The Hornets team catches wind of this and battles the villains to save the city!  When the Hornets come out victorious, a celebration in the city of Charlotte takes place to thank our heroes, the Hornets. The Hornets Buzz City Series brand pays homage to Charlotte’s rich history with a fresh and fashionable uniform that is inspired by the city’s reputation as a beacon for hope and opportunity.

How to Get These Buzz City Series Posters & Jersey
