CJ Sapong + Sporting Kansas City win MLS Cup

After an exhilarating 10-round penalty shootout at Sporting Park, Sporting Kansas City became 2013 MLS Cup champions. We’re really stoked for our friend and brand ambassador, CJ Sapong, for this historic step in his career. We’d like to take this chance to revisit our journey with him this past summer in creating his Stay True collection.

  • Prior to sketching any ideas, I spoke extensively with CJ and it was clear early on that he’s a special individual. In a few conversations he’d taught me so much about life and how to always stay positive; to stay true. We wanted the collection to reflect his personality and his beliefs; we gave him free reign in creating the pieces and we think the results reflect that. When we flew to Kansas City to flesh out the designs, I became even more proud that we had chosen him to be our first brand ambassador. Take a second to check out the two videos below to get a glimpse of how the entire thing went down.

    PEYMAN PICKS: Gameweek 12

    After a week off due to some dramatic World Cup qualifiers and international friendlies we can now shift our focus back to Premier League football and our squads. Fatigue, squad rotation and injuries begin to play a part around this time of year as the Winter looms, but for now it’s back to business with few if any of our FPL stars scathed during the international break.
    This week we have some big clashes to look forward to including the Merseyside derby, which kicks off the weekend at Goodison Park. Both Merseyside clubs have impressed this campaign and I expect an entertaining match no doubt with in form strikers Luiz Suarez and Romelu Lukaku set to battle head-to-head. Six of the top eight will clash this weekend allowing for us to begin to see some consistent shape to the table, especially in the top six. This season looks as unpredictable as ever with all of the top clubs in contention for Champions League places and I wouldn’t be surprised if we have some shocking results yet again this weekend with any of the top flight clubs looking susceptible to dropping points at any given time.
