the Auckland Kingz (the \'z\' at the end of the name was sto avoid a clash with another Australian team) were founded in 1999, and played in the Australian NSL until its dissolution in 2004. For the new A-League, their name was changed to the New Zealand Knights. They lost their FIFA competition licence in 2007 and dissolved, being replaced by the Wellington Phoenix.
Having recently been in Auckland I wondered whether there was a local pro soccer (as \'Football\' means Rugby to Kiwis) team. Upon my return, I found out about the Kingz and wondered what it would be like if the name was ressurected with the colours of the Auckland Rugby team an without the annoying Z. Here is my badge proposal.
The crown on top has the Sky Tower in the centre, an Auckland landmark and the tallest man-made structure in the Southern Hemisphere. The upper two quarters are the Southern Cross and a Yacht, as Auckland is known as the \'City of Sails\'.
