Cleveland Guardians become the newest team to announce jersey patch

Marathon's new Endurance logo will be visible on the sleeve of Cleveland Guardians jerseys.

The Major League Baseball (MLB) team, Cleveland Guardians have partnered up with the retail brand of Marathon Petroleum, Marathon.

In this agreement, Marathon has been named the jersey patch sponsor of the Guardians and the entity’s new Endurance logo will be visible on the sleeve of the team jerseys. The association between the two parties involved will go on until the 2026 season.

The new collaboration is followed by Marathon being the corporate partner of the MLB side since 2021. The partnership also includes Marathon’s logo being showcased on the first-base side of Progressive Field along with the continued home plate signage.

Brian Partee, Marathon’s Senior Vice President of Global Clean Products, said, “With our Ohio roots and just over a decade separating our founding’s, we think it’s fitting to be the Cleveland Guardians inaugural jersey patch sponsor. 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.”

Brian Barren, Cleveland Guardians, President of Business, said, “We look forward to expanding our relationship with Marathon as our inaugural jersey patch partner. When we started to look for a partner to don 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.”
