Leidos confirmed as D.C. United jersey (and presenting) sponsor

D.C. United confirmed today the rumor that Leidos, the D.C.-area government contractor, will be the new jersey sponsor.

D.C. United announced today that Leidos, the government contractor whose name appeared last week as the rumored jersey sponsor, will be a presenting sponsor. This includes the Leidos logo on D.C. United's jerseys, as well as the logo being displayed throughout RFK Stadium and United's promotional material. The deal is for three to five years, with Leidos the likely holder of the option.

Leidos chief executive officer John Jumper has this to say about the deal

"Soccer is a growing, global sport and we are a growing company with our eyes on the future. This sponsorship will help enable us to get exposure not only locally, but throughout the country and internationally."

The Leidos logo is in all white on the D.C. United primary jersey, as well as on the goalkeeping jersey; the mockups that some of our commentors made were right on the mark.  Fans who have already purchased the new jersey without the logo can go to the team store and have it applied free of charge. However, we have not yet seen how the team will apply the logo to the secondary jersey, which has white as its dominant color. I would assume it would be in the standard purple of the Leidos logo, but we will not know for sure until March 8 at the earliest, when jerseys with the logo will go on sale at the D.C. United team store. UPDATE: From Leidos' website about their partnershipwith D.C. United, there is an image at the very bottom of the D.C. United secondary jersey, with the Leidos logo in all black.

What do you think of the new sponsor and how the logo looks on the jerseys?
