Step1:

Click here to download the shape and brush set I used to create the logo. Now create a new image 800 x 600, and set the background color to white. Create a new layer by pressing (Shift+Ctrl+N) or click on Layer > New > Layer... Use the shape that you downloaded to create the shield, change the color to #00549b. It should look like my image below.

Now hold Ctrl and click on the shield layer to select it. When it is selected it should look like the image below.

Click on Select > Modify > Contact and change the contact to 8 pixels.

Now click on the Rectangular Marquee Tool image 4 make sure the Subtract From selection is selected image 5 . With the shield still selected subtract the selection until your image looks like mine below.

With your selection still selected create a new layer, Layer > New > Layer... Click on the Paint Bucket image 8 and fill the selection with white #FFFFFF. At this point your image should look like the screen shot below.

Create a new layer; we need to add the stars. Click on the Brush Tool image 10 and select the Star brush

make sure the dimension is set to 19 pixels. Change the color to white and start adding the stars. Create three stars on different layers as shown below. To make it a little simple after creating the three stars as shown in my example, highlight the stars layers and press Ctrl+E to merge the layers. Now just duplicate (Ctrl+J) that layer to add more stars. When you are satisfied with the stars and their positions, merge then all into one layer.

Now we will add the Football in the middle of the stars. Create a new layer by pressing (Shift+Ctrl+N) or click on Layer > New > Layer... Using the brushes that you downloaded at the beginning. Click on the brush below, and set the dimension to 61 pixels.
