Updated Logo

 

It is with great pleasure that the Altona City Soccer Club committee reveals the updated logo for our club in season 2020.

After a few changes and tweaks on the new design, we are excited to share our official new logo. Our previous logo served the club well for approximately 20 years, and as a committee, we believed it was time for an update.

We have kept our colours, however the main changes that have been made to the logo includes paying respect to our past – to the original founders and committee members of our great club. The logo now incorporates all of the foundational nationalities including English, Scottish, Dutch and Maltese heritage.

As we all know our club is not dominated by just one culture, and the logo demonstrates the cultural diversity that exists in our club.

At the heart of the new logo, is the club’s 1965 foundation date. As we enter a new season and new decade, our new logo will help launch and celebrate the club’s 55th anniversary in 2020.

Exciting times ahead at our club with logo changes taking effect immediately across our digital and non-digital platforms. 

We are the people.
