41 Of My Favourite Sports Teams Logo Designs

Determination, skill, effort, passion and the will to win, not to mention a bit of luck on your side as well.... these are some of the criteria that is needed for any respected sports team to be successful on the pitch, arena or anywhere. 

And whilst not all sports generate as many scores, goals, touchdowns and what-have-nots, what they do have in common is that teams have other ways of generating publicity and interest for fans and taking the brand forward, besides the play. One of these is in the form of the logo: from something that looks simple - yet captures and conveys the feel of and epitomizes what the team and the city/country it represents is about, to designs that really make you go 'wow, that is impressive', in terms of their visual appeal, their concept and how that concept transcends what it may say about the people or area it represents. 

Most sports logos encompass at least one of the following elements: an image of an animal or cultural landmark, a type of sports ball, in addition to a font type for the logo and text and bright, bold and contrasting colours. The popular sports teams, particularly those hailing from North America have a recognizable and unique approach for this. 

Here I have chosen my favourite sports teams logos in no particular order; I have included the official ones, as well as the fan-made ones, and selected 21 official logos and 20 fan-made logos. Just because the fan-made ones are usually better than the official logos. Well, most of them, anyway. 

For me, these designs are clean, simple, with bold and bright colours as well as imaginative, creative and original.
