Fort Lauderdale Strikers Crest & Kits Unveiled

The new Strikers unveiled their primary logo/crest today as part of the city of Fort Lauderdale's 100th birthday celebration:

As a Strikers supporter I think it's pretty sharp. It has all the elements from the classic Strikers identity, with the sun, "Ft. Lauderdale" script and the "Strikers" and hoops from the jersey, only now in a proper shield. I especially dig the Fort Lauderdale beach wall/columns on the sides. Really nice local touch.

The only thing I'm not crazy about is the "Football Club" on there, but I can live with it.

Also, they've totally outclassed both of the "Rowdies" NASL reboot attempts by a wide margin, which pleases the Tampa-hater in me:

Love the columns, colors, hoops, sun and ball. But what's with that unused scroll along the bottom?

The "unused scroll along the bottom" is the continuation of the scroll from the words "football club" I believe.

Yeah I think so too.

I think it's fantastic, and is easily the class of the NASL. (Carolina's is also nice, but the rest are generally crap.)

Also, it appears that the NASL has quietly started using a new logo on its site, unless I just missed the announcement:

I came in here expecting the worst. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised. That's a really classy logo that achieves my personal preference of being modern, yet keeping classic ties to the past. Great crest, like Mockba said, this is easily the best looking crest in the NASL.

They launched the new logo along with the new website and the new commish just today actually. Looks pretty sweet.

The new Strikers kits were revealed tonight, I bought mine at the event:

Not the same wide hoops as the original Strikers(see below for comparison), but not bad for a Joma template. They were working on a short timeframe to get the shirts done and these will do for year one I think. The road kits are all white with the crest centered and "Strikers" across the front in black, and the keeper shirt is light blue.

I really love this logo. The colors work together perfectly, the crest is aesthetically pleasing and the entire package is modern while incorporating the NASL history. I really hope this team becomes successful so we can see this logo for a long time. Bravo Ft. Lauderdale, you've got a great logo/kit package.

The crest looks great. The shirt, not so much. Having a black collar would've helped. It would've complemented the "STRIKERS" word mark and Joma logo to make them seem less pronounced...although if anything, other than the fact that it mimics the original uniform, directing attention to the team's name might've been the point all along.
