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.
The Earthquakes have a great slideshow up of yesterday’s press conference announcing their new partnership with Amway Global. The new jersey’s look great … check out the giant 30ft inflatable version!
According to a post by David Vanderveen on Facebook, XS Energy is also now the official energy drink of the San Jose Earthquakes!

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.
