ALEXANDRIA, Va.—MAPCO has announced a new partnership with Huntsville City Football Club (HCFC) through the 2025 season. The retailer is a founding partner and will be the club’s exclusive convenience store partner. MAPCO and HCFC will work with community organizations to surprise local youth with tickets to HCFC matches.
“This partnership allows us the chance to support the Huntsville community where we live and work by cheering on the city’s new hometown team,” said Frederic Chaveyriat, chief executive officer at MAPCO. “MAPCO looks forward to rooting for the Huntsville City Football Club alongside our Huntsville neighbors, and we encourage all fans to take advantage of our special offers throughout the soccer season.”
The sponsorship builds on MAPCO’s growing presence in Huntsville. In December 2022, the brand welcomed a new store to the area. In honor of its opening and with the help of guests, MAPCO donated coats to Boys and Girls Club of North Alabama and dedicated a Fueling Our Future gas pump that raised $11,111 for youth recreation programs at Huntsville High School.
MAPCO recently celebrated the grand opening of its newest store in Wilson County, Tennessee. As part of the grand opening ceremonies and in support of MAPCO’s ongoing commitment to the communities it serves, MAPCO unveiled on-site Fueling Our Future dedicated gas pumps benefiting the students at Mt. Juliet High School. The pumps will be open for 30 days following the opening celebration, with MAPCO donating 25 cents for every gallon pumped to the school’s athletic and arts programs.
In late April, MAPCO Express announced that it would be acquired by Alimentation Couche-Tard and Majors Management. The transaction is expected to close in the second half of calendar year 2023.
