Chivas USA today became the fourth MLS Club to add a sponsor to front of its jersey. Mexican paint manufacturer Comex is the new shirt sponsor for the “goats” from Los Angeles. Prior to this season MLS clubs wore league mandated sponsors on the back of the jersey underneath the player numbers. For example DC United wore a Sierra Mist advertisement, LA Galaxy wore a Budweiser advertisement and New England wore a Pepsi ad on the back of their jerseys. This year LA Galaxy signed a long term deal with Herblife to have its name on the front of the Galaxy shirts and now three other MLS clubs have followed suit.
