25 Of The Best Club Badges In Asian Football

By Chris Wright

We’ve already covered South American and African football‘s finest insignia over the past couple of weeks, so it’s bloody well high time that we turn our sights on Asian football’s mostest fantabulous-est club badges.

Here goes…

1. TOT Sport Club, Thailand

TOT are owned by the Thai national telecommunications company and their actual, honest-to-goodness club nickname is “Hello”…

2. Gomback United, Singapore


3. Bangkok Glass Rabbits, Thailand

There are people out there who would probably pay good money for a Bangkok Glass Rabbit…

4. Samut Songkhram FC, Thailand

What could be more terrifying than a mackerel? How about a RAGING MACKEREL?

5. Quingdao Liming, China

Featuring Hello Kitty’s older, camper brother…

6. Shaanxi Guoli, China

Sadly now defunct, Shaanxi live on through their rubbish badge…

7. Shatin Sports Association, Hong Kong

Isn’t this the international sign for “please proceed to the lifeboats in an orderly fashion via the emergency exits”…

8. Hunan Xiangjun, China

Yes, truly “shoking”…

9. FC Suzuka Rampole, Japan

No-one knows quite what to expect, when the Rampoles are in full effect…

10. Aceh United, Indonesia

Clip Art to the rescue…

11. Nagoya Grampus Eight (old logo), Japan

Incredibly well orca-strated…


12. Dolphins United, Phillipines

Any resemblance to other club logos you may notice is purely coincidental…

13. FC Ryukyu, Japan

Now that’s just plain cool…

14. Thanh Hoa FC, Vietnam

How very elaborate…

15. Persebaya FC, Indonesia

Ah yes, the eternal battle twixt shark and alligator…

16. Kamatamare Sanuki, Japan

Correct, that’s a bowl of noodles with a football in it…

17. Chunceon FC (old logo), South Korea

Hands up, we’ve got no idea what’s going on here…

18. Persiter Ternate, Indonesia

C’mon boys, you’re not even trying. That’s supposed to be a stingray by the way..

19. Taejon Citizens, South Korea

Big thumbs up…

20. Hello United, Cambodia

Again, sadly defunct (the club became Phnom Penh Crown FC in 2009)…

21. Yongin Citizens FC, South Korea

Glorious. Like the front cover of a Talk Talk album…

22. FC Mito Holly Hock, Japan

Naff name, but that’s a mighty purdy club crest…

23. Montedio Yamagata, Japan

Again, just a straight-up good-lookin’ logo…

24. West Asian Football Federation

Just a bit waff innit?

25. Sunken Garden United, Phillipines

Pathetic, in the truest sense of the word…

  1. Terry Shedingham says:

    That Mito Holly Hock one is clearly based on a Japanese family crest. And that Dolphins United one reminds me of the old Forest Green Rovers crest. But this has made me laugh more than anything has on Pies for a long time, cheers!

  2. Eckpfosten says:

    FC Ryukyu’s crest even made me visit their website…to find out, that my Japanese is not in the best shape.

  3. MaxMad says:

    @Teddy: “Its nickname “HollyHock” derives from the family crest of the Tokugawa clan who governed from Mito in the Edo period.”

  4. Dan says:

    Why is someone trying to shoot the nuts off the guy on the Shatin Sports Association badge?

  5. yolo says:

    i dont get it…are you giving us the best or the worst badges? it says the best but they are clearly bad for the most part

  6. shake bin ma mood says:

    @yolo – i was just wondering the same thing

  7. slim.charles says:

    #19 – It’s Daejon Citizen, not Taejon. Also, they no longer use that badge.

  8. Pjmuzi says:

    It is absolutely criminal you didn’t include Khonkaen FC, from Thailand:

    The club motto is “Beware the T-Rex”!

  10. agus says:

    about persebaya’s logo, the shark and alligator logo is originated from surabaya city’s crest, which is inspired by the ancient legend of ‘sura’ and ‘baya’, a shark and an alligator (or crocodile?) whose epic battle believed to form the city’s landscape

    well i used to laugh too when i dont know what something means
