  1. In an alternate universe the American Football League was never created, instead it was the Federal Football League. Established in 1960, the FFL was a 16 team league with 2 conferences. There was the Eastern Conference and the Western Conference. Eastern conference consisted of BOSTON ADMIRALS / BROOKLYN ISLANDERS / BUFFALO SCOUTS / HARTFORD COYOTES / CINCINNATI GENERALS / INDIANA MAVERICKS / MIAMI SHARKS / ORLANDO STINGRAYS. Western Conference consisted of COLORADO COMETS / HOUSTON WRANGLERS / KANSAS CITY WARRIORS / NASHVILLE RAMBLERS / LAS VEGAS OUTLAWS / LOS ANGELES TIGERS / OAKLAND PIRATES / UTAH YELLOWJACKETS. Federal Football League played 10 seasons (1960 - 1969). In 1970, the Federal Football League merged with the National Football League. This merger created the American Football league in 1970. The AFL consisted of 2 conferences. Federal Conference and National Conference. Federal Football League's 16 teams now made up the Federal Conference and the National Football League's 16 teams now made up the National Conference in the American Football League. In this universe the American Football League is the present day 32 team league (1970 - Present). Now back to the Federal Football League. Founded in 1960 with 16 teams, the Federal Football League was just as popular as the National Football League. Their title game was named the Champions Bowl. Here you can see each teams' logo, wordmark and helmet. Federal Football League Logo
  2. Hey guys! I'm back with another redesign concept. I had been wanting to do a football league overhaul, but I didn't want to do the NFL since there are already so many topics out there covering that, and I'm not sure I can really do any better So as I was looking for possible leagues to do, I came across the Chinese Arena Football League. This was a perfect fit for me, a relatively small, new league with terrible logos and less than stellar uniforms. Which essentially means I have a lot to work with and room to get my creative juices flowing. Anyways, I'm proud to present to you the new CAFL crest! Here is their current crest for comparison: I liked the overall shape of the shield, so I kept that. It almost reminds me of the NFL logo. I decided I wanted to make this more...Chinese? I don't think a red, yellow, blue scheme works well, so I just went for the colors of the Chinese flag, which in my opinion, is a beautiful color palette. I really wanted to keep the China theme here, so I put the country into the shield emblem. I kept the stars, but obviously made it look more like the flag. I had to include football somewhere, and I thought a silhouette would work better here. I've tested out the crest, and it looks really sharp when you put it in different team colors. Alright, so as you know there are six teams in the league. I will be doing teams in this order: Dalian Dragon Kings Beijing Lions Shenzhen Naja Guangzhou Power Qingdao Clipper Shanghai Skywalkers I will be doing logos and jerseys for each team. Maybe after I'm done with the main six, you can help me come up with ideas for expansion teams. Thanks for taking a look, and feedback is always appreciated I'll have the first team up here soon.
  3. For the past year or so, I've been developing a fictional football league, the American Football Association. Before now, I have only focused simulating seasons using dice and developing a narrative to go along with it (if anyone is interested: an explanation is under the "Running the AFA" spoiler). However, I have recently decided to learn Photoshop and Illustrator, and have determined that the AFA is the perfect project to practice on. So, starting in 1946, I am designing the logo and uniform for each team. Once I have finished that year, I will continue progressing through seasons, and will introduce new designs whenever teams rebrand, change their uniforms, relocate, or expansion teams are added to the league. I am looking for feedback and criticism for every aspect of the designs, from the template (which is based largely on the one used by the gridiron uniform database) to the specifics details of how I put together each team. The year is: 1983 Current Divisions and Teams If anyone finds a bad link anywhere below, please send me a PM to let me know so that I can fix it. Thank you.

