Next up we have Colorado United SC. The Bighorns are in the western conference and are usually towards the bottom of the league. Years of underachieving and bad trades have been the story for the Horns. They do have a sizable following despite this however, with fans often traveling from surrounding states and from across the state to support them. Seattle, St. Louis and Minnesota are their main rivals.

 

Their logo is a roundel with the team name and year it was founded in the circle. Inside the circle there are purple mountains to represent "purple mountains majesty" and a Bighorn Sheep in the foreground which is the state animal and the namesake for the team. The circle on contains the C from the state flag.

 

Their home kit is all black with a purple band outlined in white around the sponsor, purple collar and cuffs. The away kit is all white with a vertical black-white-purple stripe behind the crest and on the socks. Their third kit is in the colors of the Colorado flag and includes a recolored logo and sublimated mountains on the bottom of the jersey.

Might be too obvious for your tastes but I feel like that Colorado logo is just begging to have the C from the state flag incorporated in some way.

 

Looks great though.

I thought about it but couldn't figure out a way to do it that didn't look too forced

It's not that difficult to do so. Just keep what you have and turn the outer purple circle into a C. It would keep what you've made while capturing the essence of the Colorado flag C (you may also have to thicken/widen the outer circle also).

Maybe something like this?

Obviously your concept though, I could go either way on it. Minnesota and Seattle are top notch.

Next up we have Olympique St. Louis. Known as the blue and red, they are usually towards the middle of the west and sometimes fluctuate up and down. OSTL has some very dedicated fans who are known for waving flags at games, the flags of St. Louis and France are synonymous with the APL because of this. OSTL has some rivals in Minnesota, Colorado, and Chicago.

 

Olympique St. Louis' crest shape is based off of the shield from the old St. Louis flag. Inside the shield is the team name, the gateway arch and a fleur de lis from the city flag.

 

Their home kit is a red jersey with the wave pattern from the city flag going down the front of the jersey over the logo, white pants, and blue socks with the fleur de lis logo on them. Their away kit is all white with the left sleeve being red and the right stripe blue, the top of the socks follow this. Their third kit is meant to honor the large amount of Bosnian immigrants in the city, the largest amount outside of Bosnia, it is an all blue kit with yellow accents and diagonal white stripes from the Bosnian flag, those stripes are also on the socks.

Le bleu et le rouge is the blue and red in french.

Very solid set you have here, probably one of the best so far. Only gripe is that the third kit is styled after the Bosnian flag, but the entire identity of the team seems to be centered around France. I like the idea of a blue third kit though, and the other two kits are flawless.

Heading back to the east we have Cleveland FC. Known as the anchors due to the city being on the shores of Lake Erie, they often do their name sake and sink to the bottom of the eastern conference. Cleveland has never won an APL championship and are usually taken out early in the playoffs by the powers in the east. They do have 2 fairly large rivalries, one against Detroit, and the "Battle of the Turnpike" against Pittsburgh. Despite years of mediocre play at best, the anchors still have a very loyal fan base that travels well especially against teams in the east.

 

Their logo is a roundel shield made up of an anchor, the teams name sake. inside the middle circle there is a CFC monogram for Cleveland FC. The team colors are navy and wine, navy represents Lake Erie.

 

Their home kit is a wine jersey with blue pants and white socks. The jersey features a blue chevron outlined in white and the sleeves are blue with white cuffs, there is an anchor on the jock tag of the home and away kits. The away kit is all white with really thin chevrons on the upper left and lower right of the jersey, upper are navy, lower are wine. The third kit is in honor of the rock and roll hall of fame which is located in Cleveland. It is a black jersey with white sleeves, black pants, and white socks, the socks feature the anchor logo and the jersey and socks have just the CFC monogram. There is a sash made up of 6 thin stripes meant to represent guitar strings.

Cleveland's logo is one of the best I've ever seen. The anchor roundel is genius, and that monogram is bold and sleek as well. Everything else is great as well.

Next up is the last team in the Midwest, Sporting Milwaukee. Though they are relatively new to the league, the creams are usually a top half of the league team. Always being just above average have allowed them to build quite a loyal fanbase, but they now have a reputation as a team that can't win when it counts. Years of playoff losses to rivals haven't helped this either. Speaking of rivals, Milwaukee has a few large rivalries. St. Louis and Detroit are big but their "Border Battle" with Minnesota and the "Lake Michigan Derby" with Chicago are some of the most heated rivalries in the APL.

 

Sporting's logo is a diamond with smaller blue and cream diamonds from the Bavarian flag between the team name. above Sporting is a soccer ball and below Milwaukee there is 81 for the year the team was founded. The team colors are "Lake Michigan Blue" and Cream City Cream". the logo shape is based off of some German teams plus the Bavarian flag due to the large influence of Germans in Milwaukee.

 

The Creams get their nickname from their home kit, they are the only team in the APL to use their lightest jersey as their home, it is a cream jersey with blue cuffs and collars, blue pants and cream socks. Their away kit is 2 toned blue with the diamonds from their logo separating them, the pants and socks are blue as well. Their third kit is all yeallow and black to honor the cities brewing history as well as the states dairy industry.

I'd like to see the Milwaukee crest turned at the same angle as the Bavarian pattern.

Yes, the last 4 teams are all southern. The league expanded south late in this universe.

Also could of gone with All Aboard. 

Cleveland is so far my favourite, I was sort of wtf with the third kit but it grows on you.

Next up we have Real Miami. The Flamingos are a team that have been at a disadvantage due to their location. Being in the East has made things much harder on them, despite usually having good teams they are still yet to win a championship. Despite this they have one of the largest followings of any team in the APL. Their fans are known to be very loud and making home matches a very hard game for opponents. The team has adopted many traditions from Hispanic nations due to the large amount of immigrants in the area, making games in Miami have the same type of atmosphere as ones in places such as Cuba. Miami only really has one major rival in Atlanta City.

 

Real's logo is a black and pink shield with a Flamingo prominently on the front, in the upper left corner there is an RM monogram for Real Miami. Their logo hasn't changed at all since joining the league

 

Their home kit has never changed and is a very simple design, pink jersey and socks with black accents along with black pants. Their away kit is all black with a pink X across the jersey, this is meant to resemble the flag of Florida. Their third kit is based off of the Mimi Vice colors, pink teal and black.
