As Major League Soccer (MLS) kicks-off its 2007 season, XanGo LLC, the first-ever jersey sponsor of U.S. pro soccer team, today launched an interactive Web site to support the sport's growing popularity. XANGOSOCCER.COM gives budding soccer fans the history, rules and terminology of the world's most popular sport.
XANGO, a global nutritionals leader, announced its landmark sponsorship of MLS' Real Salt Lake franchise in November 2006, making it the first company to sponsor the jersey-front of a major-league U.S. professional sports team.
"XANGO loves soccer. We're big fans of this great game and our home team Real Salt Lake," said XANGO Chief Marketing Officer Gordon Morton. "XANGOSOCCER.COM is dedicated to helping fans understand and follow the game of soccer. Whether you're a parent with kids starting their young soccer careers or you're looking to brush up on the rules of the game, our Web site will serve as your online soccer resource."
