Next up is Southwest United, located in Marshall, the Swans joined the league in 2001 and are one of the newest teams in the league, they have won 1 championship in 2014. Their main rival is Mankato FC.

 

Similar to Red Wing, the Swans are owned their sponsor, Schwans Food Company which is based in Marshall. Due to being owned by Schwans the team has been nicknamed the Swans and their logo reflects that. Their colors have changed multiple times along with Schwans color changes. They choose the name Southwest United rather than Marshall to appeal to a larger market and call themselves "The South's Team"

 

Home: A dark red a cream kit with arrows pointing down or south.

Away: The same as the home but cream and dark red are swapped.

Alt: A throwback to when their (and schwans) colors were blue and gold.

As someone who lives in southwest Minnesota and had a dad who used to work for Schwans, I love this so much. My only suggestion would be to make the colors Brown and Gold because those are Schwans colors and the favorite colors of Schwans founder and SW Minnesota hero Marvin Schwan (that's why SMSU Is Brown and gold). Amazing job I love this thread
