    Serrano will lead a squad that will include striker Kléber Giacomazzi de Souza Freitas, better known as Kléber, midfielder Marcelo Saragosa and left-back Edson Braafheid.

    Kléber, nicknamed "Gladiador" (Gladiator) for his courage and determination, arrives from his native Brazil where he recently played with Coritiba FC. Kléber has scored 194 goals in his professional career, which includes playing time with Dynamo Kyiv of the Ukrainian Premier League and Palmeiras and Grêmio of the Brazilian Championship A Series. In parts of four seasons with Coritiba, Kléber appeared in 91 matches and netted 41 goals, including 23 in the 2016 season.

    Marcelo Saragosa is a nine-year veteran of Major League Soccer, including winning an MLS Cup and the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup with the LA Galaxy. He most recently played with the Tampa Bay Rowdies, serving as the captain for the 2015 campaign. Saragosa started his career at the age of 12 with Portuegessa, then joined the acclaimed São Paulo FC youth academy the following year, working his way onto the senior team at 20 years of age.

    Edson Braafheid joins Austin Bold FC after last playing for FC Utrecht of the Eredivisie, the premier division in the Netherlands. The Dutch national was selected to the Netherlands’ 2008 Summer Olympics squad and played in the 2010 World Cup final in South Africa. Braafheid’s professional career includes time with Bayern Munich in the German Bundesliga and Lazio in the Italian Serie A.

    Yeah! This would be great on a black jersey. But they're most likely going with the circular border around the "B".

    Losing options were the Italics and the Sans Serif. I voted for Austin Sans Serif Football United Club. A.S.S.F.U.C.
     
    C-Rob and TheJoeGreene repped this.

    I love the crest. Not sure about the name. Never heard "Bold" for any sports team. Kind of growing on me, though. We'll see.

    I'm not a big fan of the name, but am okay with everything else. Curious to see who on this thread who lives in Central Texas is thinking about getting season tickets? I know I and a number of friends are. Personally, I don't see this as an MLS2ATX v Austin Bold FC issue, although a lot of folks on the interweb are trying to make it that.

    I think those folk are of the opinion that ATX cannot support both.

    Austin FC has just been unveiled for MLS. Assuming that goes through, can your city deal with two teams at those respective levels?

    They really named it Austin Bold? It is Texas, I guess. It makes sense they would name their team after steak sauce.
