As the first MLS club to be based within New York's five boroughs, the club showed off their official badge a week after allowing fans to choose from two final designs. And the winning crest was inspired by the iconic New York City subways tokens of old.
All that's missing is the graffiti — and would be an improvement on the dull design.
Over 100,000 people voted over a period of three and a half days to determine the winning badge.
Alexi Lalas tweeted a photo of the logo's design and thinks it needs a little more pizazz.
A-. Still think interlaced letter font is too weak. Bold it up! RT @MLS @NYCFC announce their official club badge. pic.twitter.com/iWPvjV8g46That and $2.50 will get you a ride on F-train.
