After two seasons, the Chicago Fire are leaving behind perhaps the worst logo in Major League Soccer, and replacing it with one of the best.
The new logo, which features a light-blue Florian cross with a red “C” and a Chicago six-pointed star, is immediately recognizable as a Chicago Fire logo. It’s a simpler, streamlined version of the club’s original Florian Cross crest. And, hopefully, it’s one that unites the fanbase, after the Fire Crown mess of the last two seasons.
The Fire absolutely had to get this right, and they did.
- New merchandise will go on sale soon, and the first 10,000 fans attending the July 3 Atlanta United match will receive a patch featuring the new logo.
- The Fire will wear a new, navy kit for the 2022 and 2023 seasons, with a return to red home kits slated for 2024.
- This year’s white away “Lakefront” kit will carry over to next season, and will feature the new crest in place of the Fire Crown
