SEATTLE, WA— Seattle Stars FC are revealing a new club crest for 2017 as they await the arrival of new home and away kits that will feature the new badge.
The new Stars badge becomes the 3rd look for the club since it was founded back in 2011. “Stars” have always been the main theme, and “Seattle” has been represented first by a Chief Seattle insignia, then the Space Needle both in profile and up close, and now with a city skyline.
Steven Lynn is the new Team Manager of the Stars and he is providing the momentum for the new look and new kits. Lynn crafted the new logo after rounds of trial efforts and discussions with Stars owner Margarito Vasquez and General Manager Juan Sandoval. “In the final stages of the new design I sent options back and forth with Margarito and Juan over a 20-minute span and we just worked to eliminate what we didn’t want and end up on what we liked,” Lynn says. “We added “Silver Cloud” (gray) to the crest to help all of our signature colors stand out, no matter what color our shirts are. The traditional Seattle Blue and Lime Green are now more adaptable.”
The Stars are ordering adidas tiro 17 uniforms which they hope will be available by their home opener April 30 against the Olympic Force at 6 PM at French Field in Kent. The club will wear Royal Blue shirts, Black shorts and Royal Blue socks at home and Spring Green shirts, Black Shorts, and Black Socks with Spring Green touches away. The Stars are also getting training jackets and training paints. “It’s just part of setting a professional atmosphere and building a positive club culture,” Lynn says.
Steve Lynn comes to the Stars via knowing Juan Sandoval through soccer and business for over 20 years. Lynn has coached youth soccer at South Hill Revolution and Rainier Soccer Alliance. His daughter played at the time. As an independent businessman he also has an eye for structure and culture, which he hopes to help the Stars with. “I am looking forward to assisting Juan, Head Coach Omar Lara and Margarito with continuing to build the Stars program. The new crest and uniforms are something I am excited to be a part of. I want to use my organization and communication skills to make the Stars all the better and to increase both the enjoyment for players and the professionalism of our operation.”
