumburg Flyers (independent; Northern League) unveiled a new Friday night black logo and jerseys for the upcoming season at Alexian Field.

“Players play better if they look and feel good. I love the black look, and I’m excited for the new image this season,” said manager Mike Busch. “You never know, if we get hot and win a couple Fridays in a row, we might pull these out a little more often. I’m a superstitious guy and I’m all for whatever helps us win ballgames.”

The new logo concept is just one of many changes gracing Alexian Field this season, including a hot tub and tiki bar, as well as an improved kid zone and remodeled Schaumburg Club.

The new logo was designed by Matt Palamateer at Palmateer Design. The Flyers chose Palmateer’s design from a field of over 40 artists who submitted new logo ideas to the club.

The Flyers will sport this new logo with a fresh uniform design as well. The new black design will be work on the field on Friday home games and for special occasions. The Flyers will stick with gold top, white pants and blue cap for all other home games. The blue sleeveless jersey with blue cap will be the uniform of choice for all Northern League road games. The Flyers eliminated the blue cap with the orange bill from the uniform rotation in 2009.
