The team debuted a new logo with an interlocking N-Y-L, and while the general green-black-white color scheme remains the same, the Lizards have brightened up the shade of green. Rudnick said, “Other sports right now – whether the Seahawks in the NFL or the Oregon Ducks in college football – using the bright colors is definitely a popular thing right now and we thought this would be a great thing for our uniforms, the pop of the green against the black.”
In addition, the N.Y. Lizards during the '13 season will for the first time play two home games at Icahn Stadium on Randall’s Island. Rudnick said, “We’re hoping that will attract more people from our new exclusive markets … people who might have felt that going out to Long Island was a little bit too far for them. So that’s a little bit more of a centralized location.” The Lizards have played home games at Hofstra’s James M. Shuart Stadium since '09.
