The Galaxy has reached an agreement with Herbalife Nutrition on a multi-million dollar, multi-year sponsorship renewal that will keep the dietary supplement company on the front of the team jersey. According to the Sports Business Journal, the five-year extension is worth more than $7 million per season, compared to $4.4 million per year for the 10-year contract that expires this season.
The Galaxy’s partnership with Herbalife dates back to 2005, making it the longest running jersey sponsorship deal in professional team sports history in the United States.
The company logo will continue to appear on the chest of primary and secondary team kits, in all general training and club apparel, on academy and Galaxy II shirts, and on select retail, according to the company.
Herbalife will also provide the club with dedicated dietitians and personalized player nutrition programs.
As part of the extension, an additional $1.25 million will be donated to the Joint Partnership Fund, which promotes football, healthy living and nutrition education in underserved communities. Over the past decade, the Galaxy and Herbalife claim to have given more than $2.5 million to global communities in need.
