Major League Style: MLS Cup and STAPLE Unite for a Trend-Setting Streetwear Collection

Ahead of the much-anticipated 2023 MLS Cup this coming Saturday, featuring some serious gaming between Columbus and LAFC, the league has gone all in, splashing out the news of a trend-setting bond with streetwear heavyweight, STAPLE.

This offbeat venture, the brainchild of the creative powerhouse, Jeff Staple, is blazing a trail with its first-of-a-kind collection that brilliantly entwines the exhilaration of reaching the finals of the MLS Cup with the urban cool vibe of streetwear. With STAPLE lending its creative genius to the mix, the collection pays a classy tribute to the distinguished legacy and profound stature of Major League Soccer.

Drawing its narrative from the nostalgic charm of vintage soccer graphics and the symbolic shades - silver, gold, and black, of the Phillip F. Anschutz trophy, this collection presents an inspired selection. The capsule boasts a duo of cool t-shirts, a cushy hoodie, an everyday crewneck sweatshirt, and a debonair rugby polo. Tying up the mix, there are some chic accessories, featuring a cap and a scarf.

Admittedly, the hot demand for this collection will most likely come from the die-hard fans of Columbus and LAFC, who are presently squaring up for the epic football showdown due this Saturday. However, even with the fanatic competition ebbing down after the match, the easy-going charm of the collection, launching MLS Cup themed apparel for soccer enthusiasts, will persist.

Commenting on the launch, Rachel Hoagland, MLS SVP of Consumer Products, shared, We are thrilled to have a renowned streetwear brand like STAPLE along for the ride for what will mark the end of another exciting season in Major League Soccer.

"This special collection is the latest evolution of the League’s commitment to spotlighting the creativity in our sport and connecting soccer with progressive fashion offerings"

It’s a huge honour to collaborate with Major League Soccer, the largest soccer organisation in the United States, to bring streetwear culture to the pitch!” says Jeff Staple. “This collection embodies the winning spirit of the Philip F. Anschutz Trophy, and we hope fans wear it with pride as we celebrate the next champion.”

Every bead of sweat, every surge of adrenaline, in essence, the unrivaled valor echoed by the Philip F. Anschutz Trophy pulsates within this collection. As we prepare to write another ode to the champions, we relish the thought of fans donning these outfits, beaming pride as bright as floodlights on a still night.
