You might have noticed, over the weekend a few things have changed about the ECS FC.
Let's face it though, kicking the Timbers Army's ass is not one of the new things. Both ECS FC teams dealt with the TA FC teams quite soundly. The first game was a 7-0 win and it was apparent within the first few minutes of the match, this would not be a contest. The second game (that decides the Cascadia Supporters Cup) was a 4-1 win, with the only Portland goal of the weekend coming in the final minutes of the match. It was an amazing day with beautiful football, chants, smoke, and ECS FC going 3-0-1 for the overall record.
First off, you might have noticed our jerseys are sporting our new sponsor's logo, one that the Emerald City Supporters are very familiar with. After the successful launch of the No Equal beer, talks began about a possible sponsorship with ECS FC. After the hard work of some of our staff we're proud to announce Red Hook as our new sponsor. For the next two years you will see Redhook proudly worn on our jerseys (and a very good chance you will see our kits for sale at their brewery!)
You also may have noticed our new crest. We realize it isn't done very often, but with the growing size of ECS FC, we decided it was time to make our crest a little more distinguishable from the standard ECS crest. This crest nicely shows the heart of the ECS logo in the skull, along with the traditional laurel leafs, the year the club was created and calling out that we are the Football Club of the ECS. Another great work of art from our designers.
Finally, you probably noticed our kit partner has changed, as we have now partnered with Adidas. The kits you saw this weekend are the club's 3rd and 4th kits. (Yeah. We roll that deep.) We have worked with Adidas to create customs kits that should be arriving in the next month or so. This weekend's showing was a great effort between Adidas and Schmetzer's Sporthaus to get us kits in time to unveil all of this greatness for the big game so keep an eye out for our Home and Away kits in the next month!
Oh, and you might be reading this from our brand new website created and managed by our awesome web and design crews. This will be the new home for ECS FC and this is just the tip of the iceberg for what they have planned for us, so keep coming back!
Take Em All!
