NYC FC is expected to unveil its official badge at a press conference in New York City on Thursday, March 13, according to a local soccer source.
Sports apparel maker adidas is expected to be part of the unveiling, the source said.
The Major League Soccer expansion team, which will make its debut in March 2015, on Feb. 4 started a campaign in which club supporters could create their own soccer badge designs.
Those designs that are submitted will become a pixel of the official New York City FC team badge mosaic. That badge will become a tribute to the founding fans of the expansion team who were with them from the very beginning.
Jason Kreis, who directed Real Salt Lake to the 2013 MLS Cup final against eventual winner Sporting Kansas City, was named NYC FC coach in December. He is in Manchester, England, learning Manchester City methods and ways. City owns NYC FC.
