  1. 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.
  2. 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?

  4. 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..
  5. 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. Crystal Palace
  6. 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.
  7. 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 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 Sporting Kansas City Vancouver Whitecaps FC - Updated
  8. 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".
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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!
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. The Pacific Electric Football League (v.2!)

    Howdy! Another crack at this I shall be taking. Less bogged down in historical minutiae and more designer-rific content. Kits, logos, stadiums! With that said, here's some.....historical minutiae ..... Historically, the Pacific Electric Railway Co. was primarily a Los Angeles area land development scheme. Profits came from the PE shareholders routing rail lines through their land holdings to facilitate development. Passenger service alone never made a profit. Fictitiously, creating a sports league to provide attractions along PE routes would encourage development and fill the trolley cars on match days. In the beginning there was the Pacific Electric Football League, and it was very good. So good that another organization, the Trolley League, established clubs at stops along the PE routes. For decades the two leagues had a handshake agreement implementing a promotion/relegation system and a unified league cup. Occasionally friction erupted, like with the transfer freeze of 1924, yet eventually the two leagues became a single entity in 1949. When land development declined, the lines ended general service and became a seasonal system serving only the PE leagues during its match days. In 1972 the league re-branded to reflect its unified organizational structure and to distance itself from its streetcar heritage. The Otto Aicher-inspired or ripoff league logo invited much litigation and proved unpopular however, and a more traditional design replaced it. Following a resurgence of public light rail patronage in the early 1990's, the league retro-branded to embrace its history. Though it is branded as an independent league, the Trolley League remains the Second Division of the PE league. A visual aid: ...and a league map. As each club concept is completed the map info will be updated. #motivation In this concept, Association football is as American as apple pie and NASCAR...in Los Angeles. The nation looks upon this region with a curious awe and befuddlement.
  17. 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.
  18. I know what you're thinking, another US Soccer concept? Stay with me on this one. When US Soccer went through their rebranding, I was really excited. I thought nothing could get as bad as how the team's branding was before. However, the brand went in a completely different direction than I wanted. I think the federation in general should have taken on a more vintage, collegiate look instead of trying to be very modern with their designs. The font is too spread out and rounded for me, while the kits look way too modern and futuristic. In addition, instead of building on old jersey designs and giving them a breath of fresh air, it seems as if every cycle they just try to come up with something completely different. The federation is ignoring the 100+ years of history and other uniquely American design elements that they can bring to the table to honor the history of soccer in America. With this concept for the 2018 World Cup, I intended to hearken back to the storied history of the national team and give America a classic, vintage, traditional, but modern look. With this new set of kits, the idea was to establish a new orthodoxy of how US Soccer designs kits. I struggled quite a bit with which of the many looks the team has had over the years to retain, but I tried to keep it as simple as possible. The primary kit must always be primarily white, the secondary be primarily blue, and the alternate to feature some kind of red and white striping. So, let's start with the primary kit. I went with the standard US white kit, but with some special touches. The concept of the primary kit is to create a kit that pays homage to the national team's history and unrelenting fighting spirit. I chose to draw from the famous Gadsden Flag and the image of the rattlesnake. First, the jersey crest is located on the chest, in homage to the original US Soccer jerseys. A diamond design inspired by rattlesnake skin is sublimated on the front of the jersey. The kit is rounded out with navy shorts, and socks with subtle hoop designs. Additionally, "Don't Tread on Me" lies on the inside of the kit under the collar. The secondary kit draws from decades of US Soccer employing a sash on kits. This installment features a dark navy sash across the jersey. The shorts feature red stripes down the side, and are paired with inverted socks. "EST. 1913" lies under the collar on the inside of the jersey. Lastly is the Waldo-style alternate kit. Only for special occasions, such as big rivalry games, the main feature of the kit is obviously the red and white stripes. Darker red pinstriping lies inside of the red stripes. The kit borrows the shorts and socks from the primary set. "Stars and Stripes Forever" lies under the collar on the inside of the kit. With this set of kits, the US gets a classic look that draws from a lot of different eras and influences, but still retails the sleek minimalist look that Nike is currently producing. Let me know how I did! Enjoy!
  19. In a reflection moment from my others ongoing projects I decided to give a try at rebranding the Finnish Veikkausliiga, the nation top soccer tier. I always like to improve my skills with little known leagues as I can go pretty wild with my ideas. The Veikkauslliga has a nice overall design and some logos are flashy too but others are really in need of a make up session and kits are just completely plain. This is the actual league logo (not my work ), LIIGA stands for league and VEIKKAUS is the name of a betting agency. The league plays in the summer season and has 12 teams. For 2017 season the teams are: Inter Turku FC - Turku Lahti FC - Lahti HIFK fotboll - Helsinki HJK - Helsinki IFK Mariehamn - Mariehamn, Aland Islands FC Ilves - Tampere JJK - Jyvaskyla KuPS - Kuopio PS Kemi Kings - Kemi RoPS - Rovaniemi SJK - Seinajoki VPS - Vaasa Here you have a map with all the teams https://drive.google.com/open?id=199mTwpDPiqZuU4YSc-3hZeEwvOE&usp=sharing In my concept the whole league will be outfitted by Nike and I'm going to use Raysox's Nike template. So, let's get started... HIFK Fotboll Full name: Idrottsföreningen Kamraterna i Helsingfors (Sporting Society Comrades of Helsinki) Stadium: Telia 5G Areena (10,770) Nickname: The Star Chested, The City Pride Founded: 1897 (1907 for soccer) Finnish titles: 7 HIFK is a sport association with many different branches including hockey, bandy and soccer. They sport a red jersey also if their crest is of complete different colors. Actual logos and kits My concept I switched colors and edited the shield to make it more fitting to the identity. I added a white sash on the home to mock the shield and a big four pointed star sublimated on the white clash kit (both on front and back). The sponsor , VR Group, is the Finnish national railway network.
  20. Brave-Bird's World of Soccer

