St. David’s HealthCare becomes Austin FC’s first corporate sponsor

Austin-based St. David’s HealthCare has become the first major sponsorship for Major League Soccer expansion club Austin FC.

The health care provider will be the club’s first corporate partner and have its branding on the club’s training facility and practice jerseys.

“We are proud that this organisation, which serves and employs thousands in our community, has chosen to partner with our club,” said Anthony Precourt, Austin FC chairman and chief executive. “St. David’s HealthCare will be key to providing high-quality medical care for our players while also creating a safe environment at all matches and events for our stadium guests.”

St. David’s will also be the on-site healthcare provider for the club during home matches. Austin FC is scheduled to begin MLS play in 2021.
