Over the last two weeks, we've received some fantastic jersey submissions for our new IceHL World expansion teams! Today I'm excited to present them all in the first round of voting.
To keep things interesting, I'm changing up the selection process this time around. Rather than one big bracket, we're going to narrow the pools down to four per team with a series of heats. Each team had a different number of entries, so the heat sizes will vary. The top vote-getter in each heat will move on to the next round. The winners of those rounds will advance to the final to ensure three rounds of polls for each team.
Below you'll find 68 jersey entries in 12 polls. Click to enlarge each design. You may make up to 2 selections in polls with more than 3 options. Happy voting!
Lastly, because of issues that arose during the logo design selection a few weeks ago, I'm going to experiment with the IceHL Design Council's role. Rather than casting votes for individual designs along with the community, they will be consulted at the end of the public vote where they will have the option to veto the community's decision.
Three of the four council members will need to veto a design to have it disqualified. There are four teams and council members will each have two vetoes at their disposal. If a design earns more than 75% of the community vote, it will be immune to a Council veto.
Please let me know if you have any concerns about this process.
