After 21 years, U.S. Soccer updated their crest, and it’s a slick, streamlined and bold badge of honor that nods to the past but looks to a rich future. The 2016 rebranding draws on the initial 1913 crest with seven red and six white vertical stripes representing America’s foundation and flag. Topping off the stripes are those tried and true three letters in blue: USA. Gone are the distracting stars and the goofy soccer ball from the 1995 crest. Don the shield and ready for a new era in U.S. Soccer.
