Orange County,” Owner James Keston said. “Where most teams in Orange County in the past have shied away from having the OC be a part of their logo, we really wanted to embrace it and make it a focal point. We wanted to give fans something that readily identifies the club as Orange County’s team.”

The logo was designed by branding company Art Machine. The club hosted a series of events with fans to give their input on design options.

The club plays in the USL.