    Team No. 1 -- Atlanta Silverbacks Founded: 1994 Current league: NPSL (amateur) Location: Doraville, Georgia Stadium: Silverbacks Park (5,000) Kit sponsor: Taco Mac (popular wings and beer) Twitter: @ATLSilverbacks
  21. Recently, I've been working on changing up my template and presentation for soccer jerseys. I decided to test out the ideas I've had on my high school Alma Mater, McQuaid Jesuit in Rochester, NY. McQuaid just went through a new rebrand, which hearkened back to the original marks from when the school was founded in the 50s. This led most of the teams to get new jerseys and gear. The only team that hasn't gotten new jerseys for some reason is the soccer team. I wanted to give them some new jerseys that were a little more sleek and had more personality than the template Nike kits that the team currently wears. For the primary kit, I kept the traditional minimalist all white kit. A slashed stripe gradient design is found in the upper half of the kit, which pays homage to the seal of the school and the coat of arms of St. Ignatius Loyola. I updated the crest with the new Knight logo, and also added black trim with a splash of gold on the socks. For the secondary one, I elected to go for a more unconventional design. Drawing from the kit style of Sao Paulo or Spartak Moscow, a large alternate "M" logo lies at the chest of the kit, in front of a gradient hoop design. The numbers lie over the heart on the upper right. The black shorts, socks, and trim complement the bold gold shirt. Let me know what you think of the presentation and the kits! Hope you enjoyed!
  22. Back in January I started my alternate universe of soccer, where soccer is the only major sport in the world. Here is the page to see all of the rules and past designs: So I recently began work on the 2017-18 Premier League season. All 20 teams are done and so are some other things(I'll get to that later). For now I will just be posting concepts. I start with the league logo(Unchanged): Special thanks to @TheHealthiestScratch for this Photoshop version of my hand drawn logo.
  23. Valencia CF Logo Concept

