COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- The Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC unveiled their first logo this evening limiting out on available space at the Ivywild School Gymnasium with 250 fans. The evening was filled with the Switchbacks new song "Switchback Attack”, hype video, motion graphics, song, and chants from the COS Colonials.
The Switchbacks crest has its roots in the Colorado Springs Flag emblem with the hexagon shape and sunburst behind the soccer ball. The entire movement of the mark represents the switchbacks movement which is defined by the club as a sudden change of direction. The hexagon border stops short of making final terminations in order to allow the shape of an “S”. Mountain peaks are subtly referenced on the top and bottom of the mark. The five vertical red lines represent the five Colorado Springs military bases. The cross fluery represents the term “believe” to the club.
The USL PRO expansion side, which is set to begin play in 2015, has already named former Colorado Rapids player and assistant coach Steve Trittschuh as the club's head coach.
