Lightning lights up Tampa Bay
Lightning bolts regularly light up the sky in Tampa Bay, and that’s why the city is often referred to as the lightning capital of the States. This is how Tampa Bay Lightning got their name when founded in 1992. Apart from being an accurate reflection of the team’s home town, the threatening connotation of the word is representative of the team on the ice. There was also a slight uniqueness to the name that splits them apart from other ice hockey teams, there is no ‘s’ at the end of the name, only a small difference however this makes them stand out from other teams, such as the Detroit Red Wings, Florida Panthers, Winnipeg Jets and LA Kings. The lightning also worked very well in their logo and essentially helped bring the branding of the team to life. Want to see how the Bolts show up live on the ice?
