Tous pour gagner? Anything to win?

Perfect slogan for soccer, a sport notorious for diving :therock:

I'm not a font expert, but what are the two fonts on the crest?

Ironically enough, neither is Impact.

On the whole, I rather like it. Good shield shape, FdL not too much, silly nickname downplayed. Can't stand gradients, but this could've been so much worse.

What do the four stars represent?

According to this article it represents the 4 settlers of Montreal as illustrated on the flag. Yes, this flag.

I guess the 4 stars represent the 4 floral logos?

Don't like the gradients, but otherwise thumbs up. It looks like we can guess what the uniforms will look like from the logo.

actually, I believe it's more like "all to win", not "anything".

Could be a play on the Musketeer motto "All for one and one for all" ("Tous pour un, un pour tous").

Yeah, "tous" is more "everything" than "anything".

I dont think the gradients are a permanent part of the logo. Same treatment was applied to the Sporting KC logo when it was first unveiled.

Tout pour gagner would mean anything to win

Tous pour gagner means Everyone to win

Top font is Bank gothic. Don't know the font of Impact and Montreal.

Overall, nice logo. Certainly lacks black in the top part of the shield. Gradients: not cool, on jerseys, not sure the jerseys will have gradients.

I believe you have a good idea of what the jersey will look like.

In my opinion, Canada MLS logos:

1. Vancouver Whitecaps: great idea, colors, excecution

2. Montreal Impact: nice colors, a bit traditional, the logo have signification

3. Toronto FC: They don't even have a name. How can they have an identity. Awful logo. No matter why BMO made eveything to sponsor another team.

Quick, someone tell Liverpool they don't have an identity!

Between the 0:20 to 0:30 mark, does anyone else notice that a few of the MLS Club logos are out of place?

Yeah, that was a fairly ignorant remark.

You can see the full map better at the end of the video. Someone needs a geography lesson because apparently San Jose is on the north side of the Bay, Chivas plays north of Santa Barbara, Real is in Idaho, Seattle in Oregon, Columbus in Indiana/Kentucky, KC is in Nebraska.

Yeah.

Love the unveiling video. Would prefer Grey/Blue uni stripes instead of the Inter look....

I did a quick review and didn't notice. Instead of coming from the bottom, the scan of the map is west to east....

You can see the misplacements better if you pause at the 2:16 mark.

This in the release article kinda surprised me...

Also of note, the new jersey, which will bear the new club logo as well as the Bank of Montreal (BMO) logo, the presenting partner of the Impact in MLS, will be unveiled next November.

Toronto getting a jersey sponsor next year??

No BMO re-upped last season to keep their mark on TFC kits until 2016 at something like 4 million a year.
