Roughnecks Alternate Logo
The Houston Roughnecks, an XFL team based in the city of Houston, Texas, have had a long and varied history with their alternate logo. The original design featured two crossed footballs on either side of the word “Roughnecks” written in white lettering. This logo was used from 2001 to 2003 before being replaced by a more modern look featuring an updated font and color scheme.
In 2019 when the league re-launched as part of Vince McMahon's rebooted version of XFL football, they decided to bring back some aspects from their past while also introducing new elements that better reflected what they wanted out of this iteration. As such, they chose to keep many elements from their old logos but update them for modern times; including changing up colors and fonts so that they felt fresh but still recognizable as being associated with the Roughnecks brand name.
This new look has been well received by fans both old and new alike who appreciate seeing something familiar yet different at the same time - providing just enough nostalgia without feeling dated or stale like some other sports teams' logos can be after years upon years without much change or evolution over time. With its bright colors combined with bold typeface choices, the current Houston Roughneck's alternate logo is sure to stand out amongst others in any crowd!
