MLS’s Philadelphia Union Agrees Licensing Deal with Ruffneck Scarves

March 15, 2012

Ruffneck Scarves, officially licensed scarf provider to Major League Soccer, has agreed a licensing agreement with MLS’s Philadelphia Union to produce scarves for 2012 season ticket holders.

Philadelphia hosts the Colorado Rapids in the first home match of 2012 on Sunday, March 18, at PPL Park in Chester, Penn. First kick is 4 p.m. ET. Last year PPL Park attendance averaged 99 percent of capacity for Union regular season games.

“Philadelphia has some of the most enthusiastic fans you will find in sports, and our scarves have been around the necks of Union fans these past two seasons,” said Ruffneck Scarves president Jeff McIntyre. “Coming off a playoff appearance last year and with the All-Star Game coming this summer, there should be plenty of scarves raised when the boys march onto the field.”

PPL Park will be the site of the 2012 AT&T MLS All-Star Game on July 25.

The Union, who qualified for the 2011 MLS Eastern Conference Semifinals, begin the 2012 season on March 12 at Portland. 

Ruffneck Scarves has also produced scarves for season ticket holders of the Colorado Rapids, Columbus Crew, D.C. United, Montreal Impact, New York Red Bulls, Portland Timbers, Seattle Sounders FC and Vancouver Whitecaps FC.
