Also was used to determine which sport/group of the club you were a part of, splitting it up between basketball club, chess club, curling club, etc. as many of the bigger groups were made up of numerous different sport clubs/groups for the locals to join.Oh great. Here comes another FC and white away kits.
Do these FC loving idiots not realize that the reason "Location FC" names have cachet is they have history, going back to when people literally formed local clubs to play the sport? Same for Inter, Real, Athletic, United or whatever. There is a real, historic reason for those names and that is why they resonate with people. I hate that MLS and so many of its fans think the way to create our own history is to adopt foreign names and conventions that have no local resonance or connection to place.
In a hypothetical stance we would basically be Yankees SC, and the NY Yankees would be Yankees BC (Baseball Club).
