Lehigh Valley Phantoms 11/14

The Adirondack Phantoms will become the Lehigh Valley Phantoms when the team moves to  Allentown, Pa., prior to the 2014-15 season, the team's owners announced Wednesday.

The announcement was made on the Twitter account of the new 8,500-seat arena that is currently being constructed in Allentown. The regional name keeps in line with Allentown's minor-league baseball team, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, the Allentown Morning Call reported.

The team's new logo, available to view on, features tweaks to the Phantoms' wordmark. The mask logo, is largely unchanged, but will feature blue as an accent instead of purple.

The Phantoms were originally supposed to move to Allentown next season, but the arena experienced some construction delays. Team owners believe the arena could be completed at some point during the 2013-14 season, but made the decision to start playing in Allentown during the 2014-15 season.
