- Kit Sponsors, Microsoft, MLS Expansion
Well, while most were watching the US-England game. Folks up in Seattle decided to announce a partnership between Microsoft/XBOX 360 and MLS expansion side Seattle Sounders FC.
As you can see from the mock up of the jersey, it should look pretty cool. Thankfully it won’t look a thing like the rumored one I posted a week ago on here (I know several of you hated it, with good reason too).
It makes me laugh a bit though that a photo was released about this kit and had a different sponsor on it earlier this week. Jones Soda Company was that apparent sponsor according to MLS Rumors.
As kick-ass as that would have been, I have to say, having a company like Microsoft as a sponsor is even more kick-ass. Even though I am an Apple guy these days, I can’t shy away from the fact about having a quality gozillion-dollar company backing a club in MLS.
UPDATE: With another photo from the AP. Members of the Seattle Sounders FC administration unveil the club’s new jersey sponsorship.
