City History

Before you can design anything for your team, you need to know the history of your city. Use these resources to get a sense of what your city is all about, and the cultural context that your uniform, logo, and mascot should reflect.


There are lots of uniform generators out there. Here are some to get you started!


Logos and mascots are also important parts of sports teams. They are developed with team and city history in mind. Create yours accordingly!
