Headphone brand JLab Audio has secured its largest partnership to date after it signed off on a deal with North America’s Major League Soccer (MLS).
Terms of the multi-year agreement were not fully disclosed, but it was confirmed that JLab Audio will now serve as the first-ever official audio partner of the MLS.
California-based JLab will also become an official partner of LA Galaxy and work with the MLS team to enhance the game-day audio experience for fans at the club’s StubHub Center.
The arrangement with LA Galaxy includes establishing a JLab branded DJ booth at the StubHub Center for fans to enjoy during the pre-game experience, as well as a presence on digital signage inside the venue during pre-match warm-ups.
To mark the partnership, JLab will offer fans a chance to win a special experience at the 2018 MLS All-Star Game. In addition, members the victorious team at this year’s All-Star Game will receive a yet-to-be released pair of Epic Sport Wireless Earbuds in an exclusive new colour.
