The day has finally come! USA will begin Hexagonal play tonight against their biggest rivals, Mexico, at 8pm ET in Columbus, Ohio. As part of this historic match, Ruffneck Scarves is honored to have been asked to produce a special match day scarf to commemorate the occasion.
Ruffneck Scarves is proud to present you the official US Soccer versus Mexico, Novemeber 11th, 2016 match day scarf.
Creating a scarf for such an important occasion, on such an important day meant that this one had to be extra special. Here’s a look into what when into the design of this historic scarf.
A.) As a nod to the tournament, the background of the scarf consists of a dark blue and white hexagonal pattern. Each side of the hexagon representing one of the 6 teams competing for their chance to advance to the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
B.) Columbus, Ohio. Not only is Ohio the location of tonight’s match, the USMNT has had a wildly successful record at MAPFRE (particularly against Mexico), the same pitch they will play on this evening. Dos a Cero anyone??? Many USMNT fans regard Columbus as the Yanks unofficial home field, hosting Mexico anywhere else would have been out of the question.
C.) The date of tonight’s match is particularly meaningful, as if falls on the United States observance of Veteran’s Day. Bold, yellow chevron patterns can be seen proudly displayed at both ends of the scarf as a representation of respect and gratitude for the men and women who have, and continue to, sacrifice for our country and freedom.
D.) On one end of the scarf is the US Soccer crest. We opted to put the crest on a white background so there were zero distractions from the solid USA logo to broadcast your support for the Yanks.
E.)November 11th, 2016. Hopefully a date to remember. They say 11/11 is supposed to be a lucky number…F.) USA VS MEXICO. Our neighbors to the south. Our biggest rival. The most anticipated matchup. Matches against Mexico are always exciting. There will be huge crowds, lots at stake, and at the end of the night hopefully a United States victory.
These exclusive matchday scarves will be available for purchase at US Soccer stores in Columbus or at USsoccer.com while supplies last!
