The team will sport a jersey patch for the first time in its history.

July 05, 2023

The Marathon retail brand announced it will be featured on the Cleveland Guardians team jerseys. The new patch, featuring Marathon’s Endurance logo, will be on the sleeve of the Guardians jerseys through the end of the 2026 season.

Marathon’s new Endurance logo will be seen across all MLB markets as the Ohio-based team, a corporate partner of Marathon’s since 2021, travels the country, aligning with Marathon brand’s national sponsorship strategy.

“With our Ohio roots and just over a decade separating our foundings, we think it's fitting to be the Cleveland Guardians’ inaugural jersey patch sponsor,” said Brian Partee, Marathon’s senior vice president of global clean products. “While we can both be proud of our past, it’s the future we’re most excited about, including this partnership. As a bonus, many of our employees and customers are generational and passionate fans of the celebrated ball club.”

In addition to the sleeve, the Endurance logo will also be featured on the first-base side of Progressive Field and the continuation of home plate signage. Also, as part of the agreement, Marathon will be featured on two jersey fan giveaways for the 2024-2026 seasons.

“We look forward to expanding our relationship with Marathon as our inaugural jersey patch partner,” said Cleveland Guardians President of Business Brian Barren. “When we started to look for a partner to put on our jersey, we knew we wanted an Ohio-based brand that was recognizable to our fans and had been a part of the northeast Ohio community for as long, if not longer than we have. Marathon checked all those boxes, putting down Ohio roots as far back as 1887, and we look forward to partnering with them in our community and with our fans for years to come.”

 The Cleveland Guardians became the 12th MLB team to sport a jersey patch. MLB started allowing the patches this season. Love’s Travel Stops is the jersey sponsor of the NBA’s Oklahoma City Thunder.
