West Ham is goiing to Umbro on a 5 year deal after their deal with Adidas is finished, I really hope they can keep producing next year as well (Umbro, that is.)

So is adidas switching focus to Chelsea and United instead of taking all of London? I hope Southampton picks someone else to do their unis since adidas bungled it this year. I did notice they still have adidas adverts on the adboards.

I hope Southampton picks nobody next year since they did a really good job of supplying their own kit this year.

Same here. But something tells me they'll ride out the contract and then go to another kit sponsor.

From today's new MLS LA (Chivas replacement) Ownership Announcement, via @kbaxter11:

So it's LAFC, I guess. Wouldn't be surprised to see red in the final identity, given Vincent Tan's involvement with the new ownership group.

EDIT: And here's their red and black website: http://lafc.com/

I hope that's only the working name. Maybe it works in Toronto, but I think it's a big mistake to go generic when you have to complete with a well-defined, unique brand in the same city. At least the "City" in NYCFC serves as a branding piece in New York.

I'm seeing multiple sources on twitter say it's a working title.

I think it's smart. What better way to be more LA than the Galaxy than to just be LA. I can see people referring to the teams as the Galaxy and LA. Very smart.

I agree.

I also think it's a sharp color scheme, unused in the West. Hope they keep both that and the name.

I feel like the name would be better changed but I do like LAFC too. And the colors are great- Gothamite previously mentioned that it's a unique look for the west coast.
Also their website may be showing locations that they're considering: http://lafc.com/#Location

They have a lot of areas earmarked it would seem: downtown, Gardena, West Hollywood, et al, but what I found interesting was the numerous teams in East/South LA, particularly near Anaheim and Orange County.
What I can gather, however, is that fans are going to participate heavily- choosing a logo, picking the location, everything it seems. Maybe even the name if they want to.
Well, who knows? Maybe they'll be better than their predecessor, but that won't be a terribly hard feat.

Just clicked on the link here at work only for our filters to block is as "Suspicious." I didn't realize Tan was so well known here in the US.

Surprisingly, Dortmund is sporting the amazingly beautiful black away shirts tonight at Munich. Haven't seen that in a very long time.

Is there any good logo I could use on FIFA 15 UT that is not a big shot team? (i.e. Man U, Liverpool, etc)
