  1. Well, the Sounders lift the MLS Cup, and its time to look to the next season. So what to expect? Will the NASL survive? Will the USL take over D2? Will Seattle fans be incredibly insufferable? Will the Cosmos ever pay all those players and staffers their back wages?
  2. 2017/18 Soccer Kits

    It's time, these usually start around this time of the year and there really isn't anything else left to discuss pertaining to 2016/17. Spurs and Chelseamoving to Nike, so look out for those 2. Seems like Barca is always one of the first to leak..
  3. We have the Players in the "Wrong" Uniforms thread and within that thread I've seen a few "Right Team, Wrong Uniform" entries. I thought I'd separate the two, because it is an interesting topic of its' own. Here are a few to start the thread off with ... Charles Barkley, Preseason 1992, Phoenix Suns Matt Hasselbeck, 2001, Seattle Seahawks Jeff Bagwell, 1992, Houston Astros.
  4. Lower Island Soccer Association

    I know someone made the same series as this, but the Lower Island soccer association hits home for me. This is my first topic so I'm experimenting here. I played for Prospect lake in this league and I have decided to do a cool project. There are 10 teams in this league. The league was founded on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. I will be doing the teams in alphabetical order. In my opinion, the league looks outdated and needs a whole league re - brand. This is my take on the Lower Island Soccer Association. I will start with the league logo. As you can see, we have the actual logo and my concept. In my concept, we have the word "LISA" and a soccer ball in the bottom. It's very hard to tell but in the background of the logo, we have a modernized maple leaf representing Canada, of course. NEXT UP: Bays United
  5. 2018 FIFA World Cup

    Quite a few teams already qualified and more will qualify in the coming international break, so it's time.There's been a steady trickle of leaks for months, but now the leaks are really starting to be flooding in Logo Official Ball Referee kits (available in blue, black, red, yellow and green)
  6. LOCKER ROOM PRESENTATION

    Just wanted to share a new template I created intended to display a uniform of any sort. Below are two finished examples, one with soccer, and another with football equipment. Message me to get a hold of a blank template with no watermark. It is saved as a png. file and I personally used paint.net. Nothing special just hoping it may spark someone's interest. Enjoy! I am accepting feedback to adjust as well.
  7. US Super League (13/64)

    I apologize in advance for this super long first post here. This is by far the most lengthy and intensive project I've done yet. Anywayyyys... USSL History: The US Super League was founded in 1970 at the peak of American soccer popularity. Many leagues were expanding rapidly, and the US wanted to make a Champions League type competition to compete with the European soccer market. They founded the Super League with six leagues from Texas area, California area, Florida, New York area, New England, and the Midwest. Many teams started to assert dominance in the League, and it almost became too one-sided. In 1976, more leagues started to join to increase competition and eventually by the late 80’s, every league in America was admitted to join the US Super League. In modern day competition, 64 teams face off in a group-based format. The field narrows down to 32 as the remaining teams face another group stage. The knockout stage starts when the field hits 16, and it eventually whittles down to a final 2. The first group stage has the teams play each other only once in their respective groups, but once that stage is done, each team plays their opponent twice, like the UEFA Champions League. Dallas Rangers hold the most victories with 7 followed by Brooklyn Wanderers who have 6 and Atletico Santa Monica who have 5. The 2016-2017 champions was the Californian club Saint Joseph who earned their 3rd title.

  8. Welcome everyone to the California Professional Soccer League or CALPROSOL! I’ve been working on this project for over a year now, but I’m very slow and meticulous, so you may have already seen state-based leagues on the boards. Nevertheless, I’m excited to present these concepts to you and get some feedback. This fictitious league features 40 of the premier clubs in California. Many soccer clubs existed in California in the late 19th and 20th centuries, but they mostly played independent exhibitions. In 1935, 10 of the top clubs organized to form “The California League” or “La Liga California”. Expansions began after World War II in 1948 as the state and national economies began to grow. Today, the 40 CALPROSOL teams make up one of the largest and most profitable soccer leagues in the world. Below you will find some helpful information regarding the league history, season format, and aesthetic standards. The existing season format was introduced in 1988 as a way to reward teams for more complete seasons as well as give every team a chance to win the California Cup. Concepts are coming soon, just bear with me! I have a lot planned for this project, but for now, you will just see club identities and kits from the 2015-16 season. Here are some of the other things I hope to complete eventually: Kits for future seasons Goalkeeper kits Simulated seasons on Football Manager or something similar Stadium renderings (perhaps SketchUp or Revit, but probably not) Training gear, fan gear (scarves, shirts, hats and the like) Historical kits You are more than welcome to give C&C, but I can’t guarantee I'll use it. You understand, right? Without further ado, let’s get started! TL;DR – I’m going to make soccer concepts, I hope you like them.

