Hot on the heals of the Amway Global’s San Diego Quake’s sponsorship and Nutrilite’s 3 year extension as title sponsor of the Canadian Soccer Championships, today comes the news they’re sponsoring the new women’s professional soccer league team the Los Angeles Sols. You can read the press release on Amway Watch, as well as the LA Sols home page, which includes the cool photo to the left :). I’m still trying to work out what the heck Kobe was doing there, but hey, he looks good next to those Amway logos! The gal standing next to (below?) him is Marta Vieira de Silva, a Brazilian striker and widely considered the best player in the women’s game.

Cool! Marta has been playing soccer in the Swedish league for several years! She is the worlds best player!
Go Marta, go Amway!
Kobe was there to bring some attention to the new women’s league.
But he is also a fan… http://www.latimes.com/sports/la-sp-kobe-marta-soccer6-2009mar06,0,5226917.story
