Gloucester Rugby today announced that the club is changing their logo as part of a club-wide review.
Stephen Vaughan, CEO announced the change as part of a number of new developments at an event at Kingsholm today.
But a lot of people were pointing out that the new logo looks a lot like Leicester Tigers emblem.
I wonder how long it took the ex Leicester marketing guy / girl to come up with that logo ?🤔

I get that rebranding is all the rage at the moment, but isn’t that Gloucester logo a bit similar to Leicester’s logo?

No issue with the club changing the logo (doesn’t look too bad) but did it have to be the one that looked similar to Leicester’s? #GlawsFamily

Guys, you’ve put up the Leicester logo by mistake….

But some fans, including club legend Phil Vickery like the redesign:
Good job everyone
