Rumors have swirled around Central Florida for months regarding the 20th anniversary jerseys that the Orlando Magic will wear for the 2008-09 season. Is there a new logo? A new color scheme? Could there be new text? Will the jersey read “Orlando” across the chest? Or maybe “Magic”? Might the team bring back the pinstripes? Will there be three versions, or only a home and away?
Well, fans, the moment of truth is fast approaching. The Orlando Magic will hold a Jersey Release Party from 12-2 p.m. on Tuesday, September 23 at the Cheyenne Saloon in downtown Orlando. The event will celebrate the unveiling of the new jersey to the public and will be catered by the Cheyenne Saloon, offering fans free soda and water, with free light fare available. The Magic Dancers and other Magic stars will be on hand to unveil the new jerseys.
The party will offer fans more than the ability to be one of the first to see the new jersey. Fans will have the unique opportunity to win a drawing at the event, in which the winner (drawn by STUFF) will receive the very first 2008-09 Authentic Jersey given to the public. The new jerseys will also be on sale at the site. Fans who purchase a new jersey will also receive a 20th Anniversary patch with their jersey. Be the first to own the newest Orlando Magic jersey!
There will also be a promotional offer with ticket purchases at the event. Anyone who purchases a half season plan or higher (minimum two seats) will receive both a VIP reception and 50 percent off a new jersey of their choice.
If you are unable to attend the Jersey Release Party, you still have the opportunity to watch the unveiling and place a pre-order online. Orlandomagic.com will run a live stream from the event, providing all fans the ability to get a first look at the new jersey, and also have the jerseys available for pre-order at the online shop.
And for those fans attending the event, don't be shocked if you see a 6-foot-11 gold medal-winning center walking around the Saloon.
BE THERE for the unveiling of the brand new 20th anniversary Orlando Magic jersey.
