The FA has released its landmark logo to commemorate the 150 years of the English football organisation. The new logo is practically the same as the previous one used however it is the first time that is in gold, underlining the significance of the FA’s landmark year.
It also has a new 150-mark underneath the badge, marking the years since the orgnisation has been in existence (1863 – 2013).
FA Chairman David Bernstein said: “It is a great honour to be Chairman of The Football Association as we head into our 150th year.
“It is incredible to think how the game has developed from that very first meeting at the Freemasons’ Tavern in October 1863.
“Those founding fathers had real foresight to bring order and organisation to the game.
“Still, despite their sporting values and vision, no-one could have foreseen what football would come to mean for the nation.
“It truly is the national game and one in which we should all take tremendous pride.
“There can scarcely be a family in England that is not touched by football in some way and we at The FA take our responsibility to support the game very seriously.”
