Bruce Power has expanded its partnership with Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment to include Toronto FC and BMO Field.
“Soccer is the game of my youth and the game of the world, so I’m excited that Bruce Power is now part of the Toronto FC team of sponsors,” said Duncan Hawthorne, Bruce Power’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
Fans at this Saturday’s Major League Soccer home opener against the Portland Timbers will see Bruce Power signage throughout BMO Field, which is home to Canada’s national soccer team as well as the vastly popular Toronto FC, who routinely play before sell-out crowds of more than 20,000.
“We are very excited to partner with Bruce Power and assist with their grass roots soccer program,” said Toronto FC Senior Director of Business Operations, Paul Beirne. “Bruce Power has been a great partner with the Leafs and Raptors and we are happy to have them on board.”
In addition to stadium signage and other branding opportunities, Bruce Power and Toronto FC will team up to form a grassroots, community program called ‘Kick with the Pros’ that will see Toronto FC players help children develop their soccer skills. Look to www.brucepower.com and www.torontofc.ca for more details on this exciting new project as they develop.
Hailed as Canada’s national soccer pitch, BMO Field hosts more than 30 events annually. The stadium is owned by the City of Toronto and operated by Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment.
Since 2009, Bruce Power has been the electricity supplier of choice for the Air Canada Centre, home to the Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Raptors.
