A Natural Partnership
A partnership between the Oregon-born beef jerky brand and the state’s most dynamic professional sports team, which embarks on its ninth season in Major League Soccer in 2019 after advancing to its second MLS Cup in four seasons in 2018, seemed like a natural fit to Robert Leary, Old Trapper’s Director of Marketing and Communications.
“Old Trapper is the northwest’s most popular and best-selling beef jerky brand,” Leary said. “We accomplished this through a relentless commitment to quality as well as a fun and accessible brand identity as exemplified by the Old Trapper character himself. When we began to think about expanding our marketing into professional sports, we looked directly to the Portland Timbers. Major League Soccer is growing so quickly that it just made sense to partner up with our local team!
“Their commitment to a championship-level product and the larger fan experience is second to none, and closely mirrors our own business philosophy. Plus, they are champions and demand the best jerky anywhere — partnering with fellow champions, in MLS and Beef Jerky, was the smart play for all of us!”
