While Major League Soccer has undergone a host of changes since its inception, one thing that has remained the same is its logo.
Plans to alter it have been in the works for some time, however, and MLS is ready to go with a new look.
MLS has scheduled a major announcement in New York City on Thursday regarding “the future of our league,” and sources have informed SBI that it will be the unveiling of a new logo.
MLS has long stated that it would design a new logo to commemorate the league’s 20th season in 2015, but part of the reason why it will be unveiled on Thursday is because MLS wanted it to be included in the newest edition of EA Sports’ extremely popular soccer video game, FIFA 15.
FIFA 15 is scheduled to be released in the United States, Canada and the rest of North America next Tuesday, but EA Sports is, not by coincidence, having its launch party for the game in New York City on Thursday. The new logo will be in the game, helping to usher in a new era for MLS.
What do you think of MLS’s plans to unveil a new logo? Hoping to see minor or drastic changes? Should the league just continue with the one it has or is it too plain for your liking?
