As much as the European identity styles are panned, this is an absolutely massive upgrade.

Love the new logo but was there not one person in the committee room that could have pointed out the English meaning of clubfoot.  Embarrassing name.

Foot for soccer doesn't make sense in Quebec, French people here don't use it at all and it's way too "France French" for English people. The fact that they took off the "é" in Montreal is pissing off a lot of folks too. 98% of the comments seem really negatives...

Yeah, chalk it up between myself as a France French speaker and the differences between that and Québec french and it really annoys me.

 

Especially the CF part.

 

Am I shocked? No, but it's still annoying.

The logo without a double dose of Club de Foot Montreal would be alright. What's the point? The reflection of the name in the river?

"Form the core of a snow." "That's intercultural." Congratulations to MLS on being the first league to hire kodrinsky repliers as copywriters.

The club's new colors are Impact Black, deeper and richer, Ice Gray, which represents the ice flowing in all Montrealers' veins, and Sacré Bleu, a darker and more pronounced shade than its predecessor.

It is a great logo, for an outdoor winter sports brand. While they needed a badge refresh, this was woefully overthought and missed the mark. A badge with roots in the Quebec flag would have been a better direction.

Under the lights where we stand tall
Nobody touches us at all
Showdown, shootout
Spread fear within, without
I say we're gonna take what's ours to have
Spread the word throughout the land
They say the bad guys wear black
We're tagged and can't turn back


You see us coming and you all together run for cover
We're taking over this town

 

Here we come, reach for your gun
And you better listen well, my friend
You see, it's been slow down below
Aimed at you, we're the cowboys from Montréal

It's been said many time that it looks like a ski club logo or something. Definitely looks like it or a winter festival one...

It's aesthetically better than last year's Fire logo, but that's if you're looking it in a vacuum. I'd rather have clubbed foot snowflake on my hat than the Fire crown.

 

However, the Fire crown at least understands it's engaged in a sporting activity. This new Montreal identity looks more like a new seasonal line at Roots. What does any of the new logo have to do with soccer?

 

I'm generally okay with out-there ideas -- see my continued appreciation for the new Rams -- but this just feels silly. Like, if you don't want to do sports branding, don't do it!

And it doesn't even make sense in France French -- I can't think of a single team called "Club de Foot" anywhere. Even those teams use FC, or something like AS, or just don't use that construction at all (like the Olympiques and maybe even PSG?). They screwed this up linguistically in two different ways! The logical endpoint of MLS's Epcotization of the game.
