Charleston Battery Soccer Club has added Mercedes- Benz Vans, LLC (MBV) as the organization’s founding partner.
The partnership includes signage at the youth facilities and MUSC Health Stadium, special opportunities for Mercedes-Benz Vans employees, and use of the youth facility for corporate events and functions. Charleston Battery Youth Soccer Club will use the funds from the sponsorship to make improvements to its facilities in Summerville, Daniel Island and future site locations.
“We’re very excited about the partnership with Mercedes-Benz Vans,” said Charleston Battery chairman Eric Bowman. “The founding partnership will allow us to make much-needed upgrades to our youth facilities all over Charleston which will provide a better overall experience for young players in the area. We’ve been big proponents of supporting local business since the professional Club started in 1993 and we’re thrilled to be able to continue that with the youth club.”
