Perhaps the World Cup mark is a ball that the player is kicking… a second ball. Maybe, that’s how FIFA is going to address Sepp Blatter’s concerns about scoring being down in the 2006 World Cup. Henceforth, World Cup matches will be played with two balls. …. no, no, that World Cup logo actually represents an Italian diving…. 0 marriott 28,545 posts Share this post 949 posts SportsLogos.Net Location:Milwaukee, WI 5,027 MJWalker45 46 Grand Pooba of Walksylvania 4,155 fonz The Swamp Yankee Share this post Posted July 8, 2006 22 Slickster The Nation Share on other sites Members Brian in Boston Share on other sites Link to post 0 0 Members Share on other sites 2,305 Brian in Boston 0 Members Link to post 377 posts Location:Ontario Banned Fred T.

Kinda surprised no one has posted on this yet from earlier this morning.Honestly I prefer Germany’s over S. Africa’s. But I guess this one fits in line with the other form fitting tournament logos FIFA has been doing lately. Like the ’07 Canada U-20 Championships.I guess this will have to do Share this post FreeKobe Share this post Link to post 2,305 Go To Topic Listing Posted July 9, 2006 0 2 Link to post 2 Bow before my superior smartitude! Posted July 9, 2006 Share on other sites 4,065 posts 0 Was there any logo explanation included?I love it when they say things like, “The blue represents Africa’s many abundant rivers. The green represents the fertility of the continent. The upsweeping lines represent the ascendancy of soccer and liberation from tyranny. The soccer ball obviously represents soccer.” 377 posts 2 Well… it could have been better. Then again, it could certainly have been much worse. You’ve got the continent in there, just in case someone was to become confused as to where exactly South Africa was located. There’s the stylized hint of the South African flag overlaying the continent and providing the trailing motion lines for the ball’s path. As President Mbeki explained, the player is rendered in such a way as to give a nod to the rock paintings that represent indigenous culture. About the only portion of the logo that doesn’t seem very well integrated is the World Cup mark that was introduced in 2002. It’s just sort of jammed into the logo’s upper right-hand corner. All in all, the very definition of an all-inclusive sports logo by committee. I personalyl prefer tihs logo to the German one. At least the connections to the place where it’s organized are clear. Behing the player you can see the shape of Africa with South African colours. I think it was a good idea. 40 I personally dont like this logo, they could have done something much better though i do give 2 thumbs up for it being unique. 0 Link to post 0 0 5,027 116 posts Not too keen on the font chosen, as it looks too much like a children’s cereal box.I DO like how they obliquely incorporated the South African flag into the design.Also, I agree the World Cup logo looks like it was added at the last minute and not really incorporated into the design itself. KJTALBOT Link to post 1,349 posts Posted July 9, 2006 FreeKobe heres the 2007 World Youth Championship Logo, and the 2007 Womens World Cup logoFifa should honestly be ashamed of themselves for the WWC logo, because that is an absolute travesty. And I still cant get over the fact that it must have taken them less than a week to create the next world cup’s logo Share on other sites 0 Recommended Posts They should have used the World Cup mark as the ball that the player is kicking. It would have fit in better. Curses! Beat me to it! That would have made it a lot better imo. However, I’m not too upset with the general design, as it kinda fits in with the old European designs, especially the 1934 World Cup held in Italy.

Jane Anybody know why it’s copyrighted 2005 instead of ’06?It looks more like a souvenir patch rather than a world cup logo, but maybe it’ll grow on me. Share on other sites Members 22 FreeKobe Posted July 9, 2006 I think the Germany 2006 one is better. The guy looks a little funky kicking that ball.

The green represents the fertility of the continent. The upsweeping lines represent the ascendancy of soccer and liberation from tyranny. The soccer ball obviously represents soccer.” Describing the logo that will characterise the South African tournament in four years time, (South African President) Mbeki said: “That figure is drawn from rock paintings in the country ? rich with depth in our history and longevity. It is very colourful, it shows movement and activity and I think it reflects very much the mood on the continent about what we need to do about ourselves”.
