ROSWELL, Ga. -- After nearly two months of voting, a winner has been chosen in the 2012 Atlanta Silverbacks Uniform Design Contest.

The winning design came from 29-year-old Adrian Portillo of Roswell. His entry received 685 votes on the Silverbacks' Facebook page, more than any other design.

The Silverbacks will wear Portillo's striped uniform vision during the 2012 soccer season.

In addition to seeing his design on the team, Portillo won a grand prize that includes a four-day trip to Bogotá, Colombia and four uniforms featuring his winning design.

Each of the contest's five finalists won a pair of 2012 Silverbacks season tickets.

The Atlanta Silverbacks finished their 2011 season on Saturday night.
