Floridian Premier League (Derby Posters)

158 posts in this topic

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

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...

I'm assuming Orange County is the Orlando team, right? Also love this idea, as well as AC Boca's concept.

Although I normally hate blue and green together, this is just amazing.

Great work on Boca! Love the colour scheme. Can we see a bigger version of the FPL logo?

 

As for linking to each post, here is how I do it:

 

First, hit "Share" (top right corner of your comment) and copy the link of the post you want. Then edit your original post, highlight the team name, hit LINK (hyperlink logo) on the top bar and paste in the URL. 

 

Should work. Let me know if I am unclear in anyway.
