Although only a league side for two seasons (1990/91 & 1991/92) and never a 'senior' club, Utopians FC has now been in existence for over 12 years, continuing to play in a number of mouth-watering friendly fixtures. Selection for the team is by invitation only.
The club crest, created in 2002 to mark the 10th anniversary of the last league fixture played, has a very modern feel to it.
Three items can be found within the triangular frame of the crest:
(i) The year 1990 is the club's formation year.
(ii) A football signifies the sport played by Utopians FC. It is coloured light and dark blue to represent Oxford Brookes University where most of the club's players once studied. The University's 'Wheatley Campus' ground continues to be the venue for home fixtures.
(iii) A light blue 'zig-zag' line represents the river that links Oxford and London (the River Isis / Thames). London is significant in that the club took its name from the now defunct South East London football fanzine, 'Football Utopia'.
The club name is visible just below the triangular frame of the crest, coloured orange - the club's main colour.
A modern 'triangle' (the frame) makes up the remainder of the crest. This signifies the move into the 21st century and is curved at the bottom representing the design of the Millennium Dome - a building constructed to celebrate the coming of the third millennium. It is coloured green and yellow as these colours were used as alternatives to the orange and blue normally worn for home fixtures.
Thanks to Chris Munns, Secretary at Utopians FC, for the above crest and information.
