Ruffneck Scarves to Create Custom Merchandise for NWSL’s Seattle Reign

By Community | February 21, 2013

Ruffneck Scarves have agreed a partnership with Seattle Reign FC as they begin their first season in the newly established National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL).

The Reign will be looking to start a supportive fan base, bronchi and the team scarves will help to advertise the club while also being an item for fans to cherish and generate a positive atmosphere around the Starfire Sports Stadium where games are to be held. 

The NWSL is the latest edition of professional women’s soccer in America. Since the WPS folded roughly one year ago, America’s best players need a new organized league, and the NWSL will provide a great home for talented American female soccer players to play consistently. This should only serve to keep women’s American soccer at the top level worldwide.

For its inaugural season, the NWSL will consist of 8 teams spread across the country. Several former WPS clubs have entered the new league like the Boston Breakers, the Chicago Red Stars, Sky Blue FC, and the Western New York Flash. But there will also be a host of new clubs including the Seattle Reign FC.

Several players set to play with the Seattle Reign FC include star goalkeeper Hope Solo and midfielder Megan Rapinoe, two key American players. With members of the national team spread throughout the NWSL, it will be interesting to see how the players play in different uniforms and against one another. Having a goalie as commanding as Solo should help the Reign be competitive in the upstart league. Also, the team will be an exciting addition to the city that already generates massive support for Seattle Sounders, a men’s soccer team in the MLS. With a women’s team in the fold as well, soccer support should improve in the city.

The Seattle Reign FC is the creation of Bill Predmore, the owner of POP, a digital marketing agency based in Seattle. Recalling the historic women’s basketball team of the same name, the Reign soccer club will be a testament to professional women’s sports in Seattle. 

Ruffneck Scarves has worked with countless soccer clubs since 2007 and provides custom team scarves for organizations like the MLS, Adidas, and the US Soccer Supporters Club. Additionally, Ruffneck makes custom scarves for countless youth clubs, school teams, and professional soccer leagues like the USL, NASL and the NWSL.

Ruffneck Scarves president, Jeff McIntyre says of the new opportunity to work with Seattle Reign FC: “We are excited about the opportunity to work with Seattle Reign FC, and the potential this club has for growth in professional women’s soccer. They are in a soccer-crazy region and are sure to get lots of love from local supporters for years to come.”
