/ eca football and our cheeky new emblem.
eca football club was formed on the 26th ofJune 2006 due to a shortage of sporting facilities and general healthyness at edinburgh college of art.
the badge is tribute to the eca's football heritage of past and present. the original eca football team began in the eighties during the falklands war. not surprisingly as britain was at war with argentina, sales of the latter's football tops plummeted, forcing retailers to drop the price of argentinean tops dramatically. the eca's players of that time, used to living off potato peelings saw this as the perfect opportunity to buy some quality strips at a highly reduced price. for seasons the football team of eca played in the colours of the mighty argentina.
although the current eca strip is not that of argentina, their stripes proudly remain in our emblem as a nod to our clever yet controversial past.
