Herbalife Nutrition Named Official Sports Nutrition Partner of 2019 International Champions Cup
“As soccer fans ourselves, we’re excited to help bring the International Champions Cup to fans all over the world. It’s especially exciting to have matches played in China, where millions of fans will have an opportunity to cheer on some of the world’s premier soccer teams,” said Michael Johnson, CEO of Herbalife Nutrition. “The teams and players participating in ICC matches are competing at the highest level of the sport, so you know that conditioning, nutrition and hydration are key factors to their success.”
Top soccer teams from around the world, including Juventus, Manchester United, Arsenal, FC Bayern and Tottenham Hotspur will have access to the Herbalife Nutrition NSF certified for sports hydration and nutrition products at all tournament matches. The Women’s International Champions Cup, starting August 15 in Cary, North Carolina, will also benefit from Herbalife Nutrition products and will feature company-sponsored Atletico de Madrid Women’s soccer club, as well as the North Carolina Courage, Lyon and Manchester City.
“It’s important for us at Relevent Sports Group to find global partners who share our vision for the growth of soccer,” said Aaron Ryan, Chief Operating Officer of Relevent Sports Group. “Herbalife Nutrition has a long history of supporting soccer, so it was a natural fit to bring them on as the sports nutrition provider for the International Champions Cup.”
In addition to festivities surrounding the matches, Herbalife Nutrition and the ICC will partner with local charitable organizations to engage with local community youth by hosting player meet-and-greets, skills clinics and donation of seats to the games.
