The world of Premier League mascots is weird. We’ve sifted through all 20 strange and amazing candidates to determine who is actually the king of the hill. Below is our list of all football mascots UK. (This list does not include Norwich city mascot.)

About Premier League Football Logos

The current Premier League logo, which is a condensed and simplified version of the previous emblem, was unveiled in 2016. The purple and white logo features a stylized head of the lion in a crown, which is situated to the left of the wordmark, which is set in two layers. The title-case inscription is done in a rounded sans-serif typeface with typical somewhat stretched curves and straight cut letter-lines. 

Despite the fact that this is the first logo without a white and red football, it retains the original style and atmosphere, demonstrating a deep connection to the roots.

20 Premier League mascots

Moonchester – Manchester City

Moonchester - Manchester City

Apart from present affluence and a profusion of winner medals, Manchester City doesn’t really have anything obvious about them since changing their badge from the eagle to the new(ish) Citizens badge. They did, however, draw inspiration from their song, Blue Moon.

This mascot has the advantage of being completely operational and having unobstructed arms. Furthermore, it can produce genuine fists. It does, however, have a conjoined eye and appears to be far too happy with itself.

Mighty Red – Liverpool

Mighty Red - Liverpool

Liverpool is represented by the liver bird, which was one of the easier options to make when choosing a mascot. It’s said to offer the club luck, and Jurgen Klopp will be hoping for that this season as he attempts to help Liverpool win another Premier League title.

Mighty Red appears to be a fairly solid organism: strong beak, formidable chest, and spines for some reason. The all-too-white gnashers, on the other hand, would make even Roberto Firmino cringe, and suggest a lifestyle of pampered comfort unsuitable for top-tier mascot combat.

Stamford & Bridget the Lion – Chelsea

Stamford & Bridget the Lion - Chelsea

Possibly the best-named Premier League duo. Chelsea may be Premier League champions, but Stamford the Lion is relegation fodder in this match, with little teeth and the body of a Soccer Saturday panelist.

Bridget, Stamford’s companion, appears to be more capable of controlling herself in a fight. The lion has long been a component of Chelsea’s logo, and Stamford and Bridget do a good job of representing it as the club’s male and female lions.

Gunnersaurus Rex – Arsenal 

Gunnersaurus Rex - Arsenal

Since 1993, the Gunnersaurus Rex has served as Arsenal’s official club mascot at both Highbury and the Emirates. The Gunnersaurus Rex has recently made headlines owing to his dismissal from the football club, with no supporters able to see the fantastic dinosaur mascot in action.  Thankfully, Mesut Ozil stepped in to pay his wages, only to be dropped from the club’s Premier League squad a few weeks later.

Fred the Red – Manchester United

Fred the Red - Manchester United

Manchester United’s Fred the Red is a well-known and popular mascot because of the large number of Manchester United fans worldwide and the massive marketing push. If you’ve ever been to Old Trafford, you’ve probably seen some of the best dance moves from any mascot in the country. While the rest of him is unremarkable, Fred has a great chin to work with thanks to that plastic face. This effectively forms a Michael Carrick-Esque shield over his more vulnerable features.

Hammerhead – West Ham

Hammerhead - West Ham

Look at it. It’s the undisputed champion. Hammerhead is part robot, part mascot. This nightmarish creation appears to be Craig Charles’ tormented fever dream after a particularly harrowing session of filming at Robot Wars, looking like the bastard offspring of Optimus Prime and a brutalist east London tower block.

According to the club’s websites, Hammerhead scored goals similar to their past great striker, Vic Watson. In addition, West Ham United will be hoping Hammerhead can persuade his players to perform similarly to their former goalscorer.

Chirpy Cockerel – Tottenham Hotspur

Chirpy Cockerel - Tottenham Hotspur

Despite those spindly rooster legs, Chirpy exudes a peculiar hardness. You’d come cannoning back off him like a tightly wound trampoline if you took a 20-yard run up and threw yourself at his midsection. That was before he came at you with his crazed look and six-fingered bird arms. Tottenham Hotspur will be hopeful that their new stadium will allow them to continue their drive up the league and ultimately win a trophy. If they do, Chirpy will be leading the fans.

Wolfie & Wendy Wolf – Wolverhampton Wanderers

Wolfie & Wendy Wolf - Wolverhampton Wanderers

Wolverhampton Wanderers had a much simpler time choosing their mascot because the writing was on the wall. Wendy and Wolfie, two wolves, serve as the club’s mascots.

