MOST COMMENTED

[SOCCER BUSINESS] FC Dallas reached an agreement with Chase, which becomes a signature partner, focusing on the MLS club's youth programs. The deal marks the bank’s first sports sponsorship in the DFW Metroplex and its first partnership with an MLS club.

The first Chase clinic for local children who might otherwise never get the opportunity was held on Saturday. Following the clinic, Chase treated the participants and their families to the FC Dallas match against Colorado at Toyota Stadium.

“We’ve built our youth development system on a foundation beyond just soccer skills,” said FC Dallas president Dan Hunt in a statement. “We work daily on instilling integrity, work ethic, sportsmanship, honor and respect. We want to give kids the support they need to succeed in any endeavor. We’re proud of the 12 players from our youth system, who have gone on to sign with our professional team, but we’re equally proud of the hundreds who have gone on to college and anticipate continuing to help boost thousands more towards their very bright futures. We are excited to find a partner in Chase that shares our community values and wants to join us in providing fresh opportunities for our youth.”

Chase will be the presenting partner of FC Dallas Youth and FC Dallas Youth tryouts, as well the FC Dallas college prep. More than 100 players from FC Dallas Youth, FC Dallas ECNL and FC Dallas Academy committed to attend college in the fall, and 90 percent of them plan on continuing their soccer careers at the collegiate level.

“We are fans of FC Dallas and the great work the club does with the young people of metropolitan Dallas and Fort Worth,” said Jay Clingman, president of Chase in Dallas. “We are partnering with an organization that shares our commitment to building a stronger community and providing greater opportunity for our kids.”