  4. Some time ago I stumbled on the World Football League logos here on CCSL and I decided to give them a new spring by regenerating the league and by expanding it. The league will still be named World Football League and here you have my new logo, wordmark, monochromo logo and jersey patch. In addition to the original 12 teams from the USA I added 4 from Canada, 8 from Central and South America, 5 from Africa, 8 from Europe, 7 from Asia and 2 from Oceania. Without more reserves I'm going to present you the league conferences. Original Conference Birmingham Americans Charlotte Hornets Chicago Fire Detroit Wheels Florida Blazers (Miami) Honolulu Hawaiians Houston Texans Jacksonville Sharks Memphis Southmen Philadelphia Bell Portland Storm Southern California Sun (Los Angeles) + Vancouver Lumberjacks Toronto Reds Calgary Express Ottawa Canadians From this conference the top 4 teams will play for the Championship Finals I tried to stick with the real identities of the 70s with names and colors although some of them are now used by other major sports teams. Euroconference Stockholm Vikings Rome Gladiators Munich Mountaineers Rois de Paris London White Knights Barcelona Dracs Athens Argonauts Moskow Saints Just one of these teams will fly to the Championship Finals. Liberty Conference (Conferencia de los Libertadores) Rio Cariocas Aztecas de México (Aztecs) Buenos Aires Gauchos (Cowboys) Montevideo Libertadores (freedom bearers) Valparaiso Almirantes (Admirals) Panama Tugboats Caracas Pertoleros (Oilers) Bogotà Generales (Generals) The conference is not named after the continet but after a piece of history which is shared by all of these countries. The team names are mostrly in the native language for merchandise questions. Just one of these teams will fly to the Championship Finals. Afroarab Conference Cairo Pharaos Cape Town Penguins Lagos Eagles Dakar Lions Casablanca Touaregs Riyadh Stallions Riyadh was added to this group as in my opinion it makes more sense than to add it to far east teams as also Egypt and Morocco share an arab based culture with the Saudi city. Just one of these teams will fly to the Championship Finals. Indopacific Conference Sydney Wallabies Auckland Helmsmen Tokyo Kitsune Manila Tropical Shangai Red Stars Singapore jets Seoul Tigers Mumbai Elephants Just one of these teams will fly to the Championship Finals. I must add that I chose the conference color thinking of the 5 olympic rings. The red of Northen America was changed with the brown of a football ball to represent the original set of teams. To sum up, in the Championship Finals there will be 4 teams from the Original Conference ad one from every other conference for a total of 8 teams fighting for the Championship Trophy. Here you have some maps to make the team settings clearer. My work will be divided in two parts, the first where I'm going to redesign the late WFL teams and a second one where I'll be creating brand new identities for the new teams.
  5. I've recently wrapped a portfolio of Big Ten alternate helmet concepts, and look forward to hearing your comments. To be clear: each helmet created is intended to be an alternate helmet, used for one game, possible more during the 2017 season. To the best of my knowledge, these concepts are unique to existing concepts or helmets worn by the schools. To remain distinct to prior concepts, some of the designs are admittedly out there. I thought best to go the unique-and-quite-possibly-polarizing route than to recreate something that has already been designed. I will post 3-4 designs per day, and welcome your C&C. As always, a firm handshake to Mr. Davidson and Darth Brooks for their tutorials. This project was also preceded by a PAC-12 portfolio, which I will post in similar fashion assuming there is interest. Thanks in advance for your feedback. And away we go ...
  6. 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
  7. NORTHERN FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION Current Year: 1981 CURRENT TEAMS Western Division Saskatoon Yellowheads (Founded 1977) Edmonton Drillers (Founded 1977) Calgary Wranglers (Founded 1977) Vancouver Seawolves (Founded 1926) Eastern Division Montreal Maroons (Founded 1924) Ottawa Capitals (Founded 1977) Manitoba Stags (Founded 1977) Toronto Dukes (Founded 1977) Roughly six months ago I approached Veras and FFWally regarding the possibility of adding another fictional football league to the AFA Universe. They both welcomed the idea and we have collectively been creating the backstory for this new league ever since. This initial post will be used as the league homepage, containing the most up to date information of the league. Links to the ‘League Blog’ with will include logo, uniform, field and championship histories will also be housed in this post. I will be adding an explanation of how the league is ran and how games are simulated at a later date. The way in which I assign player/coach/team ratings will be slightly more involved than at the AFA/SFL level. League Blog: TBA Team Logo History: TBA Team Uniform History: TBA Stadium/Field History: TBA Championship History NFA Player Ratings: With the announcement that Canadian Football Association (CFA) will be ceasing operations, I have finally been given the green light to introduce my new Canadian based league which will kickoff in the Spring of 1978! So without further ado, welcome to the Northern Football Association CCSLCers!
  8. I'm looking for information on NAIA football rivalries. Google has failed me. Anyone have anything to share?
  9. Didn't see a thread for this so I thought I would add one. A new spring football is starting this weekend simply called "The Spring League". They call it "an Instructional league and showcase for professional football talent" They are having practices right now and then just 6 games all right before the NFL draft. No word on how many teams yet or what the uniforms will look like. Game Dates: Game 1 – Saturday April 15 1:00pm EST Game 2 – Sunday April 16 2:00pm EST Game 3 – Saturday April 22 1:00pm EST Game 4 – Sunday April 23 1:00pm EST Game 5 – Tuesday April 25 1:00pm EST Game 6 – Wed.

