Seattle and the MLU announced today an official jersey sponsorship with Point6 Socks.
Headquartered in Steamboat Springs, Colo., Point6 creates exceptionally soft merino wool products built for optimal comfort and performance.
As part of the sponsorship deal, the Point6 logo will be featured on the front of the Seattle Rainmakers jerseys.
“We are very excited to be sponsored by Point6 Socks,” said Rainmakers General Manager Rusty Brown. “Living and playing in the great Northwest, we know that good foot care can go a long way to being happy whether you are an athlete, day hiker or backcountry enthusiast.”
MLU-branded socks will be available directly through the MLU Shop and featured on Point6’s homepage.
This partnership also features major cross-promotional social media marketing from Point6, the Rainmakers and the MLU.
As the official sock of the MLU, Point6 will outfit every MLU player with performance-engineered socks made from the finest merino wool from sustainably farmed sheep in New Zealand.
“The Seattle Rainmakers and all MLU athletes deserve the best performance socks to maintain the highest level of performance on the field,” said Point6 Operations Chief, Drew Williams. “Point6’s partnership with the MLU allows players to test the limits of our product and aid us in our neverending quest to make the best wool sock ever.”
