Goodison park and Everton are known as the of oldest clubs in English football with a lot of tradition. In 2013, the club made a huge change that not all fans approved of.
Everton decided to redesign their traditional badge after years and this caused an up roar with the blue side of Merseyside. Over 16,000 Everton fans signed a petition to get rid of the new badge as they felt it was embarrassing and betrayed traditions of the club. The badge lost its two laurel wreaths and the clubs motto Nil Satis Nisi Optimum first designed in 1938.
“Its simplified nature means it can be reproduced more effectively in the digital and retail arenas”.
And it did not go down well with fans.
To make things worse Everton and Nike then released an eyesore for an away kit. This kit had a bright yellow and blue split, along with the new disputed badge.
Although the badge and kits were poor, the team itself performed very well in their first season under former manager Roberto Martinez.
The badge was then changed a year later to the delight of all the fans. Its safe to say this kit was not one for the history books.
