SOUTHSIDERS: "Scarves Up!" for Ruffneck!
VANCOUVER - Ladies and gentlemen, get your scarves up in the air for the best in the business: Ruffneck Scarves are now an official partner of the Whitecaps' loudest and proudest supporters, the Vancouver Southsiders.
"Ruffneck has been producing the Southsiders' scarves for years, and our soon to be released members scarf for 2011 is just the latest example of their quality craftsmanship," said Vancouver Southsiders president John Knox.
"Our collaboration with Ruffneck has resulted in one of the classiest looking supporter scarves in North America, and we can't wait to hold them in the air with pride when the Caps finally take the field at Empire."
The A-side of the 2011 membership scarf features "Vancouver Southsiders" in white lettering across a navy background. The B-side features the the group's motto "We're Blue, We're White" in navy lettering across a sky blue background. Both sides of the scarf feature the Southsiders' iconic compass logo at each end, and a unique, angular argyle background pattern inspired by BC's coastal mountains.
This season, Ruffneck will extend a special discount of 15% off all items in their online scarf shop to official card-carrying members of the Southsiders. This means members can purchase an official Vancouver Whitecaps MLS scarf for under $22 USD, which includes shipping. In addition to creating custom scarves for supporters groups like the Southsiders, Ruffneck is an official supplier to Major League Soccer and the Canadian Soccer Association.
