CARY, N.C. - North Carolina FC today announced EmergeOrtho as the official team physicians and new front of kit partner. The multiyear partnership will deliver comprehensive medical coverage to players, coaches, and staff, and will help amplify EmergeOrtho's commitment to making a positive impact in the community.

Effective this month, EmergeOrtho will become the official team physician, orthopedic urgent care, and physical therapy provider of North Carolina FC and affiliate North Carolina Courage of the NWSL, and the official orthopedic provider of NCFC.

"This marks a significant milestone for our organization as we embark on a promising partnership with EmergeOrtho. This collaboration is grounded in a shared commitment to enhancing the well-being of our players and the broader community. EmergeOrtho brings invaluable expertise to prioritize our players' health, ensuring they receive top-tier medical care. This partnership fosters deep connections that contribute to the growth and vitality of the Triangle area. We are proud to collaborate with EmergeOrtho, recognizing the immense potential and value they see in North Carolina FC," said North Carolina FC Chief Operating Officer Ralph Vuono.

"We are excited to partner with NCFC and NC Courage, two winning teams in a professional sport that is exploding in popularity. As the official team physicians and orthopedic providers, we are confident we can help NCFC and NC Courage continue their success on the field just as our winning team at EmergeOrtho has helped patients in our communities for over 70 years live healthier, more active lives both on and off the field," said Dr. David Musante, President, EmergeOrtho-Triangle Region.

EmergeOrtho will display on the front of both the primary and secondary NCFC kits as well as the team's warm-up tops. The new look will debut on May 14, when NCFC hosts Loudoun United FC. Fans who have already purchased a 2024 jersey can get the EmergeOrtho logo added free of charge at the Northeast merchandise stand next to the box office during any future home match later this season.

In a joint community initiative, 10% of revenue from all NCFC jersey sales will go to the EmergeOrtho Charitable Fund, giving fans the unique opportunity to support the partnership and make an impact on the communities in which they live. The fund is dedicated to supporting local initiatives aimed at promoting health, wellness, and sportsmanship targeting the residents of North Carolina. Visit the fund's webpage for more information.
