New York City FC Allow Fans Final Vote On New Crest For MLS Franchise

When Manchester City revealed they were in talks with the New York Yankees to create a new MLS franchise, the world sat up and took notice.

Yet the two clubs – despite being amongst the biggest sporting institutions in the world and having a lengthy list of directors involved in the development of New York City FC – are set to offer their fan’s the final say on the club’s new badge.

The two designs were both created by Rafael Esquer, and New York City’s sporting director Claudio Reyna has thanked the designer for his contribution.

Reyna said: “Thanks to the work of Rafael Esquer we feel that we have two designs that truly represent our Club and our City, and we’re excited to see which badge they choose.”

He also explained why the final decision has been given to the fans, saying: “This badge is to be the symbol of our Club, a symbol of our players and we hope in time, a symbol of this City. That is why we decided to give our fans the power to take part in such a fundamental way.”

New York City’s manager Jason Kreis’ son submitted his own idea at the initial stage and to be fair we think it puts the official designs to shame:

Dinosaurs and lightening bolts – it’s what every football badge is secretly calling out for.
