According to a team release, the crest sits within a shield and is meant to signify strength for both the city and the team to “proudly stand behind.” The team’s mark, a wave, sits within the center of the logo. The colors are vibrant, including pinks and oranges, to celebrate “the beauty, fun, and vibrant culture of the city and its people.”
“We are thrilled to unveil our colors and crest that have been inspired by San Diego’s beauty, it’s culture and the sheer power of the Pacific Ocean,” said Club President Jill Ellis in a release. “We are confident that our players and fans near and far will enjoy wearing our crest and colors while proudly representing and supporting San Diego Wave Fútbol Club.”
The club’s jerseys are set to be released at a later date.
Additionally, the team announced that beginning in September 2022, Wave FC will call Snapdragon Stadium its permanent home. The stadium is set to be completed in September.
As a result, for the beginning of the NWSL season, the team will play at Torero Stadium at the University of San Diego.
“Snapdragon Stadium provides elite facilities for our players and premium amenities for our fans,” said Wave Ellis said. “From day one, we set out to deliver an unrivaled gameday experience for fans that matches the energy and quality of soccer on the field.”
The club is set to begin its inaugural season in 2022. Wave FC has been making moves ahead of the expansion draft, including trading for USWNT star Alex Morgan.
According to sources, the team is also expected to pick Jaelin Howell out of Florida State with the No. 1 pick in the college draft.
