Major League Soccer (MLS), adidas and Marvel have joined forces in a collaboration that will see legendary Marvel Super Heroes featured on MLS merchandise.

The three organisations announced that the collaboration will include a three-part collection, launching today and continuing throughout the summer on MLSstore.com.

Unveiling the Marvel collection

The collection kicks off with an Avengers-inspired bespoke warm-up jacket, pants and an official match ball. These items will be used during the MLS All-Star Game on July 19 at Audi Field in Washington, DC.

Celebrating soccer and heroes

This collaboration between MLS, adidas and Marvel aims to celebrate the incredible momentum of soccer in North America and provide new avenues for fans of both MLS and Marvel to engage with the sport and its beloved characters.

By combining unique product offerings with creative design elements, MLS and Marvel position themselves at the intersection of sports and fashion, tapping into the cultural moment surrounding heroes both on and off the field.

MLS senior vice-president of consumer products Rachel Hoagland, expressed her excitement about the collaboration, stating: “Major League Soccer and adidas’ Marvel collaboration captures the unique spirit, confident attitude and diverse environment that embodies the sport of soccer.
