Official: Cruz Azul Forced to Change Name & Logo

Mexican club Cruz Azul yesterday officially presented their new name and logo. It confirms previous rumors.

Cruz Azul Change Name - "Deportivo Cruz Azul" Become "Club de Fútbol Cruz Azul"

Cruz Azul are owned by the Mexican concrete company Cementos Cruz Azul.

According to media reports, Cruz Azul were forced to change their name and logo to avoid problems with criminal people involved in the club some years ago. They are now called "Club de Fútbol Cruz Azul" instead of "Deportivo Cruz Azul".

Cruz Azul are owned by the concrete company Cementos Cruz Azul. A couple of years ago, people that were in charge of the concrete firm were ousted due to money laundering. Cruz Azul are changing their name and logo and name to avoid the previous guys claiming they still own "Deportivo Cruz Azul".
