Shamrox Unveil Their Lucky Charms

The Chicago Shamrox indoor professional lacrosse team begins their inaugural season this January. In preparation for the start of their season, the Shamrox hosted an event at Harry Caray's to unveil their home and away team jerseys. Flanked by two members of the Shamrox Dance Team, Shamrox players Chris Panos and Zach Heffner modeled the jerseys.

The opinions around the Chicagoist office water cooler have been mixed, at best, on the uniforms and worse when evaluating the uniforms for the dance team. Usually, Chicagoist only uses uniform designs to pick the winning jockeys when we go to Arlington, so we will wait to see how the team performs this season before we give our final opinion of them. Fans of the new team can purchase their jerseys prior to the first home game by visiting the Shamrox website.

The Shamrox compete in the National Lacrosse League (NLL). The indoor league plays on a field similar to an indoor soccer field including hockey-style boards and glass. The Shamrox will play 16 regular season games, with eight of them at their home in the Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates. Tickets for home games will start at $15, with season tickets starting at $10. The Shamrox also have a partnership with Comcast SportsNet and ION Network WCPX-38 to broadcast their eight home games.

The Shamrox are just under a month away from their first match. They play the New York Titans on Saturday, January 6, at 7:30 p.m.
