MLS extends Home Depot partnership until 2022

Major League Soccer has extended its partnership with Atlanta-based home improvement retailer Home Depot through the 2022 season.

As part of the deal, the two parties will collaborate on a digital brand campaign “that will highlight the league’s stars and the home improvement company’s home appliance product innovation from LG Electronics.”

Among the MLS stars taking part in the ‘Summer of Soccer’ campaign are Portland Timbers star Diego Valeri, LAFC striker Diego Rossi, Chicago Fire’s World Cup-winner Bastian Schweinsteiger, and Sporting Kansas City attacker Daniel Salloi.

Home Depot will also be a 2019 partner of the Campeones Cup, an annual match between the champions of MLS and Mexico’s Liga MX. This year’s event – which will pit Atlanta United against Tigres UANL or Club America – will take place on Aug. 14.

The Home Depot and MLS partnership dates back to 2008, while the company has also been a partner of the Mexican national team since 2003. Home Depot is also a sponsor locally of Atlanta United.
