Oh, I know that, but it still doesn't look right to me. Just my opinion. Since the '60s the soccer ball that's been traditionally used is the 32 panel one: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soccer_ball#Construction I mean, you could have used the one from the 2006 WC that looks like it was put together with maxi-pads and it would have been a soccer ball in the crest. It doesn't mean it's a good design or pleasing on the eye. But, like I said, it's just my opinion. Also, you ask your average Joe in the US what kind of ball that pattern belongs to and I guarantee you that the majority will say volleyball. That may not be the best in terms of marketing, then again, you're also using Football Club as part of the name, too.
