GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Grand Rapids Football Club is proud to announce that Founders Brewing Company will become a club sponsor for the 2019 NPSL and UWS seasons. The sponsorship will see the Founders logo emblazoned on the back of both the men’s and women’s jerseys for the 2019 campaign, as well as help the club announce the Solid Gold Man/Woman of the Match and Founders Fan of the Match at the conclusion of every game. Several Founders beers, including All Day IPA and Solid Gold, will be available at Houseman Field during all Mens regular season matches. The club will also host the annual Uniform Unveiling and End of Season Awards nights in the Centennial Room at Founders Taproom.
“We’re thrilled to be a part of the GRFC’s 2019 season,” said Founders President and Co-Founder, Dave Engbers. “GRFC is an awesome program that brings sportsmanship and friendly competition to Grand Rapids. What pairs better with that than beer?”
GRFC President Matt Roberts commented “We are very excited to have Founders come on board as a sponsor for the 2019 season”. We have worked hard behind the scenes to create a marketing agreement that works for both parties and we want to thank the Founders staff for seeing the value in working with our club for the 2019 NPSL and UWS seasons.”
