Major League Soccer’s LA Galaxy donned their Herbalife jerseys on the way to a historic win on Sunday. The team defeated the New England Revolution in the final game of this year’s MLS Cup, becoming the only team in the league’s history to win five championship titles.
Los Angeles-based Herbalife has partnered with the Galaxy for the past seven years, both on and off the field. Most recently, the Herbalife Family Foundation joined LA Galaxy players to serve Thanksgiving dinner to 1,000 local members of the Los Angeles community. Herbalife Chairman and CEO Michael O. Johnson congratulated the champions in an official release.
“It was a great day for Los Angeles sports and for the LA Galaxy, as they also created history by becoming the first MLS team to win five championship titles,” said Johnson. “As the LA Galaxy’s sponsor and nutrition partner for seven years, and as a Los Angeles resident for nearly 35 years, Herbalife is extremely proud of its association with this great club and this great city.”
