Virginia Beach City FC 

Nickname: VB City

Home field: Powhatan Field, Norfolk, VA

Founded: 2013

Titles: 2 conference championships

 

Logo: I tried to make the trident logo look less sharp designing a rounder shield. The reduced lettering enables to get rid of the top text bar of the previous logo.

Kit: The kit is a rethinking of this year Juventus kit, where, instead of having the usual striped jersey, the bicolor shirt makes the players the stripes themselves. The clash kit is just a white color swap.

I'm gonna have to say that the actual crest still looks better, but your version isn't bad either. Though you can definitely improve on the home kit by removing the golden stripe in the middle altogether and then make the left sleeve on the black side blue. That way, it has a little more balance of the colours and you don't need to have the back name and numbers in a black box.

I got rid of the gold striping as you suggested, but the black boxes are there to stay. I tried to delete them but the double color backgrond for the sponsor, name and number was a a real pain for the eyes. Let me know what you think of it. Surely it is a cleaner look, that with soccer kits works well, but I personally still like the first version more.

If you’re gonna use a round shield, use a rounder trident too so the shapes go together better. Also why is the top border of the shield missing?

I changed the shield shape. It is now more similar to the trident and it flows better with it. Your opinion?

Electric City Shock SC 

Nickname: -

Home field: Quinn Athletics Campus, Scranton, PA

Founded: 2013

Titles: -

 

Logo: I was inspired by the famous Electric City light sign. 800px-Scranton_Electric_Building.JPG The colour scheme is blue and yellow (instead of volt) with the addtion of a tone of brass.

 

Kit: The home kit is pinstriped in a lighter tone of blue to represent the classy feeling of the city of Scranton at the peak of its fame. The gray clash kit is not a big departure from their actual clash jersey, but I added some bolt-shaped diagonal stripes.

FC Monmouth

Nickname: -

Home field: Count Basie Stadium, Red Bank, NJ

Founded: 2017

Titles: -

 

Logo: I like a lot their simple yet sharp logo. I just have a problem with the shield ''open'' text stripe, it seems a little dispersive on a jersey of the wrong color, so I decided to enclose it on a full shield and to have the lettering inside the yellow top part.

 

Kit: The home kit was inspired by the logo itself. The clash kit pays homage to Fort Monmouth, an army base found within the county's boundaries.

Philadelphia Lone Star Football Club

Nickname: The Stars

Home field: South Philadelphia Athletic Super Site, Philadelphia, PA

Founded: 2018 (2001 as Junior Lone Star FC)

Titles: -

 

Logo: I used their actual logo, as it is nicely done and very meaningful.

 

Kit: The home kit plays around the striping of the shield, with 7 vertical red stripes. The clash kit is inspired by the parted shield, with the two tones of blue symbolising the blue from Philadelphia's city flag and the blue from the liberian flag

Atlantic City Football Club

Nickname: ACFC, Aces

Home field: Surf Stadium, Atlantic City, NJ

Founded: 2017

Titles: -

Motto: Audaces Fortuna Iuvat (luck helps the bold)

 

Logo: I used their actual secondary roundel logo with just minor tweaks in the wording. It has a neat design and looks like a football badge. The gambling inspired logo is spot on for this team.

 

Kit: The home kit is centered around the two tone purple, with the hoops reminding of casino chips. The clash kit is just a white version of the home.

I'm currently working on Hershey FC and I can't made up my mind on the logo. On the left you have the actual logo and A and B are the options I designed. What do you suggest?

Just speaking from a former employee perspective here, maybe work in Norfolk into your rebrand rather than Virginia Beach considering they play 30 minutes away from Virginia Beach now.  Additionally a USL League 2 side moved into their former stadium.

Hershey Football Club

Nickname: Panthers

Home field: Hershey High School Soccer Stadium, Hershey, PA

Founded: 2013

Titles: -

 

Logo: I based my new design on their old logo, trying to retain their iconic sash. Nothing too fancy here.

 

Kit: The home kit is inspired by their actual clash kit, with the gradient striping underlining an invisible sash. The clash kit is a more classic kit, inspired by the crest.

Football Club Morristown

Nickname: FC Motown

Home field: Ranger Stadium, Madison, NJ

Founded: 2012

Titles: 1 conference title (2018)

 

Logo: I evolved their actual logo, changing gray with a darker tone of green and eliminating the New Jersey shape that looked wrong in there. The overall identity is heavily inspired by irish culture.

 

Kit: The home kit is inspired by the celtic cross in the logo. The clash kit is inspired by the irish meadows and the grass grooming on soccer fields.

West Chester United Soccer Club

Nickname: Predators

Home field: Ciccarone Field, West Chester, PA

Founded: 1976

Titles: -

 

Logo: The concept is based on their actual logo, but instead of a roundel I used the shield shape of the eagle chest. The double-headed eagle itself is a bit upgraded, with anew body shape and no giant white and empty eyes. The logo as been around for some time, so I sticked with the bicromatic tradition.

 

Kit: The alternate white and black striping should resembles the eagle wings. At first I used a wider striping, more like traditional Juve jerseys, but then I realised that for an average american it was way too referee looking...So, now you have this smaller width, quasi-pinstripe look. For the clash kit I used another bicromatic pairing, but of a whole different hue. The chest stripe is inspired by an old clash kit, that had a blue chest stripe on a black jersey, omittingthe very '90s fading gradient.

I like the change on the shield, I do think the gold striping on the jersey itself looks better, just because it looks more like a trident. I know this is late but I'm just now looking through a bunch of other concepts.

Just looking through all of these, they're all really good. One question (I'm sorry if it was answered earlier), some of the cities (West Chester, Hershey, etc), do seem a little small for a top-tier team, is there a particular reason for those towns above others?

Never mind, it would help to read the intro, didn't realize this was a fourth-tier league.

Torch Football Club

Nickname: -

Home field: Pennridge High School Stadium, Perkasie, PA

Founded: 2009

Titles: -

 

Logo: Their actual logo is not that terrible, I especially like the lettering, but I had to redo that super-ClipaArty ball. Hope I succeded in improving the logo flow.

 

Kit: I tried some gradient here for both home and clash kits. The final results remind me a bit of some Nike third jerseys around the world, only more firey.

As the NPSL expands, I try to stay up to date. I have redesigned the conference logos to mirror the new conferences allignment. 

The Northestern region is now with the addition of the Southeast conference the East region.

In the Midwest region the East conference is now the Rust Belt conference, so I added some machinery flare to the conference logo.

In the South region we have the new Gulf Coast conference. It was pretty difficult to find a simple symbol for this area and in the end I went with a hurricane.
