LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Europe’s No. 1 sports nutrition provider, Myprotein, is the latest business to sign on with Louisville City FC as 2016 season official nutritional partner.
Based less than an hour between Premier League giants Manchester United and Liverpool in Cheshire, England, Myprotein has grown from an emerging sports nutrition provider to become Europe’s leading online nutritional supplier, with recent expansion into the U.S. and other countries.
“We’re thrilled to have partnered with Louisville City FC,” Myprotein team sponsorship manager Max Holland said. “It’s a young club with a fantastic future, and ambitions of going from strength to strength; just like ourselves at Myprotein. We are in the process of opening new facilities in Kentucky and are proud to be building relationships with the local community. We’re excited to welcome Louisville City FC to the Myprotein family as our very first sports team in the U.S., and can’t wait to begin our journey with the club and its supporters.”
Myprotein, official sport nutrition brand of English League Championship’s Burnley FC and now Louisville City FC, intends to become the biggest sports nutrition brand in the world by 2020. U.S. expansion will create additional jobs and opportunity in Kentucky as the first Myprotein product warehouse is set to open in Shepherdsville in 2016.
“It’s exciting to partner with Myprotein, especially considering the company’s international footprint and reputation within the game of soccer,” Louisville City FC director of corporate partnerships and community relations Jason Eiche said. “This is a partnership that separates us from every other club in our league and, really, within the U.S. We look forward to a long-term partnership and believe that Myprotein’s top quality product offerings will be extremely beneficial to our athletes as they train and compete at the highest level.”
Per Club policy, the terms of partner agreements are not disclosed.
