Hi again, everybody.
After a summer break from sports designs, I have had an idea that I would like to develop little by little with your help, if that's okay with you.
What would UEFA Champions League teams look like if their fans organized a minor league baseball? My intention is to take the twenty teams that have played in the UCL final since 1993 (first final in the Champions League format) and create a concept with each one according to the nickname of their fans. Not all teams have a nickname so I have had to invent some of them. And for others I still don't have a name.
These are the teams chosen in alphabetical order and his nicknames (in parentheses the years they played final and in bold when they were champions):
Ajax (1995,1996) De Godenzonen.
Arsenal (2006) The Gunners.
Atlético de Madrid (2014, 2016) Los Colchoneros.
Barcelona (1994, 2006, 2009, 2011, 2015) Los Culés.
Bayer Leverkusen (2002) ¿?
Bayern München (1999, 2001, 2012, 2013, 2020) Die Roten.
Borussia Dortmund (1997, 2013) Die Bienen.
Chelsea (2008, 2012) The Blue Lions.
Inter Milan (2010) Le Biscioni.
Juventus (1996, 1997, 1998, 2003, 2015, 2017) Le Zebre.
Liverpool (2005, 2007, 2018, 2019): The Livebirds.
Manchester United (1999, 2008, 2009, 2011) The Red Devils.
Milan (1993, 1994, 1995, 2003, 2005, 2007) ¿?
Monaco (2004) ¿?
Olympique Marseille (1993) ¿?
Paris Saint-Germain (2020) ¿?
Porto (2004) Os Dragóes.
Real Madrid (1998, 2000, 2002, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018) Los Merengues.
Tottenham (2019): The Spurs.
Valencia (2000, 2001) Los Murciélagos.
I want to make several clarifications:
The nickname of Chelsea fans is The Blues and Liverpool fans are The Reds. I have modified it for this occasion because it seemed convenient to me. The Borussia Dortmund fans' nickname is Die Schwarzgelben (the black-yellows) and I thought it was also convenient to call them Die Bienen (the bees) because it made my job easier. I have only kept the nickname of the Bayern fans, Die Roten (the reds) because I had a very specific idea.
I accept suggestions for the missing nicknames.
Constructive comments and criticism are welcome.
Thank you very much!
