Omaha Men’s Soccer is planning to play in denim onesie during Saturday evening’s contest against the University of Denver at CIBER Field. The recently announced sponsorship deal allows the Mavericks to partner with Levi’s to launch a new soccer clothing line.
“Talk about the perfect sponsorship (for Omaha)”, said athletic director Trev Alberts, who apparently is dreamy, as he dropped 50 cents into the athletic department coffee vending machine. “Overalls are my weekend go-to.”
According to reports, the team has been playing and practicing in the new uniforms with mixed results. Denim is a coarse material and players have complained of wedgies, chafing, and poor breathability following their debut against Creighton earlier this season.
Heavy rain showers could add as much as 15 pounds per uniform. Fortunately, there is no rain expected in the Saturday forecast for October 26th at 7:00 pm match. Though, if the coming winter storm forecasted to hit Denver Sunday through Tuesday comes early, all hell could break loose.
