Thread: Charlotte FC / MLS Playoffs Thread

    Love the logo, the secondary logo is a bit confusing. I'm fine with Charlotte FC, just as long as it wasn't Charlotte Town I would have been okay with anything else

    Help me out with some MLS history. At what point did MLS move away from “American” team names (KC Wiz) and fashion themselves after European clubs (Sporting KC)? Was it a specific league decision or did it come from the franchises?

    Logo looks fine. The CLITFC logo is weird.

    I'm not MLS historian, but it seems that around the middle of the aughts there was a significant shift: started to bring in older stars from Europe (Beckham in 2007 was one of the first), new teams in 2005 started using European/Latin American naming conventions, started seeing teams build their own stadiums in urban centers as opposed to using stadiums built for other sports or using soccer-specific stadiums in the suburbs.

    The target audience in the early years was families with kids who played soccer and has shifted to urban young adults and families who follow international soccer, very roughly speaking

    Totally disagree about the logo. It's great - the crown and the "minted" reference aren't meh at all

    My first reaction was that "minted" was a really cool idea. I like it.

    Thanks. That makes a lot of sense especially the generational shift.

    The Charlotte Crown (which would eventually just become The Crown) with that logo would have been so tiiiiight.

    Yeah. Plenty of time for that to become the unofficial nickname.

    The CLTFC logo looks like a country club logo.

    They should mint some commemorative coins to mark the occasion.
