Franchise Name and Explanation Portland, Oregon Knights ▪ We chose the Oregon Knights because ▪ A knight is a resemblance of fighting men and that’s what our boys do best. ▪ Knights can plow through anyone in their way. ▪ It is easy to say and original! ▪ We are the only NFL team with a logo of a knight which makes the Oregon Knights something special.
Team Colors Team Logo good representation of our team and their qualities The sword under the knight is a symbol of their ability to fight until the end and never give up. The font chosen shows how official and serious about winning the Oregon Knights are!
Team Mascot Nicky The Knight ▪ he is a fighter and can push his way though anyone. ▪ Everyone loves the red and black?! ▪ He is one heck of a guy and isnt afraid to push people put of his way to WIN!
Design- Location The Oregon Knights stadium will resemble the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in Louisiana. Based on the weather patterns, it’s smarter to have a completely covered dome since the cold weather will affect the players and the game. This will be a multi- purpose dome because of the variety of sporting events and concerts that can be held in such a huge dome and the cost will be much less if it’s being split up between a few different companies.
Interior Physical Design We will have another concession stand called Ryan’s wings and things. This smaller sit down/ take to your seats food vendor is named after Matt Ryan because of all his major accomplishments and sponsorship opportunities brought forth through him.
