Inter Miami FC Reveals Logo, MLS Expansion Club for 2020

I'm not aware of anything prohibiting it.  We were advocating for a while that NYCFC put its monogram on a clash kit instead of the full badge, and were told that was "a possibility".

 

That being said, it's generally good branding to pick one and stick with it.  Especially for a new club.  But there's a reason that Arsenal, Man United, Juventus, Barcelona, and other major clubs stick to one.

And even those clubs that don't, stick with one that's close.

 

Like the monogram

Like Marseille sticking the logo in a roundel

 

You can still tell the team. Not sure if the Miami one fits the bill.

I'd imagine they'd commonly be referred to as "Inter

Miami" and go with IMFC as their abbreviation.

Other than Montreal, my guess is the team that’s more commonly associated with Inter would also object.

 

I like every element of the crest except that dumb shield inside a roundel. Take it out, enlarge the cranes a bit and it’s beautiful. Hope that if they use pink shirts as first choice that they at least avoid black pants and socks, we’ve got so few pink teams I’d hate for them to all look alike

How many of those are throwbacks, though?  Not quite the same thing.

Legia Warsaw has partial logo on chest and full on shorts:

I've not idea about the MLS regulation, but I don't think that having different logos on different kits or even parts of one kit was problematic.

i like the colors. that should be a great palette to work with for uniforms and marketing materials. and i think they got the pink really right. Miami colors should be sun bleached, not sunburned (see the Marlins). very nice swatch there.

 

some of the imagery in the logo is confusing and i think its far too many ideas in one, but if you break it apart, it provides some great pieces to work with.

So Inter Miami....nice.  I'm kinda bummed since if they end up getting a side that the Rowdies will never make MLS if Miami and Orlando exist.

The only thing I wished that was included in the new identity would be a light shade of blue to echo the old Miami Vice colors as they have done with the pink... :(

honestly, im not a fan of that. i mean i am in a cheesey, nostalgic “remember the 80s” kind of way, but not for a new professional Miami sports team. black and pink feels right to me, and modern. i think its good to look forward with this rather than back. theres also some art deco influence here but it isnt over the top. i think theres a good balance of history and personality here. not a 50/50 balance, but like 70/30 leaning towards “new Miami”. i dig it

I will take the Miami Strikers in red and gold hooped shirts and black shorts. Getting sick and tired of the generic Euro brands.

Not me - I like this a lot more than re-treading another city's tired old identity.  Besides, those trademarks are still owned by the NASL.

 

Aside from the circular badge, Beckham's Miami club also trademarked different elements on their own - the shield, the sun, and the "M" monogram formed by the herons' legs.

I think the shield works really well on its own, and I'd like to see that on the shirt.

Wow...I wondered for a while why they had the birds' legs like that...then I saw the letter form. Pretty cool.

Yeah, it's cool, isn't it?  I love that part of the design.

The flamingos are really beautiful; I kinda wish they had forgone either the shield or roundel so that the flamingos are a bit more viable.  The name and colors are perfect though.

 

Now they just need to secure a stadium site and get this thing rolling for 2020.

The NASL failed.

Nitpick: they're not flamingos, they're white herons.  Found only in South Florida.  A nice local touch.

there you go. picking the elements apart makes for a lot of nice pieces to work with. very "responsive" logo system there. i prefer the shield as well

In general, I like it.  A third color might have added some additional 'pop' to it, but I'm glad that they're going with pink.  Its use as a primary color has been long overdue in North American professional sports.

Really think they could have added a teal color to the logo, kinda like the Miami Heat's Vice uniform.
