I've seen many crossover series before, but most stick to traditional striping patterns used by the teams, applying them to another sport's uniform. I wanted to start from the teams' names and logos, but leave the striping up to hockey conventions. I figured the North American league where messing with identities would provoke the least outcry would be the MLS, so here's the first team in my MLS to hockey crossover... the Atlanta United!

I got rid of the "FC" from both the name and logo, and also removed its striping. I matched the striping with the logo, and kept red cuffs and hems. I used black pants, but kept the home helmet red.

My immediate "I would do that" thought was to take the part of the logo roundel without words and apply that to the collar of the uniform.

My "I really like how that looks" is the double gold striping. I wouldn't have thought of it, and it looks really nice.

My "meh, I could do without that" is the number font. It doesn't look like it belongs with the logo font.

It a good start, the striping pattern is amazing. I agree that the number font looks out of place, though. It seems like a missed opportunity to have beveled numbers, since it's on the logo.

I like the start. First of all, the number font does not fit the A in the roundel. I would change it to something sharper, or even something that looks almost 3D. Good start though. This should be fun!

I agree with the other comments about the number font, I'm really looking forward to this series though

Next up are the Chicago Fire.

I decided to replace grey with powder blue from the Chicago flag, which I added as a hanger effect. The striping also takes cues from the logo, whose six points represent the six pointed stars on the flag. Like my Atlanta concept, I kept the cuffs and hems red on both jerseys.

If no one has anything to say about the Fire, I'll go ahead and post the next team: the Columbus Crew.

First, I got rid of the "SC" from the name and logo. I kept yellow as primary, but made the checkerboard pattern more subdued, and added black and white striping over it. I used simple two colour names and numbers. Like Nashville in the NHL, I gave them a yellow helmet to wear at home.

The pattern incorporation for Columbus is great. No complaints there. I'm not so sure about the idea for Chicago though. The inspiration is there, but there's something off about it.

Here's my concept for the Rapids.

I had to tweak their logo to make it work for hockey. I got rid of the wordmark, shrunk the logo to accommodate the change, and replaced the soccer ball with the Colorado C. I used a mountain striping pattern based on the logo and used maroon equipment.

Love the mountain pattern, the colors logos work well with this kind of jersey. I like Columbus a lot. The checkerboard is a nice touch, kind of like what the Canes do with the warning flag. Not a huge fan of the powder blue in the Chicago set. Silver would have been fine IMO.

Next up is the DC United.

I based the striping off the logo, and added white outlines for it to stand out, and used a simpler pattern on the hem.

I'm back with a concept for Dallas! I tweaked their logo to "HC," and used a patriotic striping pattern.
