MANILA--True to the commitment to connect and engage with the fans, United City Football Club, the defending champion of the Philippines Football League, is reaching out to artists to submit and for fans to vote on its new logo design.
“The prize money competition will allow the fans to have a say on what the crest, the most important part of a club's identity, will look like,” stated CEO Eric Gottschalk. “We will strive for tolerance, excellence while creating a place for people to live out their dreams – a true "Club for the People" – it’s a long road ahead but we see this as a marathon and not a sprint.”
Submission of entries has already begun and will run until Monday. Go to United City's Facebook page or follow this link where artists can submit their logo designs.
The winner will receive a customized club jersey featuring the winning logo design along with PHHP10,000 in cash. Shortlisted design artists from 2nd to 5th places will receive PHP1,500 each in cash for their submissions.
Ten fans who choose the winning logo design will be recognized on the club's social media platforms while receiving the customized jersey (number of their choice and name on the back).
The voting will commence from Monday to Tuesday. The winner will be announced in a webinar with Philippine Football Federation president Nonong Araneta and officials of United City on Wednesday.
