The Seattle Sounders, a professional soccer team sponsored by Microsoft, will wear Gears of War 4-themed jerseys during its matchup against the LA Galaxy this weekend.

The team's Twitter account shared an image of the jerseys today. Take a look:

This isn't the first time the Sounders have worn special jerseys themed around a Microsoft game, as the side wore Halo 5: Guardians jerseys last year. Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen is one of the club's owners.

"For the second-straight year, we've worked closely with Xbox to alter the primary partner mark on the front of our jerseys and create a fun, engaging initiative," Sounders FC Owner Adrian Hanauer said in a statement. "We always enjoy collaborating with Xbox to find the best ways to integrate our brands together, and we're excited to have another limited edition jersey to commemorate this campaign for fans of Sounders FC and Gears of War."

The Sounders will wear these jerseys again during its regular season finale on October 23. Microsoft is going big for this game, as it will let fans play Gears of War 4 at CenturyLink field, while there will be other "matchday activations" as well. Additionally, fans who buy a Pacific Blue jersey from the stadium's pro shop on October 23 can have the Gears of War 4 mark added to it.

This is only available at the stadium's pro shop and only for the game on October 23. More details about the gameday festivities will be announced later.
