The NFL has been in the news a lot lately, even causing people who wouldn’t consider themselves football fans to pay attention.
Football can teach you skills that will provide benefits throughout your adult life. It can help you to be more disciplined, bring you closer to your teammates, improve your fitness level, and boost your leadership skills. All of which are the basis for success in any career.
Perhaps this is why so many people want to create and join their own football teams.
To build teamwork, spread the word about your team, and just to make your weekend games a little more fun, you should design a football logo.
But what elements do you need to make it work?
Read on to find out.
A Defining Image
The most important aspect of your team’s logo?
It’s central image.
It can be tough to choose the one that’s right for you. However, think about what makes your team unique. If you’re all retirees, you could use a tongue-in-cheek image, like two crossed canes that have sharp, dagger points at the end.
Or, you can choose the image based on your town or neighborhood. Is there a statue that everyone stops to look at on your block?
What about a historic symbol or image that’s close to your team’s heart?
The sky’s the limit here.
Another crucial part of your logo design?
The colors you choose to fill in your image with. In general, it’s a good idea to stick to just two or three. However, don’t be afraid to go bold!
You want your fans to be able to spot your players on the field.
Plus, choosing specific “colors” for your team also helps you to connect with your fans. Now, they know the colors they should wear on game day, or which shades they should use to paint their signs.

Wouldn’t it be nice for your team to have that same brand recognition?
A Logo That’s Easy To Resize
Your football logo will have to go a lot of different places. Think team jerseys, signs, your social media accounts, and even on temporary tattoos fans can wear on game day!
You want to ensure that your design can fit everywhere it needs to go, without becoming muddled.
When creating your logo, make sure that you’ve selected an image that’s easy to resize.
