This is a list of my top five favorite defunct Champions Indoor Football (CIF) logos. What makes a logo qualify? The team can’t be in the league and they had to fold with the CIF being their last league. This is all just my opinion and is mostly aesthetically based. Please leave your favorites in the comments!
My number five favorite logo from a CIF team of the past belongs to Centex Cavalry. I like how the horse is white as it contrasts the burnt red mane. The sword is a small touch that was definitely needed as the cavalry is a group of soldiers who fought on horseback a were known for using swords. The burnt red and white star is a nice touch as Texas is the Lone Star State. One thing that I’m not 100% sold on is the gold lettering. Overall I enjoy this logo and miss it. Yet this isn’t even the best logo that left the CIF after 2017.
In the number four spot I have the Salina Bombers logo. This team and logo only lasted in the CIF for the 2015 campaign. However, despite its short tenure you can’t deny how slick it is. The silver football surrounded by the black shield is always a great color combination. The silver wings surrounding the shield gives off Oakland Raiders and San Antonio Spurs vibe. With the light green lettering this logo looks like a car ornament from years gone by and the fancy look for a rough sport is a great contrast.
At number three slot we have the Kansas City Phantoms logo that lasted from 2017 through 2018. The light blue plane is an interesting choice. The dark blue around it’s jetting through the air and the greenish tan “V” makes it look like the jet is breaking the sound barrier.
The number two spot goes to the Texas Revolution logo that was used in the league from 2015-2019. This logo screams Texas. It has the red white and blue color scheme that yells “THIS IS TEXAS!” Add star in the background to remind you that you are in the Lone Star State and you have an amazing logo.
In my opinion the best logo of a defunct CIF team is that of the Dodge City Law. They grey and black scream intensity. Yellow outlines make the back stand out as the sheriff badge looms in the background. This is so clean, I can’t even describe how amazing this is. To bad the logo isn’t in use anymore as it lasted from the team’s inception in 2014 (they joined the CIF in 2015) until they folded after 2017.
