Wide receiver Chad Owens joins Levelwear as Brand Ambassador for the 2017 CFL Season
TORONTO (June 29, 2017) – Levelwear, a premium sports athletic apparel brand, announced a multi-year partnership with the Canadian Football League’s Saskatchewan Roughriders today, commencing with the 2017 season. Levelwear holds licensing partnerships with some of the top global brands, including the NHL and NHLPA, NBA and NBPA, CFL and CFLPA, 75 US Colleges, Hockey Canada and various soccer properties around the world. This is the first corporate partnership the company has with an individual CFL franchise.
“We are excited to have Levelwear as a part of the team this season,” said Steve Mazurak, Roughrider VP, Sales and Corporate Partnerships. “They are a global licensor who also scores touchdowns in the on-trend athleisure category. We are very fortunate our fans enjoy our brand so much that many make wearing the Rider ‘S’ part of their daily lifestyle, with Levelwear pieces aligning perfectly.”
Fans will be able to purchase Levelwear gear in The Rider Store starting this weekend at the Canada Day home-opener game at Mosaic Stadium. Known for innovative design and treatment, each piece of apparel will be carefully-crafted by the Levelwear in-house design team to create quality merchandise for every fan.
To celebrate Canada Day, Levelwear will be providing a unique and engaging photo opportunity outside Mosaic Stadium. Roughly 1,200 fans will have a chance to participate in a living mosaic/collage. Fans can visit the pregame party for the chance to have their photo taken and the mosaic will be posted online at www.sport.levelwear.com