  24. Won't make a big production out of this (don't have all 30 teams done yet), but I've moved on from my NFL Soccer project for now. That was a good "beta" test, if you will, as I am still learning the game of soccer. Subsequently, I'm also learning the aesthetics of soccer. I'm hoping this concept (and eventually full project) will show some progress. This time, I'm working on creating new badges for every team. Some will be subtle differences from the real-life baseball team. Others will be 100% re-designs. This time, I've actually saved all the files so I can edit as critiques come in. So without further man-splaining, here's the first crossover: Los Angeles Not too much to explain here. You'll see in this project sometimes I get carried away with doing hoops all the time, but "The Angels" have a bit of variation. The home (red) kit has a pretty basic look. I chose two reds to help break apart the kit. I didn't want a huge red block of color coming at the viewer the whole time, a la Liverpool. I feel like this combats that a little bit. The away (white) kit also has hoops, but with a different feel. The one grey hoop directly above the crest is a tip-of-the-cap to the Angels' halo caps. You can also see a red yoke which represents the angels that everybody has on their shoulders...Or that could be Nike-style marketing BS. You be the judge. My favorite, though, is the 3rd. I wanted a complete recolor and, thankfully, the mid-90s provided some good inspiration for Los Angeles. Once put together, the kit is light blue-navy-light blue-navy in a row. I also re-colored the crest to match the new color scheme. Send some C&C love on these kits. Next up soon will be San Francisco FC.
  25. Floridian Premier League (Derby Posters)

    I’ve been away from the boards for a while, but I’ve still been looking at other soccer concepts for ideas. In about late-July I decided to revive it, but instead of building off of what I already had, I decided to go back to square one. I made the league brand new and doubled the teams to a whopping 48. So this is the biggest project design related I have ever done, and like I said before, I’ve been working on it (drawing up ideas, writing backstories, designing kits and crests) since about late-July. I hope you all enjoy this mammoth of a project and please don’t shy from C&C. I can take it. League Backstory: The Floridian Premier League was founded in 1940 to give an southern counterpart to the thriving American soccer leagues in states like California, Texas, and New York. It’s immediate success brought it to the same level as these other leagues and it has been a farm for successful play domestically with other state league sides. It is composed of 48 teams, the most sides of any league in America. 8 of those teams get relegated, and 7 of them go to the American Champions League. Its most successful club domestically is International Gardens, and its most successful club nationally is Lauderdale Athletic. Team List: Athletic Club Boca Biscayne Athletic Soccer Club Brevard Brevard Rockets Soccer Club Buena Vista United Cascades Soccer Club Clearwater Soccer Club Daytona Racing Club Soccer Club Deerfield Deportivo Miami Fort Brooke Soccer Club Soccer Club Fort Myers Freedom Tower Soccer Club Gateway Soccer Club Gold Coast Diamonds Gulf Shore Athletic Harbor City Soccer Club Hillsborough City Soccer Club Homestead City Soccer Club International Gardens Soccer Club Islanders Soccer Club Keys United Soccer Club Lakeland Swans Soccer Club Lauderdale Athletic Club Lighthouse United Soccer Club Locomotive Gainesville Menéndez Club de Futbol Miramar Club Deportivo Nautica Soccer Club Ocala Riders Soccer Club Orange County Soccer Club Palm Beach Maritime Panama City Soccer Club Paradise Soccer Club Pembroke Rovers Soccer Club Progress United Real Palmas Club de Futbol Reeves Soccer Club River City Soccer Club San Agustín 1565 Sporting Pensacola Springs United Soccer Club St. Johns Brigade St. Lucie Union Sunshine City Soccer Club Tampa Bay United Volucres Soccer Club Ybor City Soccer Club I’m gonna do a similar thing to TheGiantsFan where he has a famous person from that city represent the name on the shirt, and you have to guess it. In this concept I’ll post a league table, and at the end I’ll group the crests and home and away kits together to get a big idea of what the league looks like altogether. I’ll be posting the teams alphabetically and about one per day, maybe more. Anyways here's the first club...
