LAFC enters multi-year partnership with Chevron

LAFC has secured a multi-year partnership with energy company Chevron ahead of the kickoff of its second MLS season this coming weekend. Chevron becomes the club’s “Official Energy Partner” and in addition to the club partnership will become the presenting sponsor of two soccer refurbishments per year in Southern California.

The two refurbishments will take place at local LA-area schools and involve the placement of a full-sized grass soccer pitch as well as updated equipment for the selected facility.

In addition, The Chevron Soccer Academy, which has previously hosted events in Fresno part of California’s Central Valley region, will be expanded to Southern California in partnership with LAFC.

“We are thrilled to welcome Chevron to the Black & Gold family,” LAFC president and owner, Tom Penn, said. “Chevron shares in our Club’s ambition to inspire, develop and elevate the Southern California community. We look forward to working with Chevron to be a force for good in Los Angeles.”

The partnership will also include additional community-focused programs, co-branded digital content and signage at LAFC home matches played at the Banc of California Stadium.
