UAAP 2011 Preseason Jerseyvaluation: UP Fighting Maroons

In a previous post I gave the UE Red Warriors grief for putting a big-ass sponsor logo on their preseason uniforms. Well, the UP Fighting Maroons did the same thing, but I don't think their jerseys were an eyesore.

Why? Because they made a choice between highlighting their school name and/or team moniker on one hand, and the mark or logo of their sponsor, on the other.

The Fighting Maroons went with their sponsor, and used the university's seal to identify themselves as representing UP. In contrast, other teams tried to have their cakes and eat them too. The UST Growling Tigers used their school name and a sponsor's mark; the Red Warriors used their school name, team moniker, and a sponsor's logo.

And just like the NU Bulldogs, in the preseason the Fighting Maroons mixed and matched their uniform sets. Their jerseys were also NNOB like the Bulldogs, the Growling Tigers, and the FEU Tamaraws.

  1. The UAAP season 75 will be exciting; I can't wait to see who will be going to the top. If it's still Ateneo will be leading or there someone going to throughout the crown for them. Thanks for sharing.
