ET Land Elephants rebranded as Daegu Kogas Pegasus
Korea Gas Corporation (Kogas) unveiled its new professional basketball team, the Daegu Kogas Pegasus, at a ceremony in Daegu on Monday.
Kogas acquired the Incheon Electroland Elephants in June and have rebuilt the club as the Daegu-based Pegasus. Daegu has been without a regional basketball team for a decade since the Orions moved their base to Goyang, Gyeonggi.
The Daegu Kogas Pegasus home stadium will be the Daegu Indoor Gymnasium and the mascot is a Pegasus.
The new club's debut KBL match will be against the Ulsan Hyundai Mobis Phoebus at Dongcheon Gymansium in Ulsan on Oct. 9. Their first match at home will be against the Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation Pro Basketball Club on Oct. 10.
