The Long Island Nets are looking to their fans to design a special jersey the team will wear during the upcoming 2019-20 season. As part of the team’s Our Island campaign, fans are invited to design and submit jersey concepts that represent the team’s Long Island roots and what it means to them to be a Long Islander.
The Our Island fan-designed jersey will be worn at three Long Island Nets home games, and all jerseys will be autographed by individual players and raffled off to benefit a non-profit organization at the end of the season. The beneficiary will be announced at a later date.
“We see this contest as a great opportunity for our fans to express themselves creatively,” said Alton Byrd, vice president of business operations of the Long Island Nets. “As Long Island’s team, it’s important that we represent and engage our community in fun and unique ways.”
Entries can be submitted online at longisland.gleague.nba.com/jersey-design-contest. All entries must be received by 11:59 p.m. EDT on Aug. 18. The winner will be notified by Sept. 9, and publicly announced in late September.
The designer of the winning concept will receive a personalized Our Island jersey and four courtside seats to the three Our Island home games during the 2019-2020 season.
