Franklin, TN - Tennessee Soccer Club has formed a multi-year partnership with Delek US Holdings, a diversified downstream energy company headquartered in Brentwood.
“We are proud to have Delek, a Fortune 500 company with roots in Brentwood, as one of our flagship partners,” said Taylor Johnson, TSC Director of Club Operations & Development. “In our initial talks with Tony (Tony McLarty, Delek Director of Community Relations) and his team, we quickly learned that both organizations shared in their commitment to building and inspiring the community. Delek’s reputation for giving back and collaborating with other organizations to positively impact our community is one we continue to try and create at our club. We are thrilled to work alongside them and be a force for good in Middle Tennessee.”
Delek has been a longtime supporter of youth soccer in this region, partnering with Nashville FC and HYSA several years ago. Delek also has shown support to other clubs in the area and provided opportunity through soccer to youth at Boys and Girls Clubs. Through this newly formed partnership, Delek will assist TSC in its mission to grow and enhance the soccer community of Middle Tennessee by providing more opportunities for players to develop and play across all levels of the game.
“We are proud to strengthen our support of the youth soccer community of Middle Tennessee,” said Tony McLarty, Delek Director of Community Relations. “We believe in all that Tennessee Soccer Club is trying to achieve and are pleased to support them in their mission.”
The partnership promises to deliver community engagement through both soccer and non-soccer initiatives throughout Middle Tennessee. Delek will enhance the work already being done through TSC Cares with organizations such as cureHUNTER, Special Olympics TN, Make-A-Wish, American Red Cross and Youth Villages.
In this initial year of the partnership, members of TSC and the Greater Nashville community will see the Delek logo as the primary jersey sponsor for the TSC HYSA rec league fall and spring seasons. The partnership also includes additional community-focused programs as well as elements to engage club members through cobranded digital content.
