BreakingT to Launch MLSPA-Licensed Products

BreakingT to Launch MLSPA-Licensed Products

The partnership will use social data to create items based on trending MLSPA players.

The Major League Soccer Players Association and BreakingT have inked a licensing deal to produce merchandise featuring members of the MLSPA.

 The deal is the first of its kind for the MLSPA. It will leverage BreakingT’s social data-informed approach to identify MLS player accomplishments and trends. Collected data will then be used to develop merchandise for the public. Data collection will start with the end of the regular season and the beginning of the 2019 MLS Cup Playoffs.

“What BreakingT does with micro-moment and hot-market merchandise has never been done before with MLS players,” says Alex Welsh, chief executive officer, BreakingT. “And we’re thrilled to serve MLS fans and drive incremental revenue for the Players Association.”

 BreakingT’s MLSPA-licensed products hit the market immediately and can be purchased online at, Bleacher Report and Amazon.

 REP Worldwide manages the MLSPA's group marketing and licensing program.
