Arminia Bielefeld Won't Change Logo
Update: Local papers have reported that the proposed new club logo was not accepted by the Arminia Bielefeld members and will therefore not be adopted by the club. Only about 35% chose the updated logo, while 60% were required for it to even make the general assembly agenda.
In the meantime, the club's 21-22 kits are set to be presented this week.
Arminia Bielefeld have announced that they hope to introduce a new club logo for next season.
Specifically, they want to do away with the laurel wreath that was added to the badge in 2000, while also reverting the style of the 'A' in the center of the flag.

The new design reverts the changes made back in 2000 and was created in collaboration between the club and the fan advisory board.

But before being officially adopted by the club, the proposed emblem will have to overcome two hurdles. First, it will have to gain 60% approval in an online vote conducted among all of the club's members until June 21. If that milestone is reached, the logo proposal will be added to the agenda of the members' assembly, which will take place at the end of the month and will also include a vote on the club color.
The club went on to explain that the changed badge would only be adopted in time for the 2022-23 season as production for the 2021-22 kits is already finalized.
