Captain's Armband Design Contest

The Portland Timbers are asking you the fans to design a Timbers branded captain’s armband that will be worn by captain Jack Jewsbury (and any other acting captain) for the remainder of the 2011 season. Fans can submit designs that will be worn with the primary kit (green) and secondary kit (red) using the template below. The top designs will be submitted to Timbers soccer staff and Jewsbury who will choose the two winning designs.

All entries must be submitted by August 11 at 5 p.m. (PT).

How it works?

  • Download the Captains Armband template from the pdf HERE. An eps version for digital entries can be downloaded HERE.
     
  • Judging will be based on originality, creativity and the ability to express the Portland Timbers brand in a positive manner. Two winning designs will be chosen – one for the primary kit and one for the secondary kit.

    • The design will be printed on a black armband (pictured below)
    • The primary kit armband may only use ponderosa, moss and white
    • The secondary kit armband may only use red and white
    • The adidas logo will be included in the final design; you do not have to include it as part of your submission
    • Given the small size of the armband, we do not recommend including small details as they will not be legible.
    • You may submit designs for both kits or for just one