  10. Apex soccer league logos

    Forgive what is a double post, but the General Design forum doesn’t seem to be running rampant with active users. These are at least concepts for a real-life soccer league, so I’m hoping this is considered a legit post. Anyway, I'm in the throes of creating an adult rec soccer league in my area--the Rocky Mountains. I'm calling it Apex Rec Soccer League, drawing on both the noun and the verb form of the word "apex." I've narrowed down about 20 ideas to these two, both of which are shown in color and B&W. I have my thoughts on which is better and why I designed the way I did; typesetting will be completed when I finalize the logo itself. I'll hold off on my own thoughts until there is initial feedback. Thanks in advance for any ideas/praise/critiques.
  11. https://www.yahoo.com/sports/imagine-nfl-soccer-style-relegation-023418506.html Interesting story about what the NFL would look like in a relegation/promotion setup. The only part that definitely doesn't work is having NFL, CFL, AFL, and NCAA teams in a playoff, but maybe the bottom 4 play for the #1 pick?
  12. We've touched on this in the domestic soccer thread, but I think this is now big enough that it deserves its own thread. Last year, the US Soccer Federation sanctioned two leagues as Division 2 - the NASL, which had been the only D2 league, and the USL, which had previously been D3. The NASL almost folded at this point, and was only spared when Rocco Commisso saved the Cosmos from going under at quite literally the last minute. That gave the NASL a stay of execution, but only a temporary one. Last month, the owner of the NASL's Miami FC partnered with the owner of the semi-pro Kingston Stockade FC, filing a claim with the Court of Arbitration for Sports in an attempt to force the USSF to institute promotion and relegation in US Soccer. Two days later, it came out that the USSF had rejected the NASL's application to retain D2 beyond this year. Now the NASL, led by the Cosmos, has filed an antitrust lawsuit against the USSF in a desperate attempt to keep its D2 status. At its heart, the lawsuit is intended to challenge the USSF's minimum requirements for a second-division league, including the number of teams in the league, the geographic distribution of teams (how many time zones are covered), market size of the cities represented, each stadium capacity, and the minimum financial requirements for team owners. Now, the irony is that the NASL helped USSF write those guidelines back in 2010 in a deliberate attempt to shut out the USL, but has never been able to meet them. The biggest problem is that they've fallen short on the number of clubs; according to the standards. By year six they were supposed to have twelve clubs. This is their seventh season but only have eight, and one of them is threatening to fold if more people don't start showing up. This is a huge mess, and threatens to derail a growing sport. There's some pretty good summaries of the issues from people in the know here and here. Thoughts?
  13. Hello everyone! First I wanted to introduce myself, I'm PascalHugo and I am a designer. I wanted to create a football series, sorry soccer, across the Europe and maybe the world... So let's start this! ( Yeah yeah I know, I try inspiration by Berlin Wall and Lafarge) DEUTSCHE FUßBALL LIGA The Deutsche Fußball Liga was founded in 1960, after the DFB and the DDR decided to create an unique championship for Germany. It's a merger of several regional championship across the two Germany. It was one of the Top 5 championship in Europe (England, Spain, Germany, Italy and France) and it's most unpredictable of all. There are 20 clubs in the Deutsch Fußball Liga . During the course of a season (from August to May) each club plays the others twice (a double round-robin system), once at their home stadium and once at that of their opponents, for a total of 38 games.
  14. MLS Jersey Concept

    I've been lurking here for a while, and I finally decided to post something of my own. I'm only just starting out, so c&c is greatly appreciated. I will try to get through every team in the MLS, home and away, but I might go back and add some third jerseys if it goes well. Teams: Atlanta United FC - Updated Chicago Fire Columbus Crew SC D.C. United - Updated Montreal Impact - Updated New England Revolution - Updated New York City FC New York Red Bulls Orlando City SC - Updated Philadelphia Union Toronto FC Colorado Rapids FC Dallas Houston Dynamo LA Galaxy - Updated Minnesota United FC Portland Timbers Real Salt Lake San Jose Earthquakes Seattle Sounders FC - Updated Sporting Kansas City Vancouver Whitecaps FC - Updated
  15. Las Vegas Lights

    A newly created USL franchise has been announced and they want people to design a logo for them. http://www.lasvegaslightsfc.com/logo I imagine most here will not be happy with this.
  16. So with @gswansea kicking back up the WFA Club Championship, I've become inspired again to work on the MPL! I feel like last time a lot of the teams were rushed and ended up looking extremely basic. I was having a hard time being creative but I have a new idea to create coat of arms for each city as well as a detailed backstory to help me make each crest unique. This time around I'll start out with posting any logo updates/changes as well as new kits for the 2016-2017 season. In addition I'll try to post weekly match-day updates and scores +tables. I updated the map and just about all the names of cities and the two countries. The hypothetical location would be southwest of Ireland. Granon=French-like, Normania=English-like Not each city on the map will house a team, I was just trying to replicate Google Maps but eventually I'll create a map with the team's locations.
  17. It's back! This is the new WFA Club Championship. This year's format is slightly different, as I am blocking any of my teams from advancing past the first elimination round. I am also using a new score simulator that I created that takes into account home field advantage and past record (If anyone wants specific on this, just let me know). Also, one note: For those who have never participated, this is not a fantasy league with GMs. Rather, it is a knockout style tournament between the submitted teams. More details about eligible submissions below. Without further ado, Enjoy!
  18. The 2017/18 Premier League season begins this weekend, and it looks to be as competitive as ever with TV money flying left and right during the transfer window. I decided to undertake the task of designing every team's kits for the upcoming season, and will be post a few a day, in reverse order of last season's standings. I hope you enjoy! Promoted (via playoff): Huddersfield Town Promoted (2nd in EFL Champ.): Brighton & Hove Albion Promoted (1st in EFL champ.): Newcastle United 17. Watford 16. Burnley 15. Swansea City 14.

