New Los Angeles soccer team reveals crest and celebrity owner

The new Los Angeles Football Club may not be taking the field until 2018, but they're already causing headlines. During a press conference on Thursday, the new soccer team—which is replacing Chivas USA—unveiled their crest, which we actually kinda dig, as well as a new part owner in the form of Will Ferrell. We guess starring in Kicking and Screaming must have inspired the actor to get in on the game.

"This is not a joke. I actually am a member of this fine ownership group," Ferrell said during the press conference, according to ESPN

We doubt he has that much stake in the team as there are quite a few owners, including Malaysian billionaire Vincent Tan, venture capitalist Henry Nguyen with Magic Johnson, as well as soccer star Mia Hamm, motivational speaker Tony Robbins, businessman Peter Guber and former baseball player Nomar Garciaparra. There's a full list of the current owners on their website. However, we do hope this means that we may catch a glimpse of the funny man and some of his celebrity friends at the games. 

And about that nifty new crest: The club colors will be black, gold and red. The art deco-esque crest, seen above, was designed by Tue Nguyen and Matthew Wolff.

According to the club's website, "The wing represents power, strength and speed and is universally recognized across cultures... With the wing in our crest, we seek to unite our team and our fans under a recognizable and relatable symbol, with ties to the diverse culture of Los Angeles." That's pretty deep stuff for a team part owned by the star of Old School
