Sports have been a part of our lives since ancient times. Even if you don’t participate, you know someone who does, whether it’s your kids, your spouse or your colleagues who won’t stop talking about their intramural water polo team.
 
When you find yourself needing to create a logo for your team, product or school, do it right. Sports logos tend to be active and energetic, focusing on pictorial elements instead of typography.
 
We’ve rustled up 50 amazing sports logo ideas to inspire you.

Huddle up! Team logo design.

From rec league to semi-pro, every team needs a logo. It probably won’t make you play any better, but will raise team spirit (and make you look great)!
 
Traditionally, team logos are emblems. Better for displaying on jerseys, hats and such. Bold colors and active poses make your mascot appear tough and intimidating, even if the chosen animal isn’t.
 
Depending on the sport, consider including a ball, puck, bat or shuttlecock. Certain animals can even be anthropomorphized to wear helmet and pads.

Get the right sports gear logo

When you make sports gear, you know your customers are active. Your logo should reflect that, both in the typography and the imagery.
 
If you specialize in a particular sport or outdoor activity, it’s a great idea to make that clear. Whether they’re hikers, bikers or quidditch players, you want people to instantly recognize your product is for them. You don’t necessarily have to literally depict the sport your apparel is designed for, but you can evoke the feeling with appropriate iconography.

Adventure sports logos at the head of the class

So, you’ve decided you want to share your passion for sports by teaching or guiding others. Fantastic! In designing the logo for your program, you have to ask a key question: what do you want your students to do? Just have fun? Go on an adventure? Get tough? Do something really badass?
 
Consider the age and ability level of your students. For children, you might want something open and welcoming. For experienced adults, create a logo that expresses the challenge they’re about to face. But in almost any circumstance, energy and excitement are paramount.

Designing sporting event logos

To promote your sporting event, you’re going to need a logo. It’s a visual representation of the competition people are going to experience or spectate. Regardless of the sport, here, you’re being scored on style. 
 
Is the event just for fun? Go with a silly, lighthearted design. Is it meant only for dedicated weekend warriors? Use a bold design to reflect that. Do you want to focus on fans, and entice them to buy tickets? A strong logo lets them know your event is where they should spend their spectating money.

Appetite for sports app logo design

Sport isn’t just about athleticism. It’s also about socializing, improving yourself, and tracking lots and lots of stats. Naturally, there are a lot of apps out there, and every one of them needs a logo.
 
The logo should indicate what sport or activity the app is for. But you also need to think about the target audience. Are they using it to track their progress? Or follow their favorite team? Or maybe it’s just to help them find the best fishing spot. Whatever the goal is, keep that in the forefront of the logo design.
