Perth Glory S.C.
Perth Glory SC plays at the highest level of the game in Australia - the National Soccer League.
When it was formed - in 1996 - the club felt it important to create an image (crest) and name with no ethnic overtones and which symbolised the rebirth of soccer (football) in Western Australia. Perth Glory was positioned as a contemporary Australian club focused on a future of a multicultural Australia for all Australians. A conscious decision was made to break away from the strong heritage in soccer from the Northern Hemisphere (e.g. names such as 'United' and 'City', and traditional strip / kit designs).
It was felt the name 'Perth Glory' had broad appeal and a sense of history. The sunburst in the crest (logo) is characteristic of Perth in summer while the orange and purple colours were chosen in contrast to the more traditional combinations.
Thanks to Eamonn McDonnell, Web & Merchandising Manager at Perth Glory SC, for the above crest and information.
