New York City Football Club, Major League Soccer’s 20th team unveiled their new team crest last night. NYCFC crowdsourced their new crest through a contest in which graphic designers could submit their sample ideas. Supporters could then vote on which crest they felt would be the one that best represented the franchise. The contest ultimately came down to two different crests but it was the circular one that prevailed. The colors in the crest take homage to NYCFC’s owners who also own MLB’s New York Yankees and English Premier League’s Manchester City.
NYCFC will play their debut MLS season in 2015.
