TAMPA, Fla. – In November of 2019, Transatlantic Sports Group Inc. (TSG), an international soccer company dedicated to growing the sport on both sides of the Atlantic, and Rush Soccer, a global soccer brand with 40,000 youth players worldwide, announced a joint venture for a USL League Two team (formerly known as Daytona Soccer Club) in Daytona Beach, Florida. Today, TSG and Rush Soccer unveiled a new name and branding for the club ahead of the 2020 League Two season.
Daytona Rush Soccer Club now includes ‘Rush,’ a global soccer brand, who in partnership with TSG will funnel elite level competitive players and alumni to the League Two team and on to the professional ranks. The redesign of the logo reflects the team’s coastal home and founding companies.
“The big crashing wave shows the style of our soccer club and reflects our ocean facing community, said Transatlantic Sports Group, Inc. Board Chair and Marketing Committee Member at Daytona Rush Jen Johns. "The sun and sand are a bold Florida gold and the stars near the palm branch represent our connection to our European roots. The blue and gray mirror the official Rush blue and gray. Overall, our new logo represents our club’s pride in Daytona with iconic symbols all within a soccer badge.”
The staff of TSG, Rush Soccer and Daytona Rush are excited to bring a fast-paced and exciting brand of soccer to the area this summer.
“The new name and logo brings a fresh approach to the club and defines a bright beginning for what the staff, players and coaches plan to communicate on the field and within the community during the seasons ahead," said CEO of Transatlantic Sports Group, Inc., Evan Mitz.
The Daytona Rush USL League Two team will serve as a top-tier option for players in the club looking to compete professionally. All parties are looking forward to building a relationship with the local soccer community and bringing everyone along on the journey as Daytona Rush steps into USL League Two play this summer.
