BR-UK StaffAnalyst IIIMarch 10, 2014

New Major League Soccer franchise, New York City FC, is leaving it to its fanbase to decide the team's chosen crest. 

NYCFC, which is owned in part by Manchester City, opened up their crest design to pretty much anyone who wanted to put their best design foot forward.

Even manager Jason Kreis' son submitted an idea.

The two final designs were both done by Rafael Esquer and you can cast your vote here.  

"Our supporters will always have a voice in our Club at New York City FC," club chief business officer Tim Pernetti said, via Sports Illustrated. "We are truly excited about this opportunity to partner with them on this decision and we are counting on all New Yorkers and fans beyond the city to get involved, cast a vote and make New York City FC history."
