Playing the 'guess the kit sponsor' game

'Danimal' on the GS boards tries to unlock the sponsor riddle.

That's what it's all about right now in the GOALSeattle.com forums.

Will it be the favorite XBOX 360, or the dark horse Jones Soda Co.?

Perhaps something 'out of the blue' will go on to the green?

Both of the above have a certain street appeal to them, and hit a nice target demographic age 16-50ish.

You've got to wonder if Jones Soda can afford to be on Seattle's kit, after reading this Seattle Times story from a week or so ago.

Certainly XBOX could pay the going rate.

Speaking of that...what is the going rate to be on Seattle's chest?

Chicago got around $1 million per season. LA got $4-5 million per year. RSL got $1 million per season.

I would think Seattle would come in ahead of RSL and Chicago, and behind LA, unless a certain Frenchman is headed our way.

What say 2 million or so per year?


  1. "Sounders FC to Announce Partnership That Will Have Global Impact" says the media alert for tomorrow's announcement...

  2. Don't forget that DC United's getting at least 2.8 million greenbacks a year. I'd say 2-2.5 million is realistic.

  3. I hope the deal is a short one, then if/when they do sign a DP, they may want to raise the price.

  4. SPOILER threads now up in the GOALSeattle forums. They say who, what and how much....
