  • Logos, Portland Timbers

I have to say I’m a little shocked to hear that the Portland Timbers will have a new logo come next year when they enter Major League Soccer. There’s something nice about the current logo that I just hate to see them ago away from here.

Maybe I’m wrong and the new logo which will debut on June 12 will surprise me.

I guess in a way they figure to start a new era in MLS they need to have a new(ish) look and feel to them. I just hope they don’t mess with this current look too much.

Maybe it will end up looking like this logo that was talked about a while back:

    “At the outset, I would say that our logo in MLS should unequivocally not be exactly the same as it is in USL-1. We are making a move to major league. This is not simply a Championship League team being promoted to the EPL … The franchise is being elevated and significant change will be taking place (in a good way) on many levels. A new logo is critical to represent that change.”

    i don't want to be a pessimist, but i guarantee it will be a step in the wrong direction. their current logo is great.

    it wont change much, its for their own good. There is a logo out there with two roses, its nice. But it wont change much, also i think the timbers should have stripes in their uniforms. And maybe it will push the crew, wizards, dynamo, impact, new england, fire, san jose to a new logo
