I'm surprised that Boston or Philly did not go for a more USA-red-white-&-blue-theme considering 2026 will be the USA's 250th anniversary and the tournament looks like it will end up sometime around July 4, 2026 will be on a Saturday no less!!   SportsLighting, input??

Actually, less is more.  And the design will look OK on T-shirts!!  I mean, just compare it to the other 2026 event -- Milano-Cortina 26 which is even more hackish and amateurish than this one.  

This one looks like a gastropod  emerging from its shell . . .

But, that was not selected by FIFA.

At least the 2023 Basketball World Cup in the Philippines, Japan & Indonesia had a much better, yet understandable trophy-and-numeral logo, with both the '23' (or likely sometimes the 'B'-letter) and the Naismith Trophy are being depicted in the form of a heart - it signifies the three Asian nations' love and passion for basketball, and to me, it symbolizes the value of 'Puso', a Filipino meaning for 'heart'.

To top it all, you got the national colours of all the three hosting countries.

It's a cute logo but the graphic doesn't convey "basketball" either.  The heart/puso idea is kinda hackneyed.  As a matter of fact, the "3" looks more like a "puet" (a person's butt).  :lol:  But it's not versatile enough to have 16 different variants.

The digital version of the host city emblems, with the dynamic infill, are great (but the static versions in just one plain colour are disappointing).

The host city emblems are ok. I like the Los Angeles and Montrrey emblems.

FIFA also launched the theme song, which can be heard throughout the host city brand reveals and will likely be used for the TV intro in 2026.

imo its quite nice, i genuinely like it a lot!

and as a sidenote i'm starting to warm up to the emblem... it's quite bad but it's ours so might as well embrace it at this point

Probably not.  She's not of the North American continent, and the United '26 Org Committee is making very deliberate decisions to pick from the 3 countries.  

So, will FIFA pick the 2030 host this year??

She not of the African continent either as far as i know but that didn't stop FIFA making her the face of the tournament in 2010 with Waka Waka of J'lo in 2014.

Well, who did they have -- globally -- to headline their show?  1994 picked Diana Ross for that opening. 

What I'm saying is that I think the United 2026 Org Comm is more PICKY this time because (1) they want to be; and (2) there are certainly a ton of global names from Canada and the US: Celine Dion, the usual suspects: Beyonce, Rihanna, Jannae, Zendaya, etc., etc. -- all those bastard performers with no surnames.  :lol:

Main 2026 logo looks generic and dull to me. But I understand why that gets used because it's, as mentioned just earlier, easier to unite the three co-hosting nations, each with its own distinct national characteristics despite some commonalities, under a bland moniker that can redesigned to suit individual host cities in multiple colors within the 26 numbermark design. But even some of those can be more creative.

Agreed with the theme music launched for 2026. Like it a lot too. Looking forward to the TV intro using this instrumental
