SACRAMENTO, Calif. (January 29, 2019) — Sacramento Republic FC announced today a new partnership with New Glory Craft Brewery that will bring together craft beer, art and soccer for the club’s 2019 USL Championship season. As part of the partnership, the Sacramento-based brewery will create a special edition of its flagship ‘Ubahdank West Coast IPA’ with the can’s artwork designed by fans through an open contest.
“We are delighted to partner with New Glory to bring a unique product to our fans on game days and throughout the season,” said Republic FC President & COO Ben Gumpert. “Much of the club’s beginnings were discussed over pints and that has always been part of the culture of this club, so we’re thrilled to collaborate with a local brewery and get fans involved.”
“We are extremely excited to become a proud partner of Sacramento Republic FC for their upcoming 2019 season,” said Julien Lux, owner and COO of New Glory Craft Brewery. “Being true fanatics of the club since its inception in 2014, this is a partnership we truly hold dear to our heart. We both share the same commitment and passion for our local community and can't wait to see what the passionate Republic fans come up with.”
Republic FC will hold a public contest to design the artwork for the limited edition ‘Ubahdank.’ Fans can submit their designs online from Jan. 29 to Feb. 17, with the winner being announced in the lead up to the club’s home opener on March 9. The co-branded Ubahdank ‘fan can’ will be available at Republic FC home matches at Papa Murphy’s Park during the 2019 season and at select bars and retailers throughout the year in limited quantities. More information on the fan can art competition is available at SacRepublicFC.com/new-glory.
New Glory Craft Brewery will also offer special perks for Republic FC fans on game days as part of the partnership. Anyone wearing Republic FC gear will receive 10% off their purchases at both New Glory locations during the two hours prior to kickoff and for two hours post-game.
