Cincinnati, OH – The Cincinnati Cyclones have unveiled their one-night alternate identity for Hippos Night at Heritage Bank Center on Saturday, March 4. The partnership with the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden marks the fourth year the team has swapped names with a local landmark; previous pairings include: Flying Pig Marathon, Kings Island and Skyline Chili.

  • Purple and white color palette with turquoise accents
  • An illustrated hippo chomping through a hockey stick as the crest
  • Subdued watermarked plant frond details
  • The Cyclones’ and Cincinnati Zoo’s primary logos on the shoulders with an additional zoo patch on the chest
