The L.A. Women’s Professional Soccer team will be called the Sol (the lasses of LAS!).
Check out the logo and team colors (guess we should have figured a team owned in part by the owner of the W-League Pali Blues would stick with a primarily blue – dark and light – color scheme with accents of yellow and black).
The Sol name is meant to reflect the sunny weather and heritage – “sol” is sun in Spanish and other languages – of Southern California.
Season tickets for the inaugural season that begins in April will cost $125 to $750.
Full disclosure: The official unveiling of the name, logo and colors is set for Sunday; because another reporter was leaked and published the information this afternoon, I decided to break the embargo and publish it, too.
