Saint Louis Football Club’s (Saint Louis FC) fourth season kicks off on March 31, 2018 with the Electrical Connection as a major sponsor again. The revamped team will take the field at Toyota Stadium at World Wide Technology Soccer Park in Fenton, Mo. to play the Colorado Springs Switchbacks. Saint Louis FC will be wearing their familiar jerseys emblazoned with the Electrical Connection logo. The Electrical Connection will also be offering a free jersey giveaway for all home games at its web site: www.electricalconnection.org. The Electrical Connection is a partnership of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 1 and the St. Louis Chapter, National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA).
On March 8, 2018, Saint Louis FC introduced the 2018 team, its new head coach, Anthony Pulis, and its updated jerseys. “There is a tremendous energy generated by Saint Louis FC fans,” said Jim Curran, executive vice president, Electrical Connection. “Our partnership with the team builds on that excitement and helps us better engage our customers and connect the region to IBEW/NECA community building initiatives.”
For the third year in a row, Curran said the Electrical Connection will leverage the Saint Louis FC Partnership to raise money for the St. Francois County and Ferguson “Shop with a Cop” programs. The Electrical Connection will sponsor a July 14, 2018 “Christmas in July” game to raise money for the law enforcement trust building charities.
The Electrical Connection will be spotlighted not only on the jerseys but also field banners, scoreboard promotions and other signage at Toyota Stadium. In addition, the Electrical Connection is supporting the team with advertising on KPLR-TV broadcasts of the Saint Louis FC games.
“We appreciate all that the Electrical Connection does to support the team and connect Saint Louis FC with IBEW/NECA initiatives that build and sustain healthy community,” said Jim Kavanaugh, CEO, Saint Louis FC.
Saint Louis FC is playing 34 games this year, including 17 home games at Toyota Stadium in World Wide Technology Soccer Park. The park features a Biergarten, Corner Flag Hospitality Patios, a Fan Zone, space for tailgate parties, a Craft Beer Corner, and great food options. For game tickets, visit www.saintlouisfc.com
