Miami Dolphins confirm new logo

March 27, 2013 at 4:10 PM   |   Comments

March 27 (UPI) -- After a week of speculation, Miami Dolphins CEO Mike Dee confirmed the logo that leaked on Twitter is in fact the team's official new graphic representation.

“It was leaked by somebody at Nike,” Dee said after a stadium renovation press conference. “We had always had a plan to kind of roll it out over a 30-day period so we’re going to start rolling it out. But the logo is only one part of the announcement. It’s a complete re-branding of the team.”

The Dolphins' current logo has been in place since 1995.

“There’s a lot of history in this in that we went back to colors, the true aqua and the true orange that were part of the first 29 years of the franchise’s history,” Dee said. “But the logo design itself and some other things you’ll see respect that tradition in the past but also have an eye on the 21st century Dolphins.”

The new logo, which features a helmet-less dolphin, will be officially unveiled on April 25, the first day of the three-day NFL draft.
