Lansing Uniform has been named the official shirt sponsor of Lansing United for the 2015 season.

The company was selected by a random drawing at an event held at Jimmy’s Pub in East Lansing Tuesday night.

Thirty balloons, which were blown up with one name of more than 30 participating sponsors inside, were placed around the restaurant and randomly popped. The company whose name was in the last balloon left was announced as the club’s uniform sponsor for the upcoming season.

Joined by head coach Eric Rudland and Sons of Ransom members, Lansing Uniform president Jim Downs said the unique event was a lot of fun for both his family and the company.

“Last year it was exciting to see what (the team) did and this year it should be just as fun,” said Downs, whose company specializes in apparel and accessories for police, fire and emergency services. “It will be fun to see my logo on the jersey for the year.”

“We are honored to have Lansing Uniform as our 2015 jersey sponsor,” Lansing United owner Jeremy Sampson said. “Lansing Uniform is a staple in the mid-Michigan community and we will be proud to wear their logo this season.”

The Lansing Uniform logo will be featured on both of Lansing United’s game jerseys and the club’s practice apparel.
