Awesome uniforms are a great way for lesser-known teams to gain attention.
On March 1, the ECHL's Las Vegas Wranglers will break out Spider-Man uniforms when they take the ice against the Idaho Steelheads. This is no joke.
Here's a little bit more information on the specialty uniforms, via the Las Vegas Wranglers:
The jersey itself features the Wranglers’ alternate crest in the center as well as patches for both the sweater sponsor, Diamondback Land Surveying, and the night’s beneficiary, Children’s Hospital of Nevada at UMC. All game-worn jerseys will be auctioned off after the game, with proceeds benefiting Children’s Hospital of Nevada at UMC.
Awesome uniforms for a good cause? Sounds like a plan.
In case you were wondering, the jersey will be up for sale in the team shop. One fan will win a free "jersey off the back" during the game.
Fans will be in for a special treat Saturday night. Spider-Man will be in costume during the game, which puts this night over the top.
