Sounders FC and Xbox have unveiled brand new Halo 5: Guardians themed jerseys that the club is wearing for Sunday’s match vs. the LA Galaxy on the Xbox Pitch at CenturyLink Field (6:30 p.m. PT ). In coordination with Xbox, Sunday’s match and the preceding week will feature a bunch of Halo 5: Guardians-inspired festivities, including appearances from Master Chief, Agent Locke, and the iconic Warthog, as well as giveaways at the stadium on match day.
The initiative marks the first time an MLS club has altered its jerseys for any match mid-season, as well as the first time Sounders FC has worn anything other than Rave Green jerseys for an MLS regular season home fixture. The new Halo 5: Guardians-inspired jerseys utilize Sounders FC’s Pitch Black third kits. During warmups, Sounders FC players are also wearing limited edition pre-match training tops, custom-made with Sounders FC and Halo 5: Guardians branding. Sunday’s match is the only opportunity that fans have to buy this one-of-a-kind jersey, as a limited supply of 200 are available for purchase at the CenturyLink Field Pro Shop.
Twenty thousand fans at CenturyLink Field on Sunday are set to receive Halo 5: Guardians and Sounders FC commemorative t-shirts that are being staged throughout the stadium. Those at the stadium on Sunday also have the chance to see Halo 5: Guardians come to life, as a life-sized Halo Warthog vehicle will be part of the celebration, and characters the Master Chief and Agent Locke will be on-site for fans to take pictures and interact with throughout Sunday’s match. Additionally, a scavenger hunt is taking place at halftime – where the Master Chief and Agent Locke will be planted within CenturyLink Field concourses, encouraging fans to find them for the opportunity to win a Sounders FC / Halo 5 Guardians kit.
I’m desperate for one of these, but with only 200 available it looks like I’ll be missing out!
