The votes are in and the Valley Huskers have been named the best football logo in the country following the Football Canada logo contest.
Football Canada ran the logo contest during our #SupportTheSport campaign to create something fun for football fans across the country to engage with during the pandemic. The contest saw incredible engagement over the entirety of the contest with over 30,000 votes and the campaign reached over 275,000 people.
Vanisha Mistry, Communications Coordinator of Football Canada, stated “The contest was a huge success and so much fun to run. We loved seeing everyone across the country show so much pride for their team/favourite logo.”
There were over 4000 votes in the final round and the Huskers collected 57% of the votes.
Huskers' head coach Bob Reist was the inspiration for our logo when he arrived in 2017. He wanted to rebrand the Huskers’ culture and was looking for something with an edge that embraced the Fraser Valley and the Husker name. He reached out to his former teammate and coaching colleague John Makie, a Vanier Cup champion, and he was able to create the edge Reist was looking for.
The Valley Huskers and CJFL want to thank everyone for all their support during this contest. The Huskers program rests solely on community support and the more involvement the stronger the program will be.
If you are interested in your own Valley Huskers logo wear, stay tuned for some exciting opportunities in the next few days. More information can be found at ValleyHuskers.ca.
Congratulations to the Valley Huskers!
