Making a splash is important in this day and age and our USL affiliate in Charlotte certainly did that today with the release of their logo and home uniform.  Check this out:

For Colorado Rapids fans this is a big step in the growth of the Rapids family as the Independence continue to ride on towards their home opener on March 27.  I am a very big fan of this logo and I love how they incorporated the "1775" into the logo as that represents why Charlotte are called the Independence: 1775 was the first time that citizens in what would become the USA would call for independence from England.

The Independence also released their home uniform today:

I must admit to having an addiction to purchasing football jerseys and this will absolutely be my next one.  A classic and great look for the franchise as they enter into their inaugural season.

What do you think Rapids fans?  Do you like the look?  Are you excited for the Independence season to kick off next month?
