Galaxy Jersey Sponsor Deal Announced

It's not the $49-million Citibank sponsorship deal the Galaxy were hoping for, but today they have agreed to a front-of-the-jersey sponsorship deal with nutritional products manufacturer Herbalife. The deal, which was first reported in the online edition of the Wall Street Journal last night, is reportedly worth up to $5 million per year through 2011.

Shawn Hunter, president of AEG Sports, called the Galaxy sponsorship pact "a milestone event in American sports marketing." The Galaxy are now the third team to have a company logo or name featured prominently on the front of their jerseys, behind Real Salt Lake (XanGo) and Red Bull New York (Monster energy drink... or not).
