No New England team? :( This sounds really interesting though, happy to help where I can!

I rethought this and gonna move the Tampa team to form a New England team for balanced divisions

What about Ellis Island CC? Distinctly New York, ties in the idea of the Immigrants..hell they could be nicknamed "The Immigrants"

Not bad, but the more I think about it, there's probably gonna be a lot of immigrants on every team haha. Half the national team I saw were from different countries but became citizens.

Nice! Good start for sure. I’m gonna whip up a concept tonight and was gonna do a pentagon so good call on that

Here's more what I was thinking

I like black as a neutral color. Then the rainbow colors are the multiculturalism of the city and subway. 5 Burroughs are represented with the shape and colors.

 

Also today US Cricket announced some restructuring. Basically they're using the regional idea I had, but there's 6 regions. So just to sort of make it fall into line, we're gonna do 4 more teams.So that means we got shafted with a northeastern division mostly. So the new teams will be Long Island, Connecticut in the East. Raleigh in the Mid Atlantic, Nashville and Tampa again in the southeast. Unfortunately we're cutting Austin because of the other Texas teams, Colorado would be the home team for US Cricket, and KC would be cool.

Gorgeous. Love the more unique color scheme and the symbolism. That font looks better too. If alternates are being included would you be open to using a reworked version of my logo to better fit this design?

Thanks! I was thinking about your logo, and the options would be to recolor it and have a decent alternate but it’d be weird to have two different pentagons.

 

but we can do another team while I play with that template!

Lets try this again! So apparently Philly is the home of cricket in America, so naturally they got the expansion nod. It seems like a lot of their clubs are upper class people playing. The Philadelphia Cricket Club already exists, and they're really old.

Naturally we could shy away from the Native American bit, or it could be an homage. I would try to make it very old looking, just since our New York crest came out real clean and modern. Things that come to mind are keystones, and the Philadelphia city flag, which are Chargers colors. 

 

Let me know if anyone (other than Bruins, cause I know he's down) has a name or logo idea and we can work through this!

What about like the Philadelphia Founders if you want an American style team name..or could be like Founders CC

Freely admit that I'm better at coming up with names and stuff than making logos.

Oh, I do like this, especially because you originally thought of Philadelphia as the league home--you could make a history where the league headquarters moved from Philadelphia to Denver.

Definitely not bad, i’m just not sure if the whole Founders thing would work with such a gap in start to finish in a “new” league. I do like that thinking tho, the first cricket club for Americans was formed in 1833 in Philadelphia. 

 

What if we did something like Philadelphia Commonwealth CC. Pennsylvania is a commonwealth, and is a play on the commonwealth of nations, who historically all play cricket

Philly Commonwealth CC is the only way you could fit in Philadelphia's name, since Philadelphia itself is a mouthful but 10 syllables is too much for any team. Unless of course you're the Angels.

We could even do Penn Commonwealth CC.

I'd love to see a Boston team.  Also, I do love the NY rainbow one.

Thanks! And yeah we expanded, Boston gets a team

Did some brainstorming today and came up with this.  It's got the shield and middle stripe of Philadelphia's coat of arms with a keystone, monogram, and wicket.  I tried fooling around with other colors (I had a nice navy and cream look at one point), but I feel like this is the best combination I could come up with for this design.
