AS Roma Logo, Before and After

About: (Est. 1927) “Associazione Sportiva Roma (AS Roma), commonly referred to as simply Roma, is a professional Italian football (soccer) club based in Rome. Roma have won Serie A three times (in 1941-42, 1982-83 and in 2000-01) as well as winning nine Coppa Italia titles and two Supercoppa Italiana titles. AS Roma plays home games at the Stadio Olimpico (capacity 72,000+)—a venue they share with city rivals Lazio—which is the second largest of its kind in Italy.”

Ed.’s Notes: I don’t know about y’all but if I were the owner of the team I would have taken this opportunity to get rid of the cherubs sucking on the chupacabra’s tits. (I’m sure there is a logical explanation for it). (There is, obviously: it’s the story of Romulus and Remu). Also: Trajan? Et tu, Rome?

Relevant links: Press release.

Select quote: “The updated logo is a vibrant new take on AS Roma’s memorable crest, which has represented the Club since its inception. … AS Roma has tremendous brand equity that far outpaces that of nearly every European sports club. The Club has carefully evolved the logo to respect the past but represent the future.”