  19. 2017 Gold Cup Paint Redesigns

    I've been reading these boards for a couple years, but have never had the time or patience to create a concept series until now. The main reason i chose to redesign the CONCACAF Gold Cup is because most of the countries have very basic and template designs and lack any patriotism, especially the US. The main inspiration on all the teams will be the nations' flag, along with influence from past uniforms. First up from Group A, Canada. I kept the logo unchanged since they already have one of the best in the region. The uniforms are pretty straight forward. The Home is a Red jersey with a white chest stripe(for obvious reasons) and accents for the home kit. White with a subliminal maple leaf at the bottom of the torso as well as a flag styled stripe on the sleeves. The black third uniform uses a similar sleeve stripe and red and white accents on the jersey and shorts. The socks are black and red stripes opposed to the red with white stripe on the home and road socks. All three feature a line from "O Canada" above the name on the back. "our home and native land", "see thee rise", and "the true north".
  20. Onward - MLS to STL Expansion Bid

    Here's a logo, some kits, and some mockups I put together for a potential MLS expansion team in St. Louis. After looking around a bit, the expansion might not be realistic, but I can dream, right? Anyways, here's what I made. *Arena mockups not mine *Arena mockups not mine *Arena mockups not mine And that's it! Keep in mind I didn't make any of the arena mockups, but the rest of the work is all mine. Rip it apart.
  21. Northstar Soccer League

    The Northstar Soccer League is a fictional soccer league made up of 20 teams from all across the great state of Minnesota, I hope you enjoy this series.
  22. Recently some of the details for Belgium and Adidas' World Cup 2018 kits were leaked. It was noted that 2018's kits would be more vintage and would draw from older retro kits. For Belgium's, it was leaked that the kit will draw on the famous 1984 Euro kits, which were most notable for the big argyle stripe on the front. Taking this knowledge, I mocked up what Belgium's kits could look like for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. The primary kit, as usual, is a red shirt, but is paired with black shorts, hearkening back to the early days of the Belgian team. The most notable feature of the kit is the diamond pattern on the front, with a black and yellow diamond pattern across the chest. Above it are more dark red diamonds, in a gradient pattern. This pattern aims to draw from the retro design, but give it a modern twist. A black, gold and red trim is featured all over the kit, mimicking the Belgian national flag. For the secondary kit, I drew from the first ever Belgian national team kit, a white jersey with black, red, and yellow sleeve stripes and black shorts and socks. I made a fauxback of sorts, combining a few different eras and smaller details from across the team's history. For the jersey, I went with a cream color instead of a white, creating more of a vintage look. A dark cream horizontal pinstripe lies on the kit, fading as it descends. The crest is the original Belgian crest, which is found on both the shirt and shorts. The shorts and socks are the same as the primary kits'. Let me know what you think of the kits! Hope you enjoyed!
  23. Republic of Ireland Kits

    Edit; Closer images now added. Sorry. So the Republic of Ireland are moving to new balance this summer so here are my new kits for them. They feature Celtic knots in various ways. Home - Traditional emerald kit that fades darker then revealing the Celtic knots. Touches of orange make it stand out as a ROI kit. The shorts are simple and the socks feature the same fade as the top. Away - Using the classic white with a green knot coming down the front on the crest side. The collar features the Irish flag. The classic feeling continues with solid green shorts and solid white socks. Tell me what you think.
  24. Never been a fan of pixel art, until yesterday, when I woke up and just felt like doing pixel art. I managed to get a decent looking template and wanted to try it out. Decided to create jerseys for the states of the US. Here´s some of what i´ve come up with. What do you guys think? Still trying to figure out how to upload pictures without worsen the quality.
  25. Galway United (away) Here is my take on away kit for Galway United. So first a bit of background, Galway United are a club from the west of Ireland that are in the top division of Irish football. Their kits in recent years have been brilliant. Their Current home kit is biased on the famous boat from the county. http://galwayunitedfc.ie/2017-home-jersey-revealed/ Teams from the county are known as the Tribesmen or women. This is due to the 8 tribes that were prevalent in the county. This brings me to my kit. Its a simple white jersey with a colourful trim. That trim is made up of the colours of those tribes. On the inside of the collar is teams tag 'its tribal thing'. Would love some C&C.
