There is one thing every sports team, no matter what sport, has in common with each other – the logo they play under. Logos are one of the most important parts of a team, because it is their identity, their brand, and a good logo can make for cool sportswear and jersey designs. Some players treat their logo with so much respect, that when the logo is on the floor in their locker room, they won’t even step on it. And when other people do step on it, the team makes sure they get off it quickly.
It’s also the marker that identifies the fans of that team. Walk down the street and see logos on hats and coats and right away identify who that person cheers for. It’s the crest, the shield that brings all sports fan together. So as a true sports fan, it shouldn’t be hard to pick the correct team these logos go with. Some are the secondary logos that teams use, either on their shoulders, or an alternate logo on a third jersey, while others are the main logo that has changed over the years. There is something about a classic logo and when a team gets it right, they don’t touch it. But there is always room for a little improvement and modernization as the team gets older.
1Who is this team?
This logo belongs to a team that has an incredibly loud fan base that makes it hard to play them at home. It helped them win their one and only Super Bowl when they did so in 2013 and it helped get them back to the game the following season, although they missed out on repeating.

This team also holds the NBA record for the best record in a regular season when they went 73-9 in 2016-17, while also going 16-1 during the playoffs.
4Who is this hockey team?
There are plenty of fans that would love to see this logo come back to the NHL, as the team is no longer in the league, having relocated in 1995. It’s too bad as well, as they would on to win the Stanley Cup the following season, and once again a few years after, as they were in the midst of seeing a bunch of trades finally work out. But not the fan base just hopes some team in the NHL wants to relocate, as it doesn’t seem like the NHL head office is going to give them a new expansion team any time soon.
5Who is this football team?
This logo is one of the more interesting ones in the NFL and is pretty obvious if you know your football. This franchise started with this logo back in 1976, but have since traded it in for a more modern twist, although they do bring it back for special games, along with the funky uniforms that go with it. Goodbye creamsicle, hello modern black and red. It worked, however, as they would go on to win the Super Bowl in 2002, their first and only as a franchise.
6Who is this team?
This team was an expansion team in 1968 and their team name is perfect for the state they play in due to the weather they get. This franchise has the fourth best all-time winning percentage in league history, as they have won 55 percent of their games up to the 2014 season.

That team would go on to win the Stanley Cup that season and become a dominant team. But this team, which lasted from 1976 to 1982, never won a Stanley Cup, and only qualified for the playoffs once.

10Who is this team?
This team’s logo has changed plenty since the early days of this northern franchise, which had them wearing purple and white.

Famous players from this franchise include Vince Carter, Chris Bosh an DeMar DeRozan.

13Who is this baseball team?
This logo belongs to one of the newest teams in Major League Baseball, and by new I mean 1998. It didn’t take them long to win a World Series, however, as they defeated the New York Yankees in 2001, just fours years after joining the league, becoming the fastest expansion team in the Major Leagues to win a championship since their inception. Not much has changed about their logo over the years, but with a new franchise compared to others, there isn’t much reason to change.
14Who was this hockey team?
This logo belongs to a team in the NHL that is no longer in existence. This team was an expansion team in 1999 in the NHLs bid to increase their teams in certain locations. The team was historically bad, however, as they only ever qualified once for the playoffs, doing so in 2006-07, after winning their division, but were swept in the first round.

That would be the same year they would also win the Super Bowl, which put the AFL against the NFL in what was just the third game ever played under the Super Bowl name.

18Who was this NHL team?
This NHL team played with this logo from 1979 to 1997 before the team was moved to Carolina to become the Hurricanes.

19Who is this football team?

20Who is this basketball team?
This team uses this logo as a third jersey type option and would most likely be found on shoulder straps or on a ESPN SportCenter game recap.

But the team folded and when the CFL moved began to accept America teams, the Baltimore Stallions would become a franchise and even win a Grey Cup in 1995.

28Who is this football team?
This logo really has very little to do with the actual team name, who they represent, the city they come from, or what they refer to their fanbase as. It’s the logo they used between 1959 and 1969, and it’s actually a more updated version of their first logo, which they started using in 1948. It’s a far stretch change from the logo they use today, which is a pretty basic football helmet, and it definitely brings a lot more questions as why they used it, when it has nothing to do with the team name.
29Who is this basketball team?
This team was founded in 1995, but they were founded a long way away from where they are located today, playing under this logo.

30Who is this baseball team?

35Name this team?
This logo was is used by an NHL franchise that still plays today as an alternative logo. It's a pretty simple logo with a little mascot on top wearing a tuque, which pretty much represents this teams nickname if you are aware of who they are and where they are from. Their team name is actually a nickname for people from that country, so it would seem only fitting that they would have a tuque on their head, considering the North is known for having to wear them.
36Who were they?
This was part of this team’s logo when they were still a franchise in the NBA. This logo was used back in 1976 to 1996 and featured a basketball with the home team’s cityscape combined.

The team would change logos twice more until they moved in 2008, relocating the franchise to Oklahoma City.
37Who was this team?
This logo is another not defunct team in the National Hockey League, as the team relocated. It’s the first of two times this city would lose an NHL franchise, but at least a bit of this team would remain, as the logo and team name stayed the same, only that the A would become a C due to the new location. It would be too easy to give new city name, but this franchise would go on to win one Stanley Cup in 1989.
38Who is this college program?
This logo may be one of the coolest logos in all of sports, as it uses the letters of the university it represents to make the mascot that the team name is based around.

39Who was this team?
Red, white and blue returns to this logo, but you would be wrong if you thought it represented a team from the United States. This logo belonged to a now defunct baseball team that played in the Major Leagues. The logo is supposed to be three letters put together, one for the name of the city, one for the name of the team and a B for baseball, but it’s pretty hard to tell what it was supposed to say without looking at it long and hard. This team relocated to Washington in 2004.
40Who was this team?
This hockey team didn’t have a long history in the NHL, as they lasted only two years, as they were founded in 1974 and relocated to Colorado in 1976. They are actually the starting location for today’s New Jersey Devils, although there was nothing demonic about their name or their logo. This city doesn’t have an NHL franchise anymore, although they have tried to land one, and in two seasons the team won 15 and 12 games in, losing 54 and 56.
41Who is this football team?
This team has only had this logo since they were given a franchise for the third time in 2010. They were known as the Rough Riders and Renegades before that. They play in the CFL and despite being a new franchise, they have already won a Grey Cup, winning in 2016. Their championship win ended a 40-year Grey Cup drought for the city they play in. It should be easy to come up with the team name, since their logo colors tell the entire story.
42Who was this football team?
When the CFL tried to go south of the border into the United States, this team used this logo for the one season they played in the CFL back in 1994. It was a failed experiment, as the game never caught on in the United States, as fans didn’t like the different rules and they loved the NFL. They finished the season 5-13, in last place in the West Division and next to last in the CFL standings. Which team is this?
43Who is this hockey team?
This logo was an alternative logo for an NHL franchise who was made fun of for what people call the least interesting logo in sports. It was more for a box of fish than an NHL team and the colors were so weird together. This logo was used from 1995 to 1998 for a franchise that has been around the NHL since 1972 and was a four time, back-to-back winner of the Stanley Cup, winning from 1979 to 1983, making them a true dynasty team.
44Who is this soccer team?

It’s pretty simple logo and the colors are used pretty regularly in the area for sports teams. The team won the MLS Cup in 2015, their first major trophy, and finished the 2017 season in first place again.

Their logo hasn’t changed in that time and they remain one of the top franchise in the NLL to this day.
46Who is this college program?
This logo has been used by this college football team since 1977, and hasn’t changed much over the years.
