  1. That ball-flame logo for Fuego is excellent. I'd really like to see more clubs (especially NA clubs) move away from the tired shield looks. This on the front of a hisrt would be absolutely perfect. Alas they go with a less-than-inspiring choice for their main crest.
  2. Whitecaps sleeve sponsors. Canadian Tire and GE Appliances (which TFC also has on their sleeve this season).
  3. I actually quite like the OA logo on its own. It looks like someone just took the Marseille logo, deleted the middle, and shoved the two outside bits together. There's a bit too much negative space in the shield version, and the maple leaf could use a bit more finessing. Interesting that the Wolfpack went with an ultra modern logo, while the Aces are going with this fauxback look.
  4. I really like what Nike is doing this year. Interesting designs that aren't too cookie cutter, but also not too far outside the box.
  5. This is the plan. CPL will adopt MLS' one new kit per year model starting in 2021.
  6. Of note.. all clubs home kits feature white shorts and socks. This was apparently at the request of Macron, who had issues with designing and supplying 14 custom kits last year. The hope was that this would simplify things a bit. The latest rumour though is that all teams will have black away kits (which would provide the suitable clash with the white shorts/socks). If so, I have a feeling fans will not be happy. And Ottawa's kits will come at a later date. But expect red and white stripes paired with white shorts and socks.
  7. Likely orange, but we'll find out later today when all home kits are revealed.
  8. Forge FC's 2020 home jersey has leaked. I feel like the white stripe must be a nod to the Hamilton Steelers.
  9. Jeep also paid the band X Ambassadors to write the song "Renegades" when first launching the vehicle. So there's precedent for creative tie-in marketing.
  10. The name hasn't officially been announced as Atletico Ottawa, but Jeff Hunt did let it slip. And yes, new home and away kits for all teams this season has already been confirmed.
  11. The other thing I've been thinking about is what colour their second kit should be to ensure they properly clash with other teams in the league. My vote is for a "oxidized copper" kit like the Parliament roof.
  12. I'm hoping that they do a little nod to Ottawa's traditional sports colours and pair a red and white striped shirt with black shorts and socks, but we'll see.
  13. It's actually a newly updated crest.
  14. Should we expect red and white versions of this template for Canada?
  15. That hornet concept is nice, but treads a little too close to Brentford.. I'd prefer to see Watford stick with the hart.
  16. I had a twitter exchange with Chris and sent a follow-up email offering to cover the league for the mothership, but never got any response. AAF was covered a fair bit prior to kickoff. Chris isn't a soccer guy, so it's just not a priority for the site, unfortunately. But if you want live updates on MLB uniform colours, you've come to the right place!
  17. Check #CanPL on twitter for some excellent speculation on these teasers
  18. All signs point to the kits being anything but boring. Whether that turns out to be ugly and over the top, or unique but classy, remains to be seen.
  19. Yeah there's potential for every club to own a colour (as above in that graphic), but there's also a chance we see Edmonton in navy, Valour in black, York in grey, Halifax in navy... which would be a very dark league overall.
  20. The Canadian Premier League is set to unveil 14 kits for all 7 clubs on Thursday of this week. They've posted a teaser of something on Twitter. That's the league motto, on what appears to be a back collar(?). Hoping that's just some sort of league marketing top, as it would be strange to have a league motto on a club kit..
  21. I found myself thinking that the white on the Portland shirt was too much as I watched the game yesterday. I feel like if they switched the trim colours, so it was primarily gold with just a bit of white, it would look more cohesive. Either that or the adidas stripes should be white.
  22. To build on this, 2019 is 40 years since the Whitecaps won the 1979 NASL Soccer Bowl. They often use next season's kit designs in their season ticket push. I wouldn't be surprised to see a white shirt with the blue chest stripe, with white shorts and socks.
  23. By the way, the next reveal will be Winnipeg on June 6th. The rumour is that the club's name will be Valour FC. The club is owned by the same group as the CFL's Bluebombers, so I wouldn't be surprised to see a similar colour scheme.
