Amway has increased it’s partnership with the world of football (soccer). Following on from the sponsorship deal with superstar Ronaldinho, and then the Nutrilite partnership with AC Milan, the world’s most successful football club, Amway Global in the US today announced they’re sponsoring the San Jose Earthquakes Major League Soccer team.
Much like Amway, the San Jose Earthquakes have a great history, defeating DC United in the very first Major League Soccer game in 1995. They won the competition in 2001 and 2003 but hit hard times and closed operations in 2005, with the coach and most of the team moving to make up the Houston Dynamo.
In 2008 the San Jose Earthquakes made a return to MLS under the ownership of Lewis Wolff, owner of the Oalkand A’s baseball team.
