PHOENIX, Arizona (Friday, December 18) – Phoenix Rising FC has agreed to a new, multi-year contract with Carvana, which will remain the jersey sponsor of the two-time Western Conference Champions through the 2023 season, the club announced today.
“Carvana has been an excellent partner for Phoenix Rising FC the past three seasons,” said Rising GM Bobby Dulle. “We’re proud to wear the logo of another emerging, Arizona-based brand on our jerseys. I look forward to many more years of growing alongside Carvana.”
The leading online auto retailer first appeared on the front of Rising’s jerseys for the 2018 season-opening match vs. Orange County SC on Saturday, March 17. The club has won two USL Western Conference Championships and the 2019 USL Regular Season Title since then, posting a record of 58-18-17 and a winning percentage of 72% in USL play.
"Phoenix Rising FC has made its mark with some unforgettable seasons, quickly becoming one of the premier teams in the USL," said Ryan Keeton, Carvana co-founder and chief brand officer. "We feel fortunate to continue partnering with another Arizona-headquartered organization that shares our dedication to creating the exceptional."
The partnership between Carvana and Phoenix Rising FC includes a number of activations and collaborations. In addition to the jersey, Carvana will continue to be a presence within the recently-announced stadium at Wild Horse Pass. Carvana will be featured on prominent signage and serve as host of the Carvana Corner seat upgrade each match.
Rising’s 2020 kits featuring the Carvana logo will be unveiled in early 2021.
