Recommended Posts

Here are the logos and uniforms for the 2017 KHL All-Star Game, set to take place on January 21st & 22nd in Ufa, Russia.  They'll use the same 3on3 Divisional format as last year's NHL All-Star Game.

Logo and branding for KHL All-Star Game unveiled
23 August 2016
 
The colors of Bashkiria and the image of a national hero will illuminate the 2017 All-Star Game as the KHL’s Hockey Week heads to Ufa, the capital of the republic of Bashkiria.
 
The KHL has unveiled the branding and logo for the showcase which, this season, brings together three big events over the course of the week. Ufa will host the KHL All-Star Game, its youth league equivalent, the MHL Challenge Cup, and the inaugural Women’s Hockey League All-Star Game. The women’s game is not the only new feature: this year, the four top players in the Challenge Cup will be invited to join the megastars of the KHL on the ice for the All-Star Game itself.
 

Bashkiria’s national colors and symbols form the basis of the branding for this festival of hockey. The logo represents Salavat Yulaev, the great Bashkir poet and hero who gives his name to Ufa’s hockey team and whose monument is the city’s most famous attraction. The design makes use of the white, green and blue of the official flag of Bashkiria, a republic within the Russian Federation.

Each of the games at the heart of the biggest hockey show of the season has its own logo. The Challenge Cup updates previous editions, adopting the new color scheme. The Women’s Hockey League emblem is woven into the design for its All-Star Game.

 

Fans can also buy exclusive, specially designed clothing and merchandise for the 2017 All-Star Game. These items will be on sale at the game itself and also via the online stores of the KHL and Salavat Yulaev Ufa.

 

Sergei Dobrokhvalov, the KHL’s Vice President of Marketing and Communications: "The All-Star Game in 2017 will be a unique event, quite different from what we’ve seen before. For the first time in our history, the showcase games of three leagues will combine in a festival of hockey. We are preparing for it with the support of the Bashkir authorities and the directors of Salavat Yulaev Ufa. Together we have created our logo and branding, using the colors and symbols of Bashkiria and Ufa to pay tribute to a region that has a proud tradition of hockey and to invite fans from all over the world to learn more about the traditions of Bashkiria during January’s hockey festival.”

 

Valery Nurgutdinov, CEO of Salavat Yulaev Ufa: “We welcome the creation of this logo, which incorporates our national hero, Salavat Yulaev. It is a double pleasure for us because the image of this victorious warrior symbolizes the Republic of Bashkiria and our club, that bears his name. Preparations for the All-Star Game are going to plan. We are working out the details with the KHL and everything that should have been done up to now has been resolved.”

A look at the jersey number, and letter font that will be the same on each jersey.

Also featured within the numbers on the back, there is this neat little design of crossed hockey sticks & diamonds.

Even the player gloves will feature the KHL ASG branding.

Loving the green jersey. Can't believe I'm saying this, but I hop the NHL follows the lead of the KHL: four jerseys for four divisions.

The KHL just managed to blow the NHL, the NBA, and the NFL out of the water in terms of All-Star branding. 

 

Very, very well done on their part.

That would've been a nice LAS VEGAS secondary.

The jerseys are all solid, but I'd like to see a little more differentiation in the whole uniform sets.  I think it might look a little too similar if the matchups were white/blue or green/gold.  White and gold pants might be too much, but having either white/gold or green/blue swap pants could be enough.  Aesthetically, it would make more sense to have the pants match the sleeves; functionally, I'd like to see them mix it up.

Yeah the KHL just put all other major leagues to shame. This is how the NHL should design their All-Star uniforms. Instead it'll be vomit.

I personally really like the White (far left), and Blue (2nd from left) uniforms the best.  Those colours real pop well together. Green is third best IMO.

Those green and yellow uni's would be good if Seattle ever got a team.

Those are absolutely incredible, I love every bit of it. As much as I love this year's NHL ASG jerseys, these are 10x better.

This is a Russian league?  Why is everything in English, and not Cyrillic?

But, then I ask the same about Japanese baseball jerseys.....
