Reason For Choice• ExplanationI chose Carson City as the home of my team is because of its cozy hometownfeel. Though it is the capital of Nevada, it has a rather small and close knitpopulation. Many of the people in Carson City know each other and thereforour team has a free source of advertisement… The people. Say one personsays, “Hey did you go to the Condors’ game last night? They were amazing.You should check them out.” That is a way of spreading the word of about theteam. Plus since Carson City and Nevada in general doesn’t have any sportsteams, the people will be excited about this new change. Carson City is home to many historic museums and homes and are agreat family attraction. The revenue that this team could bring in would berather high. As of right now, Las Vegas is the biggest attraction in Nevadafollowed by the peaceful city of Reno. By adding a sports team to Carson City,it would boost the amount of tourists come to the city as well as benefitingNevada as a state.

Why the Name?• Franchise Name – Carson City Copperheads• Explanation – According to CATSEYE PEST CONTROL® (a local pest control service), approximately 127,000 Copperheads call Carson City their home. Though most tend to stay in their habitat, some do make their way into residents’ homes. Therefore, the Copperhead is somewhat a feared and aggressive animal. Giving this name to my football team symbolizes that the team is aggressive and should be feared by its opponents.
Why the Colors?• Team Colors – White, Light Green, and Dark Green• Explanation – The color is used to represent the color of the venom that the Copperhead releases when attempting to kill its prey. It also symbolizes the eco-friendly nature of the team. We will attempt to leave a small carbon footprint in the environment from an environmentally friendly stadium to uniforms made from recycled materials.
Why the Logo?• Team Logo• Explanation – The logo clearly displays a snake which can quickly be associated with the team name.
Why the Mascot?• Team Mascot – Cody The Copperhead• Explanation – The reason for this mascot is simple. He looks aggressive to the adults yet has friendly personality and a childish name to appeal to kids. He is a fun loving, team crushing snake who enjoys spending time with the fans.
