Philadelphia Union and Bimbo Bakeries USA today announced a four year partnership agreement that will put one of the world’s largest baking companies on the front of the Union team jersey and all team apparel.

“Today’s announcement is yet another defining moment in both Philadelphia Union’s and Major League Soccer’s history,” said Philadelphia Union CEO Operating Partner Nick Sakiewicz. “The Union brand is about authenticity and you don’t get more authentic than Bimbo. We’re honored to partner with such a major international company with a rich soccer tradition and longstanding commitment to world class products and outstanding customer service.
“Finding the right partner to place on the Union jersey took some time but we wanted to make sure we partnered with an authentic company that shares our core values and commitment to the sport, fans and customers,” Sakiewicz continued. “We are proud to say that we have found that partner in Bimbo.”
