During the last Premier League season, Leicester City made history by winning the league out of nowhere. Naturally, the Leicester players enjoyed the crazy exposure and some of them are now turning that success into endorsement contracts.

Wes Morgan is 32-years old and the captain of the soccer club. While playing for the club, Morgan also has another big contract to honor as of Thursday morning – a contract to be spokesman for Captain Morgan rum.

Out of the five rules listed, the best two are easily 8.2 and 9.1:

8.2 – Prior to ordering the beverages from the outlet, Wes Morgan shal turn to face the patrons, extend his arms to form the shape of a “Y” and shout, “There’s only one Captain Morgan!”

9.1 – Wes Morgan shall wear the Captain Morgan… parties should an appropriate opportunity present itself during the…

A couple notes – first, 8.2 is hilarious, but would probably also get tiresome after a while.

Second, it’s sad that 9.1 is partially covered up, but we can assume that that it means he has to wear the Captain Morgan costume based on the section 9 header. Once again this rule is hilarious, but would probably get old after a while.



Oddly enough, this isn’t Morgan’s first experience with Captain Morgan. Since he’s affectionately referred to as “Captain Morgan,” the rum brand honored him with a custom bottle back in May.



At the time, Captain Morgan’s senior brand manager Rhys Love said the limited edition bottle has been created.

“The special limited edition bottle features the Jamaican international star dressed as Captain Morgan in royal blue and white robes to match Leicester City’s home kit. Captain’s [sic] lead by example and we are thrilled to have one of the greatest captains of recent times, who coincidentally shares our name, become the center of a historic sporting moment.” 

“We have created a limited edition Captain ‘Wes’ Morgan bottle to celebrate his incredible title win triumph as the club’s skipper. We salute Leicester City and their own Captain Morgan.”

Leicester isn’t experiencing the same success this season, as they’re 14th in the table with just 16 points through 16 matches, just four points clear of the relegation zone.
