While voters in states across the nation are having their chance to narrow the field for the U.S. Presidency, voters will also have their say in the all important selection of the name of Chicago's Women's Professional Soccer (WPS) franchise.
The Name the Team Sweepstakes launches today and runs through May 16th.
We are proud that our first name will be “Chicago”, the greatest city in the world. As part of our commitment to be a team that truly represents Chicagoland, we would like our team name to reflect the history, character and culture of the city. With that in mind, we have nominated ten names that have direct historical connections to Chicago:
Please vote for your three favorites in order here. Your vote will influence our decision on what the final name will be and one lucky winner will be chosen at random to receive more than $2,500 in cash and prizes including inaugural season tickets and suite tickets to our inaugural game in Spring of 2009 at Toyota Park.
Please comment below and let me know why you voted the way you did.
i'm looking forward to seeing what names you recommend for your team.
