Petition to Scrap Leeds United’s New Crest Reaches 25,000 Signatures in Two Hours

Leeds United have unveiled a new design for their club crest – and it’s definitely not been received as well as the club’s hierarchy had probably hoped.

Given Leeds’ rich and vibrant history in not only English but European football too, any attempt to tamper and alter with the very fabric of the club’s history was unlikely to ever do well – particularly when your idea of a replacement badge is absolutely horrendous.

According to the Leeds Twitter account, the club consulted more than 10,000 supporters over a six-month period – and this monstrosity is where they ended up:

As you can imagine, it wasn’t long before all and sundry were complaining about the new logo, and a petition has been started on to stop owner Andrea Radrizzani from going through with it.

At the time this article was published – which was just over two hours after the petition was started – almost 25,000 people had signed up in support.

What do you think of the new crest? Is it really that bad?
