Ever wonder how you should wear your scarf so you fit in with the supporters groups and season ticket holders? Well, we've got 5 different ways for you to look like a pro just by switching up your scarf wearing style
1. The Standard
Allows you to have easy access from wearing it around your neck, to raising it up and joining the celebration while repping your team!
2. The Wrap
Weather at outdoor soccer games can be rough and windy. Which is why it's important to grab multiple layers for the match. But if your face is freezing, this is the perfect method to block that constant cold breeze.
3. The Hook, Line and Sinker
A more casual look that’s usually tucked inside of a jacket or vest, making this the most fashionable choice.
4. The Classic Flip
Leaving one end hanging in the front and sometimes in the back as well, this method is usually a lazy fit but looks and feels comfortable over a coat no matter what the weather.
5. The "Scarves Up"
The ultimate celebratory standard. Putting your scarves up for the stadium to see.

For the first 9 ½ years of her life, Kaiya Castellanos spent most of her time doing what girls her age typically do. She went to school with her cousins and friends. She enjoyed art and writing poetry. She played soccer, basketball, and volleyball. Kaiya spent most of her time outdoors being active on her bike, pogo and rip stick. She loved to go hiking and fishing with her dad, mom, and older brother. Kaiya was also very loving, helping her mom and dad to welcome several foster children into their home. Other than doing a few chores around the house, Kaiya was living a carefree life.
On March 6, 2017 Kaiya was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. When Type T1D strikes children, it is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting and blood-glucose testing, and a lifelong dependence on injected insulin. Insulin is not a cure, and it does not prevent against the possibility of serious complications such as kidney failure, blindness, and stroke.
Kaiya is still the same fun loving active girl, but now testing her blood-glucose 6-8 times a day and receiving 4-5 insulin injections a day. By the time Kaiya reaches the age of 68, she will have endured over 198,560 finger pokes for blood-glucose testing and suffered through over 99,280 insulin injections.
Donations will help the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation continue to bring life-changing therapies to the T1D community until they can find a cure for this serious autoimmune disease.

We all know the vital impact soccer scarves have on their respective clubs; why else would practically every club and country on the planet make them? But what message should you convey on your team’s scarf? While the choice of colors should be pretty straight forward based on team colors, and the overall design should reflect the type of personality that your team has, what about the actual physical statement made on the scarf? Here are some tips in conveying an effective message through a soccer scarf:
First off, you want this statement to be short and sweet. Remember, one of the big impacts that scarves make is on the players themselves. A struggling player looks towards the stands for fan support. Realize these specific players may be up to a hundred yards away from this scarf. If you’ve got a full list of accomplishments and accolades about each player on the team, chances are the font will have to be so small that your players will never even know what they say. You want a simple statement that can be printed large and clear, so that everyone in the entire stadium can see when a fan lifts their scarf and holds it out wide. Something like “Go Cats” or “Ram Pride” is ideal.
A big piece of importance regarding a scarf’s message is that you want it to be general enough to encapsulate every facet of the team as well. Thus, the club’s name or mascot is often an ideal choice. Specific statements about opponents or a particular game aren’t ideal. You certainly don’t need to mention any other teams, and scarves made for a single game are only good for major professional matches like the FA Cup or World Cup Final where they carry a memorabilia-like quality, but aren’t feasible for a high school championship or playoff game.
However, one good idea for listing such an achievement would be if your team were state or division champions. You could write “2015 State Champs” and the fond memory would inspire players and fans for years down the road.
Another valuable message is a popular team chant for your club. “Go Bulls Go” or “Let’s Go Spartans” is the type of scarf message that inspires players, rekindling the reassuring spirit of hearing fans urging you on. Additionally, such a message would also help urge fans to chant more. As we see in the beautiful game time and time again, when the fans truly get behind a team and sing and chant throughout the game, anything is possible.
Basically, it all boils down to what message you to see on the custom soccer scarves, which will both inspire the players and be a fun, engaging slogan for your club. In most cases, it really is the simplest and most straightforward statement. However, toy with a couple ideas that would potentially work. Also know that our Ruffneck Scarves staff can help provide feedback for your ideas and help with the design process from start to finish. Remember, with the right message and spirit, your soccer team can go on to do great things!
