After a month of voting on Facebook the Atlanta Silverbacks have narrowed their uniform design contest down to five finalists. Those finalists were decided by fan votes on the Atlanta Silverbacks Facebook page.
All five start the final round on even footing, and the one that earns the most “likes” as of 11:59 p.m. on September 22 will be declared the winner.

The winner will be honored at the Silverbacks’ final game of the season on September 24 at Atlanta Silverbacks Park.
The designers of the five finalist uniforms are Nicole Stone, 38, of Johns Creek; Adrian Portillo, 29, of Roswell; Jordan Rowe, 26, of Atlanta; and Gabriel Campoy, 17, of Lawrenceville. Contestants were allowed to submit multiple unique designs for consideration, and two of Stone’s entries advance to the finals.
Each finalist has already won 2012 season tickets and the grand prize winner will receive a four-day, three-night trip to Bogota, Colombia. The Silverbacks apparel partner, Saeta, is based in Bogota and the winning fan will have the opportunity to visit the company’s factory and watch the new-look uniforms being manufactured. The winner will also get tickets to a professional soccer game in Colombia and four 2012 Silverbacks uniforms showcasing the winning design.
