MLS Seeks New Revenue Source With Jersey Patch Deals Beginning In 2020

By Barry Janoff

October 24, 2018: Major League Soccer, which already enables its teams to sign jersey-front sponsorship deals, said it would increase the ad space on its jerseys beginning with the 2020 season.

The league has approved the selling of sponsored sleeve patch logos on team uniforms, with clubs being able to place a second sponsor on the right sleeve of the game jersey.

MLS’ jersey sponsor is adidas, which has its logo on all jerseys.

The league said the new initiative is a four-year pilot program, and available only to those clubs that have already secured a primary jersey sponsor.

The size of the sponsored sleeve patch will replace and be roughly the same size as the existing MLS logo on the right jersey sleeve, which is roughly 2.5 x 2.5 inches.

MLS did not reveal financial figures regarding the potential sale of the sleeve jersey patches.

MLS jersey-front sponsorships range between $2-$5 million per year, according to industry analysts.

“The sleeve patch is a premium opportunity for brands to be connected with our league and clubs in mutually beneficial ways,” Gary Stevenson, president and managing director, MLS Business Ventures, said via the league.

“As our league continues to expand, and with more fans in the U.S. and Canada viewing our matches, attending our games, and engaging on social media, the visibility of the sleeve patches will be substantial."

Among the MLS jersey-front sponsors are Los Angeles Galaxy-Herbalife Nutrition, YouTube TV-Los Angeles FC, DC United-Leidos, New York City FC-Etihad Airways, Chicago Fire-Valspar, Portland Timbers-Alaska Airlines; Seattle Sounders-Xbox, Toronto FC-BMO and Orlando City FC-Orlando Health.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic of the Galaxy has the top-selling MLS jersey heading to the playoffs on Oct. 31, per the league.

The top five also include Carlos Vela (Los Angeles FC), Josef Martinez (Atlanta United FC) and Wayne Rooney (DC United).

The NBA is in the second-year of a three-season trial period allowing teams to sign jersey ad patch deals. All but three NBA teams currently have such deals. The average is $9 million.

Nascar has long covered its cars and racing togs with logo patches.
