LANSING, Mich. – Lansing Ignite FC unveiled its inaugural jersey sponsor on Tuesday as the club announced a multi-year contract with LAFCU, a credit union serving nearly 65,000 members across the state of Michigan. The partnership between the two will run through the 2023 season.
“As an organization, Lansing Ignite FC strives to support and grow our local communities and businesses, and this partnership with LAFCU furthers those efforts,” Ignite FC President Nick Grueser said. “It’s important to us that LAFCU is locally headquartered, and we believe that LAFCU is an amazing fit because its mission to serve the communities in which it operates in is exactly what we want in a partner.”
To celebrate its partnership with LAFCU, Ignite FC has created an enter-to-win jersey giveaway ahead of the club’s League One home opener on April 13 and will host a jersey unveiling party for fans to attend in March. Details for the jersey unveiling party will be announced at a later date, while supporters can enter for a chance to win an LIFC jersey via lansingignite.com.
"LAFCU was an early believer and took an active role from the very beginning to help bring Lansing Ignite FC to the area and attract people from across the state," said LAFCU CEO Pat Spyke. "LAFCU has a long track record of supporting initiatives to make Lansing a better community for everyone and stepping up to be the official jersey sponsor seemed like a great way to demonstrate our commitment."
