Yesterday June 28 is a special day for me for two specific reasons. This is the birthday of my lovely mom who also happens to share the same birthday as my beloved football team, Club de Fútbol Monterrey, also known as Los Rayados( The stripes). I could spend the whole day talking about my mom but today I will be talking about the team that stole my heart since I was a kid.
Founded on June 28, 1945, near the end of WW2, Monterrey turned 75 years yesterday and the club just celebrated it big. They released a commemorative logo, released a limited edition jersey (only 1945 sold) released a documentary, and also brought back one of the most iconic logos of all time.
On August 19 1945 Rayados de Monterrey would debut in the Mexican professional football league and reveal their first emblem that contained the Cerro de la Silla (saddle hill) with a big football and the word Monterrey written in a script. One could argue that it lacks visual composition but I really love the design of this crest… of course, I’m being biased. After the release of this logo, Monterrey would see their logo minimalize their aesthetic throughout the years.
The new 75th-anniversary introductory logo is just used for media and it’s basically a ribbon forming the number 75. The jersey has a retro touch to it and let me tell you, it got sold out in one minute. It’s been 75 years of emotional history; we have seen our club suffer losses, the tragedy of 1945 where the players lost their lives when the bus they traveled in caught fire. It took Monterey 40 years to win their first championship; although we don’t have the number of years as other popular clubs in Mexico, we have iconic memories. They are 75 years of few glories but those that they have given us are for eternity. Viva el Club de Futbol Monterrey!
