Galaxy, Saunders, Aviata and the MLS CUP Final

Josh Saunders

Last weekend, LA Galaxy knocked off RSL to reach MLS Cup 2011 and with it, a new goalkeeper glove will be on display in the showcase game! I am good friends with the guys who started the company, so I took the opportunity to reach out to Aviata Sports in order to give you goalkeepers some details on what are quickly becoming the hottest gloves on the market! Also, check out the exclusive deal we struck to help you save, if you decide to pick up a pair! (located at the bottom of the page)

With an exciting win over RSL in the Western Conference Finals and some key saves by Josh Saunders, Aviata Sports goalkeeping finds itself in the MLS CUP final in their first year of MLS. The Aviata team will be watching with great anticipation and pride as their A-Team member, Josh Saunders, will be wearing his signature American flag Aviata gloves against the Houston Dynamo this coming November 20th at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA. Josh, who found himself stepping in to cover for injured 2010 MLS Keeper of the Year Donovan Ricketts, seized the opportunity and has not looked back since securing the no.1 spot on the LA Galaxy starting eleven.

“We are so proud of what Josh (Saunders) has accomplished this year. He had huge shoes to fill and he has done it without missing a beat. We could not ask for a better keeper but more importantly person, representing our gloves on and off the field.” Says Aviata Co-Founder Trevor Stiles. “We wish J (Josh) the absolute best in the game and know he will do what he does best. Show up every game day like a true professional and be ready to battle till the end.”

  1. Hi Brian:
    Could you please how do those gloves fit compare to Adidas fingersaves? Especially length wise.I usually wear a 9 in Adidas and 10 in puma. I am really interested but there is no where I can try them on.

    • The Aviata team will follow-up with a response for you on this one!

    • Hi Kai,
      where about do you live? Perhaps there is a store nearby that carries Aviata. I would we fit closer to a size 10 puma. If you are going for a model without finger protection I would go down to a 9, if you chose a model with FP I would go to a 10. feel free to email me personally at [email protected] to discuss more. I hope this finds you well
