The upcoming St. Louis MLS club will have their brand reveal Aug. 13, giving fans a first glimpse at their new name, crest and colors. Ahead of the big moment, club brass asked fans to give their input and suggestions on what they'd like to see. The resulting submissions have provided for some grade-A content.
The club's Twitter account shared some of the most eccentric ones. They might not win the final sweepstakes, but it's hard not to imagine the possibilities of the "St. Louis Lazer Snakes."
When we asked for team name suggestions last fall, over 5,000 fans submitted entries! Some were great. Others were… interesting? 😳 Lazer Snakes didn’t quite rise to the top, but we can’t wait to reveal our name, crest and colors on 8.13.20! 🙌🙌 #MLS4THELOU pic.twitter.com/JOKoD7PyJP— MLS4TheLou (@MLS4theLou) July 27, 2020
"Kicky McKickerton's Football Club" isn't half bad either, especially with that logo. The submissions generated so much discussion online that St. Louis followed up with a few more that wound up in the discard pile.
Ask and ye shall receive! Behold a few more fan-submitted team names that didn't quite make the cut. Not a day goes by that we don't second guess ourselves on Trash Pandas, though... pic.twitter.com/Vac1WIUW4T— MLS4TheLou (@MLS4theLou) July 27, 2020
Credit to whoever came up with "Louventus" even if it's not the final winner. We'll see if the club can top any of these when their brand reveal takes place in just over two weeks!
