Seems so odd to bail on an identity after just one year, especially when the original brand didn't seem to be all that flawed.

Changing their identity a little bit isn't going to fix what their real problems are. (Apparently there's a lot of fighting behind the scenes...very reminiscent of early TFC days). 

 

My reaction to this was "meh".

I think using the word "united" instead of the number 9 to convey that this club is supposed to represent the 9 towns/cities makes more sense but "whatever".

5) Can you get to the 9 York municipalities via a US interstate?

The crown on top of the shield is actually more reminiscent of Ontario highway signs.

I'm just so tired of "United" as a name. Just plain York FC would have been better. Also, I liked the super bright green in the previous colour scheme.

I like the new logo. Everything comes together alright and I barely notice the line weight issues. And in all fairness, this is the first CPL team to call themselves United. We're all just tired of it because of MLS overusing it.

I remember a long time ago making a concept for a team in St. John’s, NL called Terra Nova FC. I still think that could be a cool name for a team up there if it ever happens

Wanderers isn't too bad. If any North American team uses Albion, then we know we have gone too far.

I can see a New Englander using it. But I don't know how far it would go.

I was really hoping the USL team in New Mexico would go by New Mexico or Albuquerque Wanderers with a hot air balloon motif.

Halifax Canadian Premier League team to be called the HFX Wanderers -  Sportsnet.ca


Oops. Apologies to Halifax. In my defense, abbreviating it HFX is dumb and so my brain erased it from memory ;);)
