Swansea lands Events DC as FA Cup sponsor

Championship football club Swansea City has unveiled Events DC, the official convention and sports authority for Washington, DC, as its first-ever sleeve sponsor for the FA Cup competition.

Events DC’s branding will feature on the left sleeve of Swansea’s shirts for the duration of the Welsh club’s 2018-19 FA Cup campaign, which begins tomorrow (Saturday) with a trip to Aston Villa.

Events DC operates and manages RFK Stadium, the former home of Major League Soccer franchise DC United. Jason Levien is the co-owner of both DC United and Swansea.

Gregory A. O’Dell, president and chief executive of Events DC, said: “With a prestigious history of hosting international soccer matches in Washington, DC, Events DC is pleased to be the presenting sponsor of Swansea City’s inaugural FA cup sleeve.

“This strategic partnership with the Swans reinforces the importance of international soccer and their devoted fans in our city – especially as we remain a finalist host city for the Fifa World Cup 2026. DC is a world-class sports city and this global platform will create global visibility to soccer fans around the world.”
