CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - University of Illinois Division of Intercollegiate Athletics (DIA) officials have selected "There Is An I In My Team" as the winner of the 2013 football season Loyal-Tee Shirt Slogan Contest. Jake Paskiewicz of Algonquin submitted the slogan and wins a pair of 2013 Illinois football season tickets and a $125 gift card to Gameday Spirit Fan Stores. The slogan was chosen from over 250 entries.
Fighting Illini fans can help choose the design of the 2013 Loyal-Tee shirt. Four different T-shirt designs have been made based off of the winning slogan, and fans can vote for their favorite from now until Friday, May 10, at 5 p.m. The winning design will be featured on the front of the shirt, while the 2013 football schedule will be on the back.
The winning design will be announced and shirts will go on sale online and at Gameday Spirit locations by late May. The shirts, which will start at $14.99 each, will be worn by the Block I student section during the 2013 season.
Led by head coach Tim Beckman, the Fighting Illini have seven home games on 2013, starting with the season-opener at Memorial Stadium against Southern Illinois on Aug. 31. Illinois also will host a "Chicago Homecoming" game at historic Soldier Field in Chicago on Saturday, Sept. 14, against Washington. Season tickets are on sale now and Chicago Homecoming tickets can be purchased for as low as $30 here.
