Omaha Transcontinental FC

Recommended Posts

Omaha Transcontinental FC is a Major League Soccer team, located in Omaha, Nebraska. Omaha is known as being a sports city (it is known as the "amateur sports capital of the world"), however, currently it has no professional sports teams. Any team that would be located there would have a high probability for success. The name "Transcontinental" comes from the fact that Omaha was the starting point for the First Transcontinental Railroad across the United States. Omaha is home to the headquarters of the Union Pacific Railroad, the largest railroad company in the United States, and has a strong association with the railroads and trains in general. Additionally, Omaha is home to many very wealthy people, so that would provide opportunities for local investment and ownership. 

 

Badge

Description: A 3-pointed shield, with two crossed lines to appear as railroad tracks, with a golden spike (which was used at the symbolic completion of the Transcontinental Railroad), and a soccer ball.

Uniforms

Description: Features the team's colors (gold on black for home, black on gold for away), with a set of parallel lines running diagonally across the torso (to represent railroad tracks), fading off to the bottom corner. The jersey sponsor is the Union Pacific Railroad.

Promotional Poster

Description: Features the Omaha skyline and the club's badge, with the hashtag #HellOnCleats. When the Transcontinental Railroad was built, the moving "town" that followed the workers was known as "Hell On Wheels". From that, the phrase "Hell on Cleats" comes (soccer players wear cleats).

Stadium

Union Pacific Stadium (would be a new stadium, total capacity: 62,000)

Would be shared with the NFL Expansion team, the Omaha Engineers (Concept: https://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/120430-nfl-expansion-x-viperion101/?tab=comments#comment-3034201 . I know on there it says "Locomotives", but the concept, logo, and uniforms would stay the same, the name would just be changed to "Engineers".). The capacity would probably be reduced for soccer, probably only keeping the lower 3 tiers and end seating open.

Unwieldy as it is, the rail history buff in me really digs the name.

As far as the badge, it's not terrible.  But I would start by making the shield and ball white.  The emphasis should be on the golden spike, but as it is, it gets lost in the background of everything else.
