By Florida Tech // August 28, 2015
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Florida Tech and Palm Bay Magnet High School unveiled a new midfield logo and stadium signage last Friday at Florida Tech Panther Stadium.
Replacing the pirate head logo is a red “P” inside a gray circle with a black border. Other additions include a metal sign reading “Florida Tech Panther Stadium” that spans along the back side of the west stands and a smaller sign of the same design on the front of the west press box.
FIT and Palm Bay Magnet High School announced in late July the purchase of naming rights for PBMHS’s football stadium, home of Panther football as well as men’s and women’s lacrosse. This agreement is for three years with the option for two additional years.
