Centene Corporation and Charlotte FC announced a multi-year agreement, designating the company as the Official Health Insurance partner for the Club, which will kick off its inaugural campaign in 2022. By partnering with Charlotte FC, Centene further reinforces its focus in the local community, while developing a deeper relationship with new and existing soccer fans. As a founding partner, Centene is deeply committed to supporting Charlotte FC's community programs, including the Centene Community Section, a seating option at Bank of America Stadium. The Centene Community Section will provide fans with one of the most affordable season ticket membership options available. Centene's partnership will cover the cost of the Seat License and Charlotte FC will apply those fees to fund three key community programs. Through the partnership, Centene will also support the Club's investment in community programs including Greater Goals, Meals on the Move, and Pitches for Progress: great goals: through great goals, Centene and Charlotte FC will enable hundreds of students at 22 local Title I elementary schools to have access to free afterschool soccer and literacy programming throughout the school year; meals on the move: Centene is also making a significant commitment to address food insecurity in the greater Charlotte area through support of Charlotte FC's Meals on the Move program, which will provide family-style meals to neighborhoods in need throughout the duration of the partnership; and pitches for progress: for the pitches for progress platform, Centene will build multiple mini pitches in the Carolinas and in some of Charlotte's most at-risk neighborhoods. The first pitch is currently under construction and will be announced next month. In addition to supporting the Club's community platforms, Centene will also become the first sponsor featured on the sleeve of the MLS first team kits and the front of the training kits along with those of the Club's three Academy teams.
