TACOMA, Wash. -- The Tacoma Stars have reached an agreement with Ruffneck Scarves to become the “Official Scarf Partner of the Tacoma Stars”, the club announced today.

Ruffneck has established themselves as one of the leading providers of scarves for the soccer industry. Ownership and management of the Stars have a strong and long-running relationship with Ruffneck owner Jeff McIntyre.

“When it came to finding a partner to do our scarves, it was a no-brainer, Ruffneck was our go-to,” Stars VP of Business Development John Crouch said. “Jeff has always invested in the soccer community and created quality products throughout our region. We are proud to be working with Ruffneck to deliver the highest quality scarves and best designs for our supporters.”
