How’s this for a tree, not that abomination. 

 

:censored: Precourt, and :censored: MLS for letting it happen. It’s a shame enough to steal the original team, but it’s also terrible to replace such a great identity with another new black dominant team (LAFC, Miami). This logo just sucks, too. 

 

Everythings just one big slap in the face from Pre:censored: at this point.

City of Oakland & the Warriors might not be fans of this too...

The first MLS team with a beer can logo for a crest.

 

This whole Austin thing stinks.

I like the color combination, but that doesn't outweigh my feelings of the dirty tricks done to move the franchise from Columbus. And, yes, compared to the new LAFC and Miami logos -- this just doesn't cut it. Nothing about it says major league.

The tree is a bad symbol for Austin because Austin bulldozed its last tree for some more poorly thought out development.

 

Also LOL bond between club and city.... L'Audace, L'Audace, Toujours L'Audace.

As this thread is in the Sports Logos section of the forum, please keep the discussion focused on the design of the Austin FC crest. Any discussion of the situation surrounding the team and its relocation should be in the Sports in General forum.

Steve Wolf and The Butler Bros did an amazing job on this identity. I actually logged in just to post about this and saw the thread had already been created.

To show how the club got uprooted.

Honestly, I don't hate the logo. Austin Athletic should've been the name, though Columbus Crew should've been the name, though.

I hope against hope this doesn’t actually happen, but I do like that crest. 

 

A tree is a wonderful symbol for a club. From the roots to the many branches.  Very Tolkien.

The color scheme is unique, and the whole thing is nicely balanced. 

 

Maybe Precourt can salvage something by selling it to Nottingham Forest - it would be a huge upgrade for them.

Sorry, San Antonio.

Looks like all this is going to waste...

Even their copywriting nonsense graphic is historically bad. Our logo has the city name on it! Green means creative! We have compasses!

They haven't used that logo for years. It's been San Antonio FC since SS&E bought the team.

 

This is the current logo:
