Chivas USA Add Shirt Sponsor

Chivas USA today became the fourth MLS Club to add a sponsor to front of its jersey. Mexican paint manufacturer Comex is the new shirt sponsor for the "goats" from Los Angeles. Prior to this season MLS clubs wore league mandated sponsors on the back of the jersey underneath the player numbers. For example DC United wore a Sierra Mist advertisement, LA Galaxy wore a Budweiser advertisement and New England wore a Pepsi ad on the back of their jerseys. This year LA Galaxy signed a long term deal with Herblife to have its name on the front of the Galaxy shirts and now three other MLS clubs have followed suit.

At least it's not "Bimbo" which has to be the most ridiculous looking sponsor ever.

A tasteful looking jersey as compared to the horrible writing on the Galaxy jersey.

Agreed.

The Galaxy's jersey looks like someone put a bumper sticker across the front.

Comex sounds a bit like comics to me. Big money teams don't have to worry about things like this. They get sponsors like Sony, AIG and Emirates. How can you knock those names?

How much longer can Suarez or Razov play. I cannot wait for the young kids wearing gold (at least this week) to hammer to them.
