"Ahead of the 2022 Major League Soccer season we found ourselves in the market for a new front-of-shirt partner who would align with our club’s core values, progress our business, and elevate our fan experience. To achieve this, we needed an agency partner that could not only assist us by quickly generating qualified leads, but also one that could provide buy-side expertise to best position the offering in emerging categories. We found exactly that in Allied Sports – and they delivered the most meaningful partnership in our club’s storied history."
