Marathon Sports is an Ecuadorian based athletic company that distributes athletic equipment to sports teams founded in May 1988 by Rodrigo Ribadeinera. It currently provides uniforms to Ecuador and Bolivia. Their slogan is 'La piel de tu pais'. The company was founded in May 1988 by Rodrigo Ribadeinera with a vision for providing the utmost quality and a passion for sports. It first started as a sporting store chain for Ecuador, but in 1994, the Reebok expired. Marathon Sports then signed a contract with the Ecuadorian squad for an unknown sum of years. The first jersey design had a band of thick blue and red strips on the right shoulder reflecting the flag of Ecuador. After being close to qualify for their very first FIFA world cup in 1998, the F.E.F (Federacion Ecuatoriana de Futbol) decided to stick with the brand, releasing a design reflecting more of an Andean style.
