Branding has been unveiled for the Fremont Moo, a new Fremont, NE-based summer-collegiate Expedition League team that will begin play in 2019. Along with the announcement of the team name, the official logo designed by Chip David of Dogwings.us has been unveiled. Team colors are purple, orange, black, and white.
“Cattle have an undeniable and profound impact in Nebraska,” said Team owner Chad Miller. “With cattle outnumbering people in the state, we set out to pay homage to these cattle in a fun and family friendly manner. Cattle Moo, so with this nickname every cattle breed in Nebraska can feel like they are a part of our team.”
Miller continued by saying, “So many fans offered wonderful ideas for team names during the discovery phase and during the team polls conducted on team social media pages. We considered many ideas throughout the process. In the end, the Moo team name offers the best opportunity for our brand and identity to stand out in a uniquely Nebraskan way. We are thrilled to bring the Moo to Fremont and Eastern Nebraska. There really isn’t another team name and logo like it.”
The Moo will play home games at a renovated Moller Field in Fremont. Moller Field is in the beginning phases of construction that will include new reserved and group seating areas in addition to amenities geared towards providing a great fan experience.
“Much planning has taken place over the past 6 months to develop a plan to make Moller Field an improved venue for the fans to spend summer nights watching great baseball and entertainment all while enjoying time in a fun and social environment. Fireworks, entertainment acts, and exciting on field fan contests will all be part of the show at Moller Field. The roster is beginning to take shape and we will share some of the player signings with fans in the near future as well.” Miller stated.
The Moo will begin their inaugural Expedition League season May 24, 2019. Team website, season ticket packages, and fan merchandise will be available in early January 2019.
