The people have spoken, and they want San Diego's soccer team named 'Footy McFooty Face'


The legend of Boaty McBoatFace is alive and well.

San Diego is vying for a new Major League Soccer team in 2020. SoccerCity SD, the group behind the expansion, made a critical error (or a brilliant decision) to let a  public poll decide the team name. 

The public has spoken. As of about 9 a.m. Eastern time Wednesday, Footy McFooty Face is in the lead with 8,525 votes. That's more than three times more than the nearest competitor, the much more traditional-sounding "San Diego Surf."

The rest of the proposed names is a mix of very possible and hilarious but unlikely monikers.

The team doesn't exist yet, but it already has a Twitter account.

And fans are flocking to the name.
