SO. CAL. SEAHORSES REVEAL NEW LOGO

SO. CAL. SEAHORSES REVEAL NEW LOGO

The So. Cal. Seahorses,, a division of Missionary Athletes International (MAI), revealed a new logo today which reflects the identity that it shares with the parent organization and sibling offices Charlotte Eagles (Est. 1991), and Chicago Eagles (1997).

We had to be willing to give up on the attachment that we had with our old logos to reflect the new, unified identity.  You can see immediately the overall relationship while recognizing the individual characteristics of each of the identities.
— Patrick Stewart, CEO of MAI

The new logos are part of a rebranding process that extends across the entire organization. “The rebranding is the culmination of six years of a strategic planning process which MAI began in 2011” said CEO Patrick Stewart.  “We wanted to reflect the greater cohesiveness between MAI and its divisions through a new visual identity.  People may know the Charlotte Eagles, Chicago Eagles or Southern California Seahorses without realizing that they are related to each other and are part of a larger organization”. 

MAI was founded in 1983 with a mission of using the global environment of soccer to communicate the message of Jesus Christ. MAI began operating the Southern California Seahorses in the same year, expanding to the East Coast as the Charlotte Eagles Soccer Club in 1991 and to the Midwest in 1997 as the Chicago Eagles. In the past 35 years, tens of thousands of children have participated in MAI camps operated by the Charlotte Eagles, Chicago Eagles and Southern California Seahorses. In addition, over 200 international tours have ministered successfully in countries on six continents.  

MAI engaged AkinsParker to design the logos in conjunction with an internal creative team representing each of the divisions.  AkinsParker has included key design elements that are reflective of MAI’s history and purpose in a creative way that communicates both unity and individual distinctives. The rebranding process will be implemented over the course of the year with teams expected to begin competing under the new design this summer. 


We are thrilled to have been given the opportunity to design the MAI family of brands. Our goal (and challenge) was to weave the rich history of the MAI organization with a new, fresh and modern athletics look and feel. Our team had fun developing these logos and hope they serve the brand well!
— AKINS PARKER

Seahorses are thrilled to congratulate former Seahorse PDL goalie, Eric Reed, on his new position at Malone University as Men’s Soccer Head Coach! Eric was a great contributor to the Seahorse team and community, and we look forward to cheering him on from afar. Congratulations Eric!

"I would like to thank Charlie Grimes and Malone University for giving me the opportunity to serve the men's soccer program," commented Reed.  "I am humbled and honored to join the Pioneer Family and to be a part of the incredible journey ahead of us.  God has set a special place in my heart for the marriage of faith and competition on the field.  We have been called to offer our bodies as living sacrifices to the Lord (Romans 12:1), and my hope for this program is that we would display a passion for Christ in everything we do- from every word we speak to every tackle we win.  I believe that Malone is a special place packed with potential for the future and I am hungry to jump right in and get to work in the spirit of "Christ's Kingdom First."
