Carolina Core FC Announces Official Signature Partnership with Deuterman Law Group
Carolina Core FC, an independent club that will join MLS NEXT Pro in 2024, has partnered with the Deuterman Law Group, a leading North Carolina injury law firm, as a foundational sponsor.
The club is set to begin preseason training on January 29.
The multi-year agreement designates Deuterman Law Group as an official signature sponsor and the official law firm of Carolina Core FC. The law firm’s name and logo will be prominently displayed on the backs of the Carolina Core FC’s and CCFC Academy’s training tops. These tops will be worn by the professional and youth players throughout training sessions and match warm-ups.
Deuterman will also be featured on the scoreboard and signage at the stadium.
“The Deuterman Law Group is proud to partner with the Carolina Core Football Club. It’s exciting for us to be part of the team bringing professional soccer to our region,” said law firm founder and president Dan Deuterman. “But what makes this partnership even more special for us is the opportunity to positively impact our community and support young athletes. Our partnership includes sponsorship of the CCFC Academy and its two Major League Soccer NEXT Elite Youth teams. We are also sponsors of the club’s Community Clinic Series, which will bring youth soccer instruction to underserved communities throughout central North Carolina.”
The Deuterman Law Group and Carolina Core FC share similar corporate values and a commitment to community involvement. The law firm has donated more than $1.5 million to community groups and organizations since it was founded in 2003. These include Urban Ministry, Samaritan Ministries, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and community youth sports organizations.
“Carolina Core FC is thrilled to announce our multi-year signature partnership with Deuterman Law Group. We have a shared mission to make the NC Core and beyond a better place. The community impact the Deuterman Law Group makes speaks volumes of Dan Deuterman and his award-winning team,” said Chris Baretta, Chief Revenue Officer for Carolina Core FC. “We cannot wait to launch our community clinic series together and other community-centric initiatives in preparation for our 2024 inaugural campaign together. From our first conversation, Dan and his team have been incredible with their support and belief in our fully funded, elite youth soccer program. This youth, no-barriers program is the first in our country by a non-MLS club.”
With office locations in Greensboro, Winston-Salem, and Durham, the Deuterman Law Group is an injury law firm, focusing on workers’ compensation, Discapacidad de Seguro Social, Discapacidad de Veteranos, accidente de auto and nursing home neglect cases.
