Personally I like the logo very much. The only thing that bugs me, as with previous logos, is the FIFA cup at the bottom.

I wonder why, but the FIFA has decided that the logo of 2002 will be the official FIFA-World Cup sign for all future World Cups and has to appear on the logos.

I guess its the same strategy as the IOC's. But the difference is that the design of the Rings is so basic it ties in with just about any kind of logo without compromising the design.

I dont think this is the case at all with FIFA's, its too 'sophisticated':

I like the logo of Korea Japan, but I hate the logo of Germany 2006. I've seen other logos better than the official of Germany. I think it doesn't represented the country or the football. OK, maybe Korea Japan was great but doesn't represente the country... but it was original: it represented the Cup. But, I can't believe 2006, 2010 and 2014 will be same logos, only changing colors...

I like the Germany 2006 logo! It fits to the theme of the world cup: a time to make friends....thats the message of the "celebrating faces"

i alittle double minded if i like the logo, but the story behind the logo was that fifa called upon a major competition between 11 top international design companies and individuals. i seen all of those designs submited and some are fantastic, but fifa wanted, as mentioned before to have a continuous symbol, which was like the olympic rings and the 2002 design was thought to be best suited. so it ended up that the fifa inhouse design team designed the final logo!!  :suspect:

No, I don't like the logo. It doesn't scream Germany to me, nor does it scream Football. No amount of persuasion will change my mind about Germany's logo. Sorry. The only thing I like about it is the font and layout of the wording "Germany 2006", which is very neat. Stick a good logo on top of that and I'd be happier.

Having said all that, I'm looking forward to WC2006 and I think the Germans will put on a great show. England v Germany final anyone? :laughlong:

For some reason I ve got the feeling that England will make it in 2006... even if i hate DB..... but I liked Frank Lampard and the magical ballet-goal of Michael Owen :love: Hope to see them again in Germany!!! By the way: why didn´t Wayne Bridge from Chelsea get a try???  :(

Wouldn´t mind to see an England vs Germany final in Berlin on 9 July 2006 - but this time with a Wembley goal on OUR side  :P

The new stadium in Munich seems very unusual to me. On the exterior, it doesn't look like a football stadium at all.

I like the Olympic Stadium a whole lot more.

I hate the last one... Argentina vs Russia like a logo??? Nooo... that isn't universal... It's a World Cup, a logo must represent all the people... Is like a logo with a nazi symbol, a jewish star, etc.

The first one is beautiful, but it isn't represente Germany. I remember the poster of Spain 1982.

The second... mmm... it's good...
