Get a sneak peek at the new logo for the Loudoun United FC soccer franchise, which will play at the future @dcunited soccer complex in Leesburg.

I'd gathered this would be the crest for @loudoununitedfc when a) it was attached to the copyright for the club's name & b) I saw it on a club official's business card last wk.