  10. 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...
  11. I searched through threads for the past year and couldn't find anything like this, so I figured I would post it. The idea behind this thread is to post interesting facts or statistics that a lot of people don't know. It'll essentially be the answers to trivia questions. I've got two interesting ones to start this thread off. The Minnesota Vikings were the first team to kick an extra point from the 15-yard line. Tom Brady has played two games at University of Phoenix Stadium, but he has never played the Cardinals there. The Pats have played two Super Bowls there, but only played the Cardinals at home since the stadium was built.
  12. I created this template using the images of the new Washington Huskies uniforms. You can change the colors of the gloves and socks. The shoes just remain black. If you see something you want to fix go ahead and let me know so I can fix it and upload it again! Thanks for checking it out! The socks will be darker than what you intend them to be. For some reason they would not go any lighter than that. There was not a good image of the back of the jersey so it could not be added.

  13. Just a quick stress relieving exercise and a logo update to match the teams other various branding. Nothing special here
  14. Hey guys, so it's been a few months since I've posted to the boards (the fault of a hard drive being completely deleted). Recently I saw a few threads that peaked my interest in creating uniforms again, specifically mgdmhl's redesigning college football thread. I tried to recover my work from my old thread but everything was deleted. So I didn't have inspiration for awhile. Fast forward a week or two and I'm watching Marquette play basketball in their new uniforms and, being the uniform enthusiast and designer I am, I wondered what they would look like on a football jersey. BOOM inspiration hit and I knew what my next project would be. I completed Marquette and wanted more so I decided to design what football uniforms would look like for colleges who don't have football teams. For some of these teams I heavily took inspiration from their basketball uniforms. I like when a school has a synonymous design throughout multiple athletic teams (think North Carolina or Wisconsin). For others I take inspiration from something in their logo or something that has to do with the school. I had this same philosophy in my old thread. I'll be unveiling teams by conferences. I have the Big East, Horizon, A10 and West Coast Conference done, except for the Adidas and Under Armour teams (I don't have a psd flat template for those brands). Here's a list of all the teams: Marquette Real template Providence Creighton Real template Xavier DePaul Seton Hall St. John's St. Louis VCU Saint Joseph's George Washington v2 George Mason St. Bonaventure Gonzaga St. Mary's UMASS Lowell UC Santa Barbara V2 Long Beach State V2 Wright State UW Milwaukee Northern Kentucky V2 Little Rock Wichita State Portland V2 College of Charleston Real template Chicago State Grand Canyon Black alternate Real template Utah Valley Pacific Boston Oakland CSU Bakersfield V2 UNC-Greensboro Real Template UTRGV UWGB Cleveland State Florida Gulf Coast V2 & Real Template Iona MARQUETTE GOLDEN EAGLES -Stripe design just like their new stripe -Blue Jersey matches blue -White b-ball jersey doesn't have any gold, so I added it -Gold is the same -Light blue b-ball jersey doesn't have any navy, so I added it. -All helmets are glossy -Socks are different colors so no "color rush" could be implemented. Except on the baby blue uniform. I think a "color rush" baby blue uniform would look great. I thought I represented the color differences well along with representing the basketball uniforms. But if not C&C is always appreciated. Also thanks to Logan Weaver for the template and thanks for looking guys and I'll have Providence up next.
  15. Lets get this started as the introductions get going: Not official numbers yet: Deshaun Watson #4 Mitch Trubisky (not official #) Solomon Thomas & Reuban Foster (not official #) Leonard Fournette #27
  16. Thinking about expanding my college football concepts... here's one for WV... back to basics as usual. C and C appreciated.
