The Best Fundraiser Idea of 2015

Posted on February 04, 2015 by Jeff McIntyre | 0 Comments

Many youth sports teams in America face an uphill battle.  Costs for things like jerseys, transportation, tournament fees, and coach’s wages can make running a sports team a pricey endeavor, and many teams often simply cannot foot the bill. Unfortunately, those costs are often placed upon the players’ families and many simply quit the game.  However, fundraisers can be a major savior for many such teams, and one item in particular has become very successful in helping teams organize successful fundraisers: custom sports scarves!

Many fans feel that team scarves are simply reserved for famous teams like Liverpool and Real Madrid, or World Cup nations like Germany, but they are indeed mistaken.  Sports scarves have taken over the game at every level and can be found out in full force at high school matches and even along the sidelines of youth  games!

The reason is that the scarves are wonderful items for teams and fans.  They come relatively inexpensive, they are lightweight, easy to fold into small bags and purses, can be cleaned, and the list goes on and on.  Their colors blend into those of the players on the field and help to create a wholesome, team focused energy at games.

But perhaps even more importantly, scarves help inspire the fans and players alike.  When a young player looks up to the sidelines for support, he will see his team colors waving around proudly, or perhaps his dad stretching a scarf out proudly, revealing a team chant or logo on the fabric.  These kinds of things will elevate the level of a player’s play and promote passion and hard work.

For fans and parents, the scarves can help get the crowd more positively involved in a game.  If you’ve ever seen an English Premier League match or a Seattle Sounders MLS home game, you will have seen the faithful devotion by fans to their teams.  Scarves are waved about, songs are sung, chants assembled, and blissful scenes of soccer merriment take place.  Having custom scarves created for your team will elevate the atmosphere around your games.  Beyond any financial support generated, you’ll also watch your team have more fun and excitement on game days as a result.

Sports scarves can help your club for years.  Made from the finest materials, they can last for decades and will be seen around town again and again.  This is the kind of thing that will enhance your overall presence around town and could well help urge the top players in your area to sign up for your team.  Scarves are a normal fashion accessory that are worn everywhere on cold days.  Therefore, you’ll see the presence of scarves far beyond the confines of the field.  This could help start a powerful winning tradition for your club!

And so when it comes to fundraising, there really is no substitute for the soccer scarf (Why else would all the professional teams have them?).  The item is affordable, inspiring, colorful, and soft.  Check with Ruffneck Scarves today to begin the process of ordering team scarves for your club.

Custom Scarves preserve your team memories

Posted on November 03, 2014 by Jeff McIntyre | 0 Comments


While any season spent with a youth soccer team can be an absolute joy, often times players and coaches will find that all the fun is over just as soon as things really got rolling.  Most soccer seasons are just 3 months long and will end.  While photos and plastic trophies attempt to help players hold on to the fun memories, those things often collect dust and disappear within the boxes of storage closets from their youth.  The memories typically fade as well.  But there is another item that will help your team remember the glory days of their soccer team; it’s called the soccer scarf!

Most people that understand the world of soccer know all about the soccer scarf craze that’s well ingrained in the sport.  Major clubs like Liverpool, Manchester United, and Real Madrid have proud hoards of spectators who all bring their team scarves along to the matches.  They wave them around, they hold them up together in scarf walls, and they clutch them in nervous excitement during the final moments of tense matches.  But many people don’t realize that custom soccer scarves are now available for teams at every level!

For youth teams the soccer scarves can be a wonderful item.  They are utilized for fundraisers, advertising, and can be widely distributed to friends, family members, and the players themselves.  For the players, these scarves can be an item to cherish and hold onto their enjoyable season. 

The important thing about scarves is that they are a usable item.  They keep people warm, they are colorful, and they can be used as decorations around your home.  They don’t just collect dust.  Every time you see the custom scarf around, you’ll be reminded of the season.  Perhaps it will rekindle thoughts of that glorious game-winning goal you scored, or perhaps that tremendous comeback win from 2-0 down.  Or maybe you’ll be reminded of the great friendships you made or the vast improvements you found in your play that year.  Whatever fantastic memories you have of that season, your scarves will reunite you with them time and time again as you use it.

Another great attribute of the soccer scarves is their high quality 100% Acrylic fabric that enables them to last for decades.  This is a vital ingredient to the preservation of memories through the scarves.  What good would such a scarf be if it only lasted one year?  Fortunately, our custom scarves are manufactured to the highest standards to ensure that your batch will last as long as the memories themselves!  Why else would MLS and the U.S. Soccer Supporters club choose Ruffneck Scarves to be their official scarf provider?

But now your high school, college, or youth soccer team can create a long-lasting tradition of team scarves as well!  Creating positive memories and enjoyable experiences is one of the key goals of youth soccer, and with a tangible gift like a custom soccer scarf that represents all of the attributes of your team, you can help the players rekindle the season and those fine memories for years to come down the road!
