The New San Antonio Stars
SAN ANTONIO (Jan. 14, 2014)
Spurs Sports & Entertainment unveiled today an updated look for its WNBA franchise that will be reflected in the 2014 season. Changes include new logos for the "San Antonio Stars," which were previously known as the "Silver Stars." Additionally, San Antonio-based retailer H-E-B has signed on as the first-ever marquee sponsor for the Stars and will have the iconic H-E-B logo prominently displayed on the front of their jerseys. The updated logos and jerseys were unveiled today at a press conference held at the AT&T Center.
The 2014 campaign will mark the Stars' 12th season in San Antonio. The team relocated from Utah in 2003 and was then known as the Utah Starzz, one of eight original WNBA franchises.
The Stars' new primary logo utilizes the familiar silver, black and white color palate and features the San Antonio Stars wordmark above a shooting star. The secondary logo contains a stylized "S" above the shooting star.
The New Look
"The new look for the Stars provides an updated design that more closely aligns with the brand and feel of our entire Spurs family of teams," said Rick Pych, Spurs Sports & Entertainment President of Business Operations. "We have been very fortunate to have H-E-B as our business and community partner for well over 20 years and they are the perfect fit to be the first-ever marquee sponsor for the Stars."
"Obviously, putting H-E-B and the Stars together means joining two iconic Texas brands. For me, this is where I do all of my shopping anyway, so it's a double-bonus. Hopefully we will be able to represent the great organization that H-E-B is, not only to San Antonians, but all across the state of Texas. It's something we're proud of ... and here, everything is better."
"We all shop at H-E-B, it's our store, and we appreciate the support we receive from the fans and the community. It's always nice when you're out and see the fans, whether it's at an H-E-B or somewhere else, supporting you off the court. The community we have here in San Antonio is fantastic."
Partnership with H-E-B
This is the first-ever marquee sponsorship for the Stars and H-E-B is the ideal partner for this unique opportunity to be represented on the front of the Stars jerseys
Last year, H-E-B and SS&E announced a five-year renewal as corporate and community partners. H-E-B is the presenting sponsor of the Spurs 2013-14 season and will be the presenting sponsor for the Stars 2014 season. H-E-B also has a presence with the San Antonio Rampage (AHL) and Austin Toros (NBA Development League).
"I'm absolutely thrilled with the partnership with HEB. I think it signifies a wonderful day in the history of the Stars. Having a marquee sponsor like HEB facilitates a signal of growth."
"Communicating our name as the Stars is something we have done within the organization for a long time, so I think this signifies a really good day for the future. The fact that we are now branded as the Stars and sponsored by HEB makes the timing just perfect, and I am just thrilled for the future of the WNBA in San Antonio in partnership with HEB. I am looking forward to the Stars and the great days ahead."
