Okay cool.

However, I will state that finding good pictures of the helmets is REALLY difficult! For some reason the CAFL webpage and Facebook page have not featured a reveal of the uniforms nor helmets. They have pictures to be sure, but they are really blurry, obscure, and taken from a distance. I honestly believe that most of the photos on the Facebook page are taken from a cell phone camera, snapping photos from the computer screen. I've also contacted the league asking them for pictures and information, but they haven't gotten back to me in the last month.

So, with all that said, I will do my best to provide what I can to help create the helmets.



Beijing Lions:

Gold/yellow shell with black facemask

Dalian Dragon Kings:

Looks like blue helmets and grey(?) face masks.

Guangzhou Power:

silver helmet with black face mask. Cropped logo that is just the football/arm, no text

Qingdao Clipper:

red shells with blue face mask. The clipper logo is on the helmets, but I can't find any good photos of it on the helmet. They are either blurry or too far away to get a good look.

Shanghai Skywalkers:

White shell and white face mask with the team logo

Shenzhen Naja:

I honestly can't tell if this is a black helmet and face mask or a very dark green helmet and facemask. This is best as I could find with the pictures.

Again I'm sorry for the poor images but the league is making it really difficult to find good photos. I honestly don't think that they hired photographers at all for this.

Thanks, I believe it may be possible to also get good looks at those designs via youtube videos, e.g.:

Go to 27:22 for a good view of the Qingdao helmet. Several entire games appears to have been uploaded to youtube.

I'll try to work on some of those in the next few days.