Hercules Lion – Aston Villa 

Hercules Lion - Aston Villa 

The mascot of Aston Villa is a lion named ‘Hercules the Lion,’ after the club’s nickname, ‘the Lions.’ Hercules has worked for the club for decades and was even fired after the club was relegated to the Championship a few years ago.

Sammy Saint – Southampton

Sammy Saint - Southampton

Sammy the Saint is a devoted hound who lives in St. Mary’s. Southampton has always been strong at finding deals in the transfer market as well as developing some fantastic young players. The Saints will be hoping Sammy can find some more as they battle for a spot in the top half.

Pete the Eagle – Crystal Palace

Pete the Eagle - Crystal Palace

Pete the Eagle and Kayla the (real-life) Eagle are Crystal Palace’s mascots. Kayla, who flies across the pitch before every home game, is a Crystal Palace trademark. Pete, on the other hand, gets to do all of the community work and walks around Selhurst Park as one of the coolest mascots around. Pete the Eagle’s large plastic beak clearly allows him to feast on smaller fans, but do the sunglasses conceal a weakness in his vision?

Filbert Fox – Leicester City

Filbert Fox - Leicester City

Leicester City has done an excellent job of marketing itself around foxes. ‘Filbert the Fox’ lives on, having attended over 1000 games in 25 years and becoming the man of the moment numerous times during the historic 2015/16 title-winning season.

Filbert’s menacing eyes and quick-footed mobility suggest he’d undoubtedly ‘bang’ you if you talked. Despite the fact that he may have true pipe cleaner arms, he finishes just outside the Champions League berths.

Gully the Seagull – Brighton & Hove Albion

Gully the Seagull - Brighton & Hove Albion

It’s quite repulsive to look at. Gully resembles Michael Gove and Bert from Sesame Street in his dirty, bug-eyed appearance,… and those things are not difficult on a shocking scale. Brighton & Hove Albion has an easy choice. Brighton, which is located near the seashore, gets its name from the seagulls that come there every year. With a vastly improved Brighton side, ‘Gully’ would be flying high right now.

Maggie & Monty Magpie – Newcastle

Maggie & Monty Magpie - Newcastle

It would be unusual for Newcastle United not to have a magpie as a mascot. To appease the magpie logo, the Magpies have introduced a second magpie named Maggie.

The beaks of Newcastle mascot appear to be useful, the eyes suggest a determination beyond simply collecting shiny things (like flaky French players), and, well, there are two of them. However, in a fight, those flappy arms would do less actual damage than an Alan Pardew headbutt.

Buzz – Brentford  

Buzz - Brentford

Brentford FC’s nickname is ‘The Bees,’ so its mascot should match that. Buzz, their mascot, is a bee that may be found in the stadium on game days or making special visits throughout the town.

Kop Cat – Leeds United

Kop Cat - Leeds United

The Kop Cat has been Leeds United’s official club mascot since 2005 when he was formally designated as a snow leopard species. This is obviously a nod to the club’s white colors. With his bright-eyed and bushy-tailed demeanor, Leeds United’s mascot is inoffensive enough. However, he shares a name with Elland Road legend Lucas Radebe, which is a nice touch.

N/A – Everton

 

Everton is an outlier in the Premier League mascots. They do not have a mascot for several reasons. Changy the Elephant was the Everton mascot before Mr. Toffee, but they are now in mascot limbo after losing the beer company as a sponsor.

Robin Hood – Nottingham Forest  

Robin Hood - Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest’s mascot is Robin Hood, who returned in 2018 after a three-year absence. Robin Hood serves as the team’s mascot since 2007.

Cherry Bear – Bournemouth

Cherry Bear - Bournemouth

Probably the most divisive of the Premier League mascots – and not because bees and Burnley don’t go together! The mascot has been involved in a variety of incidents, ranging from rugby tackling a supporter who encroached on the pitch to being imprisoned in the stadium. Burnley doesn’t play the most scintillating football, but at least Bertie Bee is there to cause havoc when things get boring. Not only is the Premier League mascot the least ‘hard,’ but it is also possibly the least threatening-looking entity of all time.

Billy The Badger – Fulham 

Billy The Badger - Fulham

The Fulham’s current mascot is Billy Badger. He is a black and white badger that resides at the club’s training grounds, Motspur Park. It’s unclear how he gets from there to Craven Cottage, but it could be through burrows. He is dressed in a number 79 shirt.
