Tomorrow we will look at fan made logos and the next day other teams that share the name wizards logos. Today we look at the history of the Kansas City Wizards Logo. My favorite is the one we currently have, though that doesn’t mean much as I don’t care for it either.

The majority of our history has been with the logo above. I’ve met many people who said they just couldn’t support a team with a rainbow on it.

One game in 2007
This logo was used in honor of Lamar Hunt in one game in 2007 against FC Dallas, one of the other teams owned by Lamar Hunt. The papers reported at the time that Lamar loved the original logo and so had Chad Reynolds, an in house graphic artist, make something similar to honor his name. The star above it represents the Wizards 2000 MLS CUP title.
