The first-of-its-kind agreement with U.S. Soccer follows a sensational and successful run by the U.S. Men’s National Team (USMNT) to the knockout stage of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. In summer of 2015, the U.S. Women’s National Team (USWNT) seeks to win a third FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada.
Previously, Ruffneck Scarves and U.S. Soccer provided hundreds of thousands of scarves to USMNT fans and the official U.S. Soccer Supporters groups during the 2012/13 CONCACAF Hexagonal home qualifiers and pre-World Cup friendlies around the country.
Going forward, U.S. Soccer/Ruffneck Scarves will be available in stadiums, retailers, soccer specialty stores and online at RuffneckScarves.com and USsoccerstore.com.
“We’re honored that U.S. Soccer chose us as an official licensee,” said Ruffneck Scarves president Jeff McIntyre. “This agreement ensures that our colorful, creatively designed scarves will continue to be worn and held high by the passionate supporters of our national teams. Between the chants and the sight of those scarves, our teams will feel a tremendous amount of positive, passionate support whenever and wherever they go in this world.”
Ruffneck Scarves is also an official licensed scarf provider to Major League Soccer and its member clubs. It is also the soccer scarf licensee for the NCAA and the United Soccer Leagues (USL).
Ruffneck Scarves was founded in 2007 with the goal of becoming the world’s foremost producer of soccer scarves and delivering them to the game’s fanatics around the globe. Based in Seattle, Ruffneck has become America’s leading producer of sports scarves and the exclusive sub-licensee for Adidas to Major League Soccer and its member clubs.
