Mazatlán, after many contradictions from the public, unveiled their crest on Monday, June 8th, 2020, and let me tell you it looks great.
Monarcas Morelia officially announced the unwanted news for many Morelianos, which was the change of city for the club. A rebranding that took place, June 2nd, 2020. With that being said, Mazatlán F. C. was unveiled.
Almost a week later, the club wrote the following statement on their Twitter page:
"Whoever wants to stay on the ship, welcome aboard, whoever does not, please jump overboard."
A strong statement regarding those who would not support the club, given the circumstances that the club is currently facing after the club unveiled their crest. This crest will represent them throughout the 2020-21 Liga MX Season.
A beautiful crest, that was thought of based on remarkable places of the City of Mazatlán based in the State of Sinaloa. The club’s crest contains the circle around; within the ring, you see two canons, pointing towards a lighthouse that is part of an anchor. The colors consist of purple, black, and light blue.
The club described the circle of the crest as “Strength and energy.” Representing the first rays of the sun at dawn is an unforgettable picture of the pride of the city. The city’s coat of arms inspires the anchor. “It keeps us on solid ground anchored to the roots of Mazatlán,” expressed the club. The canons are eternal representatives of the fight for territory. “Symbol of national defense in 1864. In every battle, we defend the name and pride of Mazatlán.” “On the highest part of Mazatlán, the home of the lighthouse that guards and guides our sailors. We are the light that illuminates the Pacific.” Lastly, the colors that represent the sunset sky in Mazatlán. “The purple hour that tells us that the night is about to begin, filling the city with life, party, and soccer.”
For a team that is now a part of Mexico’s top-flight, they have a beautiful crest—using money, relocation, and the disbandment of a popular organization in Mexico. Monarcas Morelia ended with the birth of Mazatlán. A new boy is in town, and with that, a new rivalry may rise with Dorados de Sinaloa is located north with just a three-hour drive away.
It is unknown who will be part of the squad, but whoever joins will be part of history in the making. Monarcas Morelia will never be forgotten, a difficult task that Mazatlán has to overcome quickly.
