The newly designed emblem and trophy for the events were also unveiled. Inspired from traffic lights, the emblem gives new meanings to the three colors, with red representing passionate residents, green representing advanced and environmental-friendly local car industry, and yellow representing the vigorous Automobile City, a symbol of the integration of people, automobile and the city.

The trophy for the football championship draws its idea from the camshaft, a key component of the car engine, meaning "source of power, with lots of vigor".

The automobile city, by hosting the spots events, aims to enhance its soft power and provide a platform for residents to show their sports talents and enrich their lives.
