NYC FC Branding

Recommended Posts

There are a couple of other 'combo' Uniteds in the English Leagues...

  • Rotherham United, formed from the the merger of Rotherham County and Rotherham Town.
  • Torquay United, formed from Torquay Town and Babbacombe - although the waters are muddied somewhat as Town were the result of a previous merger in which one of the teams already carried the United suffix.
  • We could also count Hartlepool United - formerly Hartlepools United - named to represent the twin towns of Hartlepool and West Hartlepool.
  • There was also the now defunct Burton United, formed from Burton Swifts and Burton Wanderers.

In the main though, 'United' has become a generic name in the same way as Rovers or Town/City. What the MLS really needs, however, is a 'Stanley'. ;)

Accrington Stanley, who are they?

Exactly!

I'm sure NYCFC will play in a corporate-branded stadium. Red Bull Arena, from the looks of it!

If we're talking about Atlanta, Silverbacks is the right choice. But I like continuity, even if it's a somewhat-silly name.

Primate United :P

I don't get the joke

Poking fun at the Euro vs North American name debate. Also, possibly the name of a soccer club on Planet of the Apes.

According to their twitter, some merch will be available this summer and kits will be unveiled in the fall.

The club is going full-speed on its season-ticket campaign.

I love their graphic design, especially the use of Gotham.

I'm really impressed at the ambition of their ad buy. Almost a full year before their first game, and their logo is all over the city.

This is a good indicator of why some people in the area feel that Red Bull haven't done enough to engage the city.

Even though I despise Mansour (my sole reason for not supporting NYCFC) I have to say that NYC isn't going to be that hard for the blues (or whatever nickname comes up for them) to conquer if they keep on doing what they are doing and can field a good team on the field from the jump.

Ouch. I've said it before; NYCFC was made absolutely necessary by Red Bull's utter failure to engage the soccer community in New York.

This guy had some interesting ideas - wonder what was it that the Austrians objected to?

The guy that replaced him did come up with an idea of engaging NYC fans by having interns run around with horns and act like total morons years ago.

Having been in New York the last few days, there were a lot of ads around the city, especially in the subway.

This David Villa shirsey probably isn't a great indication of what the kits will look like, but it's a good opportunity to get one before a sponsor logo is slapped on it.

You're probably right, although it's a shame. I'd love to see something clean and classic.

But man, that "7" just doesn't look right on its own.

I'm hearing a rumor that Etihad will not be the shirt sponsor. Don't think I believe it, but here's hoping.

The club has also worked up some new Gotham-heavy print ads promoting Villa ahead of the World Cup (shrewd move). I love this one, across the street from Madison Square Garden:

Expect to see versions of this on the subway soon.

Wow I'm late, I had no idea they signed David Villa. That's awesome. What a good get for the MLS in general. Someone bring Ibrahimovic to DC U

Billboards across from MSG seem to be popular amongst nascent New York sports franchises

And why not? It's a very high-profile location, with all the traffic for MSG itself, to say nothing of Penn Station. Plus it's associated with sports in general.

That Nets ad, however, was something special: a deliberate attempt to tweak the nose of the Knicks' owners.

All these pictures make New York City look phenomenal to a suburban kid like me. Definitely some cool advertisements for New York.

I'm assuming the kit they eventually unveil won't be much different than what has already been released. I can't imagine them adding any stripes or lines other than maybe the usual Adidas default lines.

I like the number font and the crest looks pretty good, so far so good for the new New York side.

We'll see. The font is league-wide, so we know they'll use it. They've confirmed a sky blue shirt, the rest is all speculation, although I'm hoping for as simple a design as Adidas can provide.

I'm probably going to visit my uncle in New York this summer and to see Milan play Olimpiacos at Citi. I'm really looking forward to it.

The less NYCFC has to do with the UAE the better.

I don't think there's anything particularly wrong with it, I'd just prefer a strictly local sponsor. And not the same one as Man City.
