Melbourne City details leaked online

-

It was always thought that after City bought out Melbourne Heart they would change their colours, logo and name, but it can now be revealed that this has been all but confirmed. The City of Melbourne website contained details of an apparent deal between Manchester City, the existing club, and the local government.

In what appears to be a deal struck with the City of Melbourne, Heart are to adopt a new logo in line with the council’s own artwork. It’s an obvious connection between a club struggling to forge an identity and a council that desperately needs to connect with the community.

Colours and style will be streamlined, with the club to use “This City is Ours” as their motto.

On the webpage – the link to which has now been broken – intimate details of the partnership were shared.

The Manchester City tour was confirmed by the council with Etihad Stadium naturally winning out over the MCG and the AAMI Park for hosting rights.

Heart, which will in May be unveiled as Melbourne City, will also move all home games to Etihad Stadium, building on the relationship between their owners and the major sponsors of the venue.

Finally, in what is an unfortunate revelation for Melbourne Victory fans, a linked document noted that Gui Finkler would be available for questions at the press conference. It’s understood he will become the first official signing of Melbourne City under their new name.

Heart was contacted late on Monday night but refused to acknowledge the leak, choosing instead to offer an interview with Harry Kewell to discuss his recent departure. The Football Sack declined.
