FC Dallas unveil AdvoCare as first-ever jersey sponsor
Welcome to the club, FC Dallas.
The Frisco, Texas-based side is the latest MLS team to introduce a sponsor to their jersey fronts with AdvoCare becoming the first corporate partner ever to grace the team's kits. The new kits will make their debut on July 28 when FC Dallas host the MLS Cup champion LA Galaxy.
AdvoCare, which also sponsors NASCAR and college football's Independence Bowl, will appear on all FC Dallas team gear, including on the academy and youth team levels.
At a Wednesday press conference to unveil the partnership, AdvoCare CEO Richard Wright revealed that the deal will run through the end of the 2015 season. AdvoCare was already a partner of FC Dallas for more than 10 years.
The health and wellness company based in Plano, Texas, offers nutrition, weight loss, energy and sports performance products. It counts NFL star quarterback Drew Brees as its national spokesman.
The deal caps a year-long search by FC Dallas for a jersey partner and leaves just three MLS clubs with jersey sponsor opportunities: Colorado Rapids, San Jose Earthquakes and Sporting Kansas City.
