Wells Fargo partners with D.C. United   WASHINGTON – D.C. United and Wells Fargo are proud to announce a sponsorship agreement that will combine the best of both the soccer team’s and the national financial service company’s commitments to the community and to improving children’s lives through soccer. The collaboration is highlighted by Saves for United Soccer Club, a program that will turn the standout performances of Black-and-Red goalkeepers into benefits for the United Soccer Club program operated by the D.C. United Foundation. “We are thrilled to team up with Wells Fargo,” said D.C. United Chief Revenue Officer Mike Schoenbrun. “This is a fantastic collaboration that engages the club, our players, fans and the community. Thanks to Wells Fargo, the hundreds of children that participate in the United Soccer Club, the D.C. United Foundation’s signature program, will benefit from additional resources and an improved experience.”    Beginning with the Black-and-Red’s upcoming match vs. Philadelphia on July 26 through the remainder of the 2015 season, Wells Fargo will donate $100 to United Soccer Club for every save made by a D.C. United goalkeeper. The number of saves will be tracked live on dcunited.com, with updated totals announced on the team’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts after each match. Wells Fargo will announce the final donation amount during a presentation at D.C. United’s final regular season home match on October 18 vs. the Chicago Fire. The proceeds from Saves for United Soccer Club will help fund equipment, transportation, food and drink costs. United Soccer Club enrolled close to 500 children in the program in the spring of 2015, teaching participants the importance of a healthy lifestyle through physical activity and proper nutrition, as well as life skills that are beneficial on and off the field. United Soccer Club employs the U.S. Soccer Foundation’s Soccer for Success curriculum. The program operates at 14 sites in and around Washington, D.C. “Wells Fargo is committed to improving lives and strengthening communities,” said Mike Golden, Wells Fargo President in Greater Washington, D.C. “Saves for United Soccer Club is an example of that commitment. This program will help children learn important life skills and create a healthy lifestyle. Wells Fargo is excited to join our customers, team members and D.C. United supporters as we cheer the Black-and-Red’s pursuit of a fifth MLS Cup.” As the official bank of Major League Soccer and presenting sponsor for the league’s annual MLS WORKS Community MVP Contest, Wells Fargo’s new sponsorship of D.C. United, its second MLS team deal, continues the company’s focus on developing relationships with soccer fans across the country. D.C.
