American Premier League

Miami works, but I think that adding the Vice Teal would make it pop as a complete concept. Maybe just a few hints in like the pink border of the crest and the sponsor logo on the black.

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.

On the second set try the sponsor in the blue from the third and do the whole cross.

Don't love the Real name for Miami, as very little of the Hispanic influence on Miami comes from Spain itself. I think the rest of the "Euro" names in this set work but this one feels a little forced. It's your concept though, and visually I like it a lot. Really like the interlocking RM logo though, as well as the flamingo shield. What about centering the flamingo leg so it intersects with the pink border? Home kit is excellent, reminds me of a better version of the pink Juventus kit from a few years ago.

As far as Real Miami's nicknames go, I believe that the Spanish translation of "The Flamingos" is "Los Flamencos" (as opposed to "Los Flomingos").

Sorry for the break there I've been busy with school ending, anyways I'm back. next up we have Atlanta City FC. The Phoenix are the newest team in the East and are generally bullied by the older, better teams. Atlanta are usually a bottom dweller in the East but still manage to have a huge following locally. Selling out for 15 straight seasons, the fans don't have much to cheer for but support their team anyways. They really only have one heated rivalry and that is with Real Miami. The team is named after the city of Atlanta's history with the city being destroyed and burned but rising from the ashes like a Phoenix. The creature can also be seen on the city seal and across the town. 

 

The logo is a Phoenix rising out of flames like from the city seal, the team name is displayed in the circle and the Phoenix's wings break out of the circular border.  The colors of Red and yellow are meant to represent fire, black was added later on but most fans wish they would drop it completely.

 

Their home kit is a red top with red pants and yellow socks, the top of the jersey and sleeves is yellow and there is no black on the kit at all. The away kit is a yellow jersey with red pants and yellow socks, there are 2 stripes surrounding the logo, one red and one black. Their third kit is meant to honor the state of Georgia's nickname "the Peach State" it is all white with peach accents, the jersey is the same as the home but the red is white and yellow is peach. (I know it is similar to the Atlanta United clash kits but I really like them and I thought it would be a good way to represent the state while having a white jersey like every team has. I was actually originally going to do the main jerseys and logos in peach and they would be called the Peaches, but I decided on Phoenix instead, that way I could have this in the set as a third kit, pls don't hate me... thx)

Logo is very well designed. Also, the “Phoenix Rising” part of your post put me in a sour mood reminding me we aren’t the next mls team. Don’t mind my dumb rant, your project is inspiring.

Next up, representing the Lone Star State, we have Club San Antonio. The Silvers are a relatively new team in the league but have better luck than many other teams including some older than them. Although they have never won an APL title they have played for one and lost in penalties. The Alamo Men are often in the playoffs and in the top half of the west. Due to their success they have a few rivals, most notably Atletico LA, Bay United, and to a lesser extent Colorado United. Club San Antonio has embraced the Mexican Culture of the area and they are the only team in the league to have English as the secondary language on programs as well as in game announcements.

 

Their logo is a shield with the top of the Alamo making the top of the crest. The lone star is on the top of the shield with the team name and year of founding below it. At the bottom is a old style soccer ball in a shape seen across the city of San Antonio.

 

Their home kit is what the team gets its nickname from, the silver top with black pants and silver socks. Their away kit is all black with silver accents and a faded Alamo at the bottom of the jersey. The third kit is all white with black accents, it is nicknamed the "fiesta kit" due to the bright colored stripes on the bottom of the jersey meant to honor the areas history.

Atlanta's away jersey is amazing. I was not expecting San Antonio to be in here, was thinking either Dallas or Portland, so I'll go with both of those as my guesses for the final team.

Last but not least we have Las Vegas FC. The Gamblers are the newest team in the league, joining in 1995. They are yet to win a championship, despite a crazy run in their expansion season where they surprised the world by making it to the APL championship game only to lose in the finals to DCSC. Since that year they have only made the playoffs a handful of times, the team is usually in the basement of the west. This is surprising due to the sheer amounts of money the team gets from the local casinos and millionaires. Gamblers games are often a tourist attraction with tickets given away by casinos, it has become a destination for away fans to go watch a game. Games often seem to have more away fans than home fans which is frustrating for local supporters as the team has become somewhat of a joke in the league. The times that Vegas fans come in droves is when rivals come to town, teams such as Bay United, FC Seattle, and of course Atletico LA often lead to sellouts and some of the craziest games of the season.

 

Their crest is made up of the "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Nevada" sign, inside it features the letters LV FC for Las Vegas Football Club, between those there is a star from the same sign as the border shape. Below is a ribbon from the Nevada flag, flipped to fit the logo, with the state slogan "Battle Born" on it, this has become the team rallying cry. The teams colors are black and red to represent the cities history of old school bandits as well as to represent gambling, red and black can be seen all over a casino, from the cards to the roulette wheel.

 

Las Vegas FC's home kit is a simple black jersey with red sleeves, black pants and red socks. The away kit is a red jersey with a black and white bar across the top of the jersey over the crest and swoosh, the jersey also has has black cuffs and the star from their logo on the jock tag like the home jersey, the away kit also has black pants and red socks. The third kit is meant to represent the state as it is nicknamed the "Silver State Kit" it is all white and silver and the left side of the jersey features a sublimated mushroom cloud representing the states history as a nuclear test site.

I think he means the league below the premier league, like the Championship in England or the 2. Bundesliga.

Ooooh gotcha, I'm considering it. There are definitely some cities I had in mind that just missed the cut for this one. I have a couple other things in mind too so I might do some stuff and come back to that or just jump into it, if I do decide to do a second league.
