The Tampa Bay Rowdies made history today when they announced that Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino will be the jersey-front sponsor for the 2014 season. It is the first time in team history that they have had a jersey-front sponsor.
Since the early days of the old NASL, Tampa Bay had the ‘Rowdies’ moniker on the center of their jersey. When the team re-formed and eventually reclaimed the ‘Rowdies’ name they continued to have the moniker centrally located on their soccer jersey. The team logo will now move to the left chest over the heart.
The logo will appear on all authentic Tampa Bay Rowdies jerseys. The new jersey will be unveiled in March and make their on-field debut in the team’s home opener against FC Edmonton on April 12.