  17. Hello, I've been working on this design for quite a while and come up with a few different options. The trouble is I have no idea which one to go forward with? Would love to hear everyones feedback on the design they prefer and hopefully why that is (so that it will help in the future). Also love to hear any feedback on how to improve the logo in general. All feedback is very much appreciated!!! Thanks Phil FFD
  18. Links to each post: I II II-alt III IV V VI VII VIII IX X XI XII XIII XIV XV XVI XVII XVIII XIX XX XXI XXII XXIII XXIV XXV XXVI XXVII XXVIII XXIX XXX XXXI XXXII XXXIII XXXIV XXXV XXXVI XXXVII XXXVIII XXXIX XL XLI XLII XLIII XLIV XLV XLVI XLVII XLVIII XLIX 50 LI In a world where the Cleveland Browns not only make the playoffs, but make it to the Super Bowl five times ... Now that the Super Bowl Field Database thread has run its course until January, I will be doing alternate Super Bowl fields using the teams that lost the conference (or league) championships, or even some teams that lost in the playoffs earlier than the conference title if requested. Since these games never happened, I can take more input on what people would like to see in a teams endzone, especially for teams that hadn't made a Super Bowl during a particular era. In the Super Bowl database thread I mentioned I would go in reverse order for these fields, but now I'm thinking it makes more sense to go chronologically. So here is Super Bowl I, the Dallas Cowboys vs Buffalo Bills. And as I said before, endzone designs (mostly color schemes) are not set in stone here, so suggestions are welcome.
  19. This is my very first attempt at a fictional football league, I'm calling it the Elite Football League (EFL), I don't have rosters yet, but I have the team names and uniforms. The biggest separator between the EFL and the NFL is that there are zero jersey number restrictions. Founded: 2009 Inaugural Season: 2011 Atlantic Division: ------------------- Orlando Panthers Montreal Maples Boston Devils Pacific Division: ------------------ Omaha Wrath Oklahoma City Crusaders New Orleans Nighthounds
  20. Merry Christmas! For those in the know, high school football is overshadowed by Hockey, which leads to some boring uniform design. The Task I set up for myself today is to redesign uniforms for all of Alaska's High School Football Teams. I won't try to do logos, but if somebody wants to help with that, shoot me a PM. I'm using tbdaniel15's elite mach speed template, so thanks man!
  21. There are a couple of ncaa color rush concepts on the boards. I was going to do this a lot earlier, so don't think I'm trying to steal anyone's concepts. These will be hand drawn. Constructive criticism is appreciated, I will be free to take request. Also, I will only be doing colleges sponsored by Nike. Hope you like them Ohio State
  22. As I've made clear for some time, I'm a big fan of football and I'm currently living in Japan. To my surprise, I found that there is a big following of American football here and there are LOTS of colleges and universities that play football here. There is even a pro league and a championship game that pits the college champion vs the pro champion. It's call the Rice Bowl. I thought I would take the opportunity to share some of the cool logos and uniforms of all the teams from Japan. I'm going to start out going league by league and providing the top tier or division 1 teams first, then work my way down to any other teams that may be interesting to share. I hope you guys enjoy it and maybe it might open you up to learning more about American football here in Japan.
  23. Not sure how far I'm gonna go with this series, I'm just gonna play it by ear and if anyone comes up with suggestions for clubs. The original idea came when I was asked to sign up a team for a friends league in PES. The team I had in mind was based off of the show Courage The Cowardly Dog, and was named the Nowhere Brave Soon afterward, I got back into watching old episodes of Space Ghost Coast to Coast and, along with the passing of the voice actor of Zorak & Moltar, I felt like attempting a series out of this concept. The idea for this crest was to base it off the color scheme & three variations of the Space Ghost logos that I have been familiar with. This logo, I'm still not fully satisfied with. Here's what I currently have for Ghost Planet FC. If there are any suggestions for future clubs or critiques for either of these two, especially the latter, I would greatly appreciate it!
  24. I'm in the mood for creating some soccer concepts for the upcoming season. First for Barca and Real.
  25. When I was in my early teens, my parents bought me NCAA Football 98 for the computer. I really enjoyed the game, and it was very well-designed for the most part: 100+ schools; full-season play with rankings, major bowl games, and major awards; school fight songs; decent playbooks; something approximating logos on the helmets. It was a very good game for the late 1990s---not as good as the Football Pro series overall, but distinctly collegiate and lots of fun. Anyway, despite the overall quality, there were two details that I have since learned were wrong. One, LSU by default wears yellow jerseys over white pants at home in that game. Two, Missouri's colors are green and gold in the game instead of black and gold. (Come to think of it, I think the latter was also the case in that college hoops game for the Super Nintendo even earlier.) I was wondering: have you guys and gals noticed any similar errors in other games? (Incidentally, Football Pro 98 has the Eagles wearing kelly-green-and-gray even though they were in their second season with their current and inferior color scheme.)
