I've got to throw my hat in against the antlers as well.  Symbolism's a nice perk and all, but it has to look good first - and you really can't tell those are antlers unless you know they're antlers (and still, it clashes).

I like the idea of the antlers... but I don't know, it doesn't quite jive yet... Can you try moving the antlers out a bit (ie, so they're attached to the logo, rather than being behind the logo)?

(PS - I really like FC Red Deer)

:P

again, my personal preference is for the antlers, because they are somewhat crown like(a canadian version of a lions mane if you will) which distinguishes it as the top league.  

But I included the one without for those that prefer that

was tricky coming up with a supplementary symbol for the west because it's so big/diverse, but let me know what you think of the three I chose.  I'm not even sure if they need the supplementary symbols but I thought it was worth taking a look at.

I'm not sure how this would look, because I'm not exactly artistic, but would it work with the white symbols going below the acronyms? The "1" is already hard enough when you glance at it to not think of it as the letter i, having they symbol directly above the 1 makes me see "lio" and "lie" even more.

BTW, that isn't meant to be a criticism of your 1 in particular, it's something that pops in my head a lot when I see L1O mentioned.

And yes, no antlers for me either. You do great work, and I love coming back here to see what you've been cooking up, but I honestly thought the antlers were a joke when you first introduced them.

Keep up the great work!

I'll throw an idea out there for a logo, Guillermo.

Say soccer takes off in Canada for the next 40 years, or magically overnight we had the pyramid of a more developed soccer country. Small cities would have their teams similar to junior hockey, but I think you'd also see county/country/regional/ teams in rural areas with spread out populations. 

I live in such an area, Norfolk County, and I think that's what would happen here. There is a strong county identity here that crosses the small-town divisions. Norfolk Tourism promotes it as "Ontario's Garden" due to being Ontario or Canada's leading producer of over 20 different crops, or "Ontario's South Coast" from the beach towns along Lake Erie.

County Flag, Logo, and Coat of arms write-ups: http://www.norfolkcounty.ca/visiting/about-norfolk-county/

Local soccer clubs Simcoe Youth, Simcoe Elite (the Lightning), and Norfolk Soccer (the Royals) all seem to use pretty generic soccer ball logos from what I can find.

Can you try down sizing the antlers and fitting them on the maple leaf similar to the L1O idea you got there but not in white. Stay gold.

the problem would be that CPL won't show up with gold behind it as well.  not enough contrast.

lol not to mention everyone except you and me hate the antlers hahaha

Anyone got ideas for potential cities in this new BC league?  

Color me inspired by all the recent happenings.  

The usual list would be something like:

Victoria, Nanaimo, Vancouver, Surrey, Kelowna, Penticton, Abbotsford and New Westminster. Give or take. :)

Hey, that's nice and all, but could you make it look like a real logo (like the Juventus one)?

thought these might make a bit more sense to start off with.  CPL is good but I think it makes sense to have the actual words for the first little while so that everyone knows what its for.

Barclays Premier League used to say it, but now that it's world recognized it just has the lion.  Same idea here.
