Phila SC is one of the oldest members of America League founded in 1888. Their name was originally Penn Rail and they were a company team for the Pennsylvania Railroad. They had mixed results on the field finishing middle of the table most seasons. The team changed their name sometime around 1900 to Philadelphia SC and then shortened again in the 70s to Phila SC. Throughout it all they've maintained a pretty conservative feel overall but with some modern touches to their identity. They had a redesign of their club badge in 2003 but kept the overall shape (from the city crest) original drawing of the ship (also from the city crest) and the colors (from the city flag). The "Brothers," as they are known, play in The City Stadium downtown.
They are one of the best teams in the United States, winning the league 7 times, winning the Open Cup 7 times, and winning the League Cup once. They’ve only been relegated for 1 season, 2007, in their entire existence.
Their uniforms are very conservative with a blue with a gold check stripe on the primaries and a solid yellow jersey on the change kits. However, there is a subtle diagonal pattern on both jerseys in the gold areas. Their sponsor is Comcast/Xfinity and they have 1 star above their badge representing their 7 championships in the Premier League.
