Austin Bold FC

That's one of the worst names I've ever heard, and I can't see anything in the logo besides L3.

A third-tier soccer team based in Austin has just been announced.

 

They will play in the USL Division III (third tier) from 2019.

 

This is their logo.

I believe they will be USL Division I, per the Austin Statesman.

Shoulda named it Austin, Steve SC

 

(SC for Soccer Club or for Stone Cold?? Youuuu decide ?)

I would’ve had Steve Austin as HC. With Jim Ross as as announcer.

Austin Bold sounds like a knockoff of Comic Sans.

Ugh, so much going wrong here!

 

The name is one of the worst I've ever heard. It's an ADJECTIVE. UGGGGGGHH.

 

The monogram is kinda interesting, but it's made of random lines... Why is it split in such a weird way?

 

The roundel is super boring, too. Both the outside and the inside feel super boring and empty. It reminds me of this sadness.

 

The only thing it's got going for it are the colors.

 

Why, oh why, didn't they bring back the Aztex name? That could've made such a cool brand, with Aztec geometric patterns.

Two versions of that team have died. Never go back to a poisonous well and expect clean water. I also think the roundel is a bit of a shot at PSV, whose current team is also using a roundel. That 1,2,3 in the B? Is it because they're hoping for third time lucky?

Just spitballin' here, but I'm thinking that the "1,2,3" might be a stylized rendering of the observation tower at the Circuit of the Americas. Frankly, if that wasn't what the graphic designers meant it to be, it is what they should claim they were shooting for.

I hope that's it. Looks like there's a chance Circuit of Americas could host soccer too.

On the bright side, Milwaukee Torrent is no longer the stupidest soccer team name in the country.

How are Americans still struggling this bad with soccer names?

That's where they'll play. Only 5,000 seats so it won't affect racing too much. It's also the sleeve sponsor on the jerseys shown today.

IDK if this, or Milwaukee Torrent, is worse.

How are Americans still struggling with soccer names after this long?

They do sould like MLS 1.0 names but I'd rather they take a chance than go with Athletico Austin.

That's a bold strategy Austin; let's see if it pays off.

Bad logo, bad name, bad everything.

 

Really interesting roster construction.  A 15 year old local phenom, plus three mid-30's foreign (ex-)stars, plus potentially Usain Bolt . . . all for a USL team in a city that will be getting an MLS team in no time.

 

Very strange.
