The Greater Twin Cities Honda Dealers Association (GTCHDA) has partnered with Minnesota United FC (MNUFC) as an official sponsor. As such, the GTCHDA is proudly debuting its "Life is Better" campaign featuring the club's forward Christian Ramirez and midfielder Ethan Finlay. The aired versions of the commercials can be viewed on GTCHDA's YouTube channel.
"Minnesotans always have sports in mind —and soccer, the fastest growing sport in the country, is no exception," said Kyle Allison, GM of Luther Hopkins Honda and association president. "We are so excited to partner with [MNUFC] and can't wait to see what the 2018 season holds for the team."
The association will also sponsor the Honda Halftime Show and will host events throughout the season. MNUFC's home opener against the Chicago Fire is on March 17 at TCF Bank Stadium.
"We're looking forward to this partnership with the [GTCHDA] and everything it will do for our fans and the club," said MNUFC CEO Chris Wright. "From the events we're working on for our home matches to getting to see Christian and Ethan in Honda commercials, this will be a special relationship that will benefit everyone involved but especially the fans."
Recently, the GTCHDA has turned its attention to the community. In November 2017, it started an initiative to donate up to $5,000 to local schools and have totaled $20,000.
