Ruffneck, an official scarf supplier of U.S. Soccer, Major League Soccer (MLS), USL, and the NCAA, was founded with a goal of promoting the greatest game in the world by providing fans with high-quality soccer scarves.
“We are very excited about formalizing our partnership with Soccer Without Borders. SWB does so many great things for children both domestic and abroad and we feel they are perfectly aligned with our company values,” stated Ruffneck Founder Jeff McIntyre.
Established around the same time as Soccer Without Borders, Ruffneck Founder Jeff McIntyre has served as a valued Advisory Board Member throughout its lifespan, in addition to designing and distributing the "Playing for Change" SWB scarf.
"Ruffneck Scarves has demonstrated its strong commitment to giving back, supporting the mission of Soccer Without Borders from day one. Embedded in their model is the opportunity to use their high-quality scarves and creative designs to help teams and clubs meet their fundraising goals, which has helped grow the beautiful game across North America. Jeff's leadership and council have been integral to our growth as an organization, and we are proud to continue to work closely with Ruffneck Scarves to advance our mutual goals," said SWB Co-Founder and Executive Director Mary McVeigh. In celebration of this announcement, Soccer Without Borders is offering Ruffneck “Playing for Change” scarves at the discounted price of $12 for a limited time.
