SEATTLE, WA — Ruffneck Scarves is an Official Partner of the Evergreen Premier League (EPLWA), the new statewide men’s soccer circuit announced today. Ruffneck Scarves will be the official supplier of soccer scarves for the league and will also work with the eight EPLWA clubs to develop and produce scarves for local fans.
“We are excited about partnering with the Evergreen Premier League, because we look forward to helping and watching the local soccer scene grow in amazing ways,” says Ruffneck Scarves founder Jeff McIntyre.
“It’s a good fit for both Ruffneck Scarves and EPLWA because it brings local organizations together to continue to elevate the game in our state.”
“I am proud that the EPLWA is associated with Ruffneck Scarves,” says league President Peter Ostrovsky. “They are a Washington State company which started from the ground up, they are recognized locally, nationally and globally for setting the standard for the design and production of soccer scarves and they are clearly a part of the US soccer fabric at all levels. Similarly EPLWA, as a start-up league, strives to set the standard for amateur premier soccer in our state as well as being a catalyst for Washington soccer culture.”
Ruffneck Scarves is currently working with Bellingham United FC, Wenatchee United FC and Spokane SC Shadow on scarves for their debut seasons in the EPLWA.
Along with assisting league clubs, Ruffneck Scarves will also supply the league with a special Evergreen Premier League 2014 Inaugural Season scarf.
“Our mission from the beginning has always been to give back to our local soccer community. Working with local leagues to offer services and special offers to help extend their brands, are just a few of the ways we can give back,” McIntyre says.
