Continental Tire is adding to its well-rounded soccer platform by supporting North Carolina FC (NCFC) and North Carolina Courage. The Continental logo will appear on the back of both men’s and women’s jerseys and in addition, Continental Tire will receive in-stadium exposure at the team’s home stadium, WakeMed Soccer Park located in Cary, North Carolina.
“We’re proud to add the North Carolina Football Club’s men’s and women’s teams to our robust soccer platform,” said Travis Roffler, director of marketing for Continental Tire. “The growth of soccer in the U.S. has been phenomenal and we’re pleased to continue growing our program with the addition of a professional club right in our own backyard.”
The sponsorship is in addition to Continental Tire’s long-standing partnership with Major League Soccer (MLS) and U.S. Soccer as an official partner and the official tire. As soccer continues to grow in the U.S., so does Continental Tire’s commitment to the sport and its passionate fans.
“We are proud to be partnering with such a nationally recognizable brand as Continental Tire,” said Curt Johnson, North Carolina Football Club president and general manager. “As we continue to grow as a brand and an organization, working toward our goal of providing the highest level of men’s and women’s professional soccer in North Carolina, we feel that our core values align with theirs. Continental Tire has been a strong affiliate of our organization in the past, and we are excited about the increased role they have taken on for the 2017 season.”
The 2017 season begins March 25th. For a full schedule, or to purchase tickets, visit northcarolinafc.com.
