Mystics Introduce New GM/Head Coach Trudi Lacey and Unveil New Team Logo

What started out as an introduction, ended in another Monumental change.

With Mystics season ticket holders lining the Acela Club for their first opportunity to meet and greet Trudi Lacey, the team’s new General Manager and Head Coach, the Mystics elected to give their most loyal fans some breaking news; the team is changing its colors.

Mystics G/F Marissa Coleman joined Lacey on stage to unveil the colors and brand new logo. Mystics COO Greg Bibb, who also addressed the audience, stated that “We are pleased to introduce the new look of the Washington Mystics. We feel the new color pallet provides an attractive refresh to our identity while aligning the team with the Monumental Sports & Entertainment brand.”

The new-look continues to promote the increased use of red throughout the Verizon Center and is part of Ted Leonsis’ 101 signs of visible change. These color changes can be seen everywhere from the parking garage to the red painted steps of each section.

The new logo is among the first of many Monumental changes this off-season. Check throughout the off-season for more information on some of the major happenings regarding the Mystics, including the presentation of their new jersey for the 2011 season.
