NC Courage and North Carolina FC Players Head up #SponsorToGoWeek to Help Club Partners

April 14, 2020 - United Soccer League Championship (USL) - North Carolina FC News Release

Cary, NC - North Carolina Courage and North Carolina FC players are offering giveaways to fans willing to participate in #SponsorToGoWeek to help North Carolina Football Club restaurant partners. Players of both the Courage and NCFC formed the idea after brainstorming ways to support key restaurant partners that assist the North Carolina Football Club all season long.

"We have to eat, so why not support the restaurants that give so much to us," said NC Courage midfielder Cari Roccaro. "Something as simple as buying a gift card or ordering a meal to-go means a lot to these restaurants during this time."

Roccaro is one of the NC Courage players offering a giveaway to anyone who orders to-go or buys a gift card from North Carolina Football Club partners between April 15-22.
