Who Should Sponsor D.C. United’s New Shirts?

D.C. United Jersey

D.C. United's jerseys will no longer feature Volkswagen logos next year, the club and the carmaker told the Washington Post's Steven Goff today. That ends a sponsorship agreement that lasted five years, but it also leaves an opening for new advertising space on the local soccer team's shirts.

Some folks are already speculating about who might replace VW—Walmart, perhaps? Or Pollo Campero? Fix up the image above with the logo of your choice pasted in the middle and send your designs to mmadden+dcu@washingtoncitypaper.com. We'll post the ones that make the most sense, look the best, or make us laugh the most later today.

    Don't have access to photoshop right now, but I would lurve to see DC Brau splayed across that jersey.

    Like "DC" I would love to see DC Brau be the new sponsor. Does MLS have limits on beer companies being sponsors? Pollo Campero would be pretty awesome as well.

    OK, Guest, can you give us sponsored jerseys for Sulaimon Brown, ice-cream-cone-in-the-snow guy, and some Juggalos?

    (I am not that good at Photoshop.)

    I respectfully decline w/r/t the juggalos.

    @Mike Madden: Thanks. I think it's my favorite. The photo you used for yours is great though.

    Honestly, I would love to see bens or DC Brau, but it'll probably be Geico, who will get this or the new stadium - they're itching to sponsor something since they lost nats park.

    While a local brand would be great it's not realistic. Neither DC Brau or Ben's would invest the millions it takes to sponsor a national brand.

    Bens reports about a million in annual sales, while DC Brau is way below that. The VW deal was for almost 4 million. That kind of money would force Bens or DC Brau to close business. I am all about local exposure, especially for two great products but it's just not realistic. We will see GEICO for sure.
