- Amway, Kit Sponsors, Shirt Sponsors
Add San Jose to the list of clubs with shirt sponsors. Reuters is now reporting that the Quakes will unveil Amway as their jersey sponsor in 2009.
The deal sounds pretty good too.
It is expected to earn the club between $2 million and $3 million a year. According to the report, the Quakes lost $2.2 million last year, and the deal should reduce their losses to around $1 million.
The Quakes join Chicago, Chivas, Columbus, DC, Houston, LA, New York, RSL, Toronto and Seattle as clubs with sponsors on their kits. Leaving Colorado, Dallas, New England, and Kansas City as the only clubs without a kit sponsor. No word yet on if any of those four will have a sponsor this year. I know Dallas has been working long and hard at getting one but haven’t been able to find the right fit just yet.
Once images come out of what the new kits will look like I will post them here.
