Sockers Unveil 40th Anniversary Logo
The 14-time champion San Diego Sockers unveiled the team's 40th anniversary to begin their “Legacy Of Champions” celebration. The new logo, which will be used during the upcoming 2018-19 MASL season, was designed by the Sockers Creative & Marketing Departments. San Diego kicks off its anniversary celebration at the season opener on Sunday, December 16, 5:05 p.m. against Rio Grande Valley at Valley View Casino Center.
The circular logo with a ribbon near the bottom incorporates elements from the team's history. The top of the logo features the San Diego skyline, which is taken from the current crest, represents America's Finest City. A row of 14 gold stars representing the club's 14 championships is underneath the skyline. In the center, is the iconic Sockers logo with the NASL soccer ball from the 1980's and early 1990's representing the team's legendary years. The anniversary tagline, "A Legacy of Champions," is written in script font inside the banner. The anniversary dates and years of the anniversary are represented by the placement of "1978" and "2018" inside the right and left edges of the ribbon, and "40 Years" in bold font is at the bottom of the logo.
