The Kansas City Mavericks’ history dates back to 2009 when the club was founded. At that time this ice hockey team had the name the Missouri Mavericks.

Before the 2017-2018 season they changed their name to the Kansas City Mavericks. The fact is that Independence, Missouri, where the team is based, is a satellite city of Kansas City. Their intention was to identify themselves more clearly on a national level.

2009 — 2013

Kansas City Mavericks Logo 2009
The Kansas City Mavericks logo from 2009 was composed of a funny and playful caricature of a horse in a hockey uniform, ice-skates, and with a hockey stick in its hands (worn in blue gloves). The horse looked strong and determined, showing the mood of the club. On the background, the delicate blue and white contour of Texas could be seen, and under the mascot emblem — the wordmark on a black banner. The “Mavericks” inscription in the uppercase was executed in a slightly slanted sans-serif typeface with bold lines and straight cuts, in a light blue color and thin white outline.

2013 — 2014

The 2013 emblem looks like a skewed, black shield with the team’s name written in black letters along the top line. The shield itself occupied three objects: a blue hockey stick above, the bronze horseshoe in the middle and a white puck in the bottom.

2014 — 2015

All the Mavericks’ logos are in line with their name ‒ they feature a horse. Their first logo which was in use from 2009 to 2014 is the image of a stallion on skates holding a hockey stick. The horse looks intense and aggressive. As a sign of their belonging to the state of Missouri there is its outline in the background. The wordmark “Mavericks” is placed below. The colors are light blue, orange, black and white ‒ a combination that is meant to attract attention.

The logo introduced in 2014 shows the horse’s head with an orange mane. It is framed by a circle with the word “Missouri” above and “Mavericks” below and two horseshoes on the sides.

2016 — 2018
