Online Auto Retailer Anchors Uniform Sponsorship with Arizona’s Only Pro Soccer Club, Brings New Fan Experiences to Newly Relocated Stadium
PHOENIX–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Carvana, an industry pioneer for buying and selling used cars online, is partnering with USL Championship team, Phoenix Rising FC, as the team relocates to a brand new location in 2023, right in the heart of Phoenix, Arizona. Carvana has been Rising’s front-of-kit sponsor since 2018, marking the sixth season the brand has partnered with the Valley-based, two-time Western Conference Champions.
“Carvana has been a vital partner to Phoenix Rising for the past five seasons,” said Rising President Bobby Dulle. “Our front-of-jersey sponsor has helped the club reach milestones on the pitch and off. We’ve been proud to partner with an industry pioneer like Carvana on many important community initiatives since 2018. We look forward to building on those efforts again this season.”
In addition to the brand’s kit sponsorship, Carvana’s long-standing partnership with Rising includes a number of collaborative activations across the season. In 2023, as the club relocates to a brand new location minutes away from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, Carvana will continue to be a presence onsite and continue to host the Carvana Corner VIP section at each match. Additionally, this year, Carvana customers in Arizona who choose home delivery or elect to pick up their vehicle at one of Carvana’s two signature Car Vending Machines in the Valley of the Sun can scan a QR code at pickup and be entered to win seating at the coveted Carvana Corner.
