Under the agreement, Capri Sun will harness MLS intellectual property to foster connections with soccer fans across the country, including several grassroots extensions like youth soccer clinics throughout the United States. Capri Sun will also utilize select MLS players as part of their ongoing Capri Sun Kids vs. Pros campaign, and will feature MLS players on-pack during the “back to school” timeframe.

“We’re so pleased to partner with a premier property like MLS whose values are consistent with our own,” said Greg Guidotti, Senior Director of Refreshment Beverages for Kraft Foods. “Soccer is the first sport that many of us play as kids, and the sport teaches us the importance of teamwork, being active and pushing your own physical boundaries. MLS has played a seminal role in the growth and popularity of soccer across the U.S. – and bringing soccer to the forefront of sport. Several of our beverages, specifically Capri Sun, are found on the ‘sidelines’ of so many soccer matches. It’s honestly a natural fit for us.”

"We are excited to welcome Kraft Beverages to the MLS family," said David Wright, senior vice president of global sponsorship for MLS. "MLS’ grassroots extensions have become an important component to the growth of the League and Kraft Beverages has elected to take a leadership position within that ever-growing space. We look forward to partnering with Kraft Beverages for many years to come."
