Discovering and loving L.A.F.C.’s new logo.

Tip of the hat! Great Read. I was watching that terrible YouTube live feed at work, but then the drop. … Oh my! The logo was beautiful.

My expectations were not high. I’m a soccer junkie and simply was hoping for some soccer news, the reveal simply being a means to end for me. The new graphic took all the oxygen out of my head. I quickly went to MLS Reddit and saw consensus was reached. People were very pleased.

As a LA Native who still spends lots of time there, I knew right away.

I will drop serious coin on merchandise. My teams are Timbers and Republic. I always wanted to support an LA team but could never adopt Galaxy. Too far, mentally and physically from my roots. LAFC on the other hand — I’m in love already. Expo Park is easy to get to, and it seems like the ownership group is savvy enough not only to spend big but spend smart. LAFC will be a huge team, globally, one day. That graphic will replace the white on blue Dodger “LA” as visual ambassador for the City.

Hoping for a USL team in 2017 at Weingart. Then my loyalty will be forged, and I will have three West Coast MLS teams to support. At least one of them has to be good each year, no?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
