LAFCU Announces Long-Term Support for Local Professional Soccer Team

LANSING, Mich. – LAFCU CEO Pat Spyke and other LAFCU representatives helped Michigan’s newest professional soccer team unveil its inaugural jerseys in March at Lansing’s Cooley Law School Stadium.

The Lansing-based credit union pledged long-term support for Lansing Ignite FC by stepping up as the inaugural kit, or uniform, sponsor through 2023. Among other LAFCU-sponsored activities is a Fireworks Spectacular following the 2019 season’s final match, Oct. 5.

LIFC President Nick Grueser said, “LAFCU is an amazing fit as a sponsor because its mission to serve the communities in which it operates is exactly what we want in a partner."

Spkye said, “This is an incredible opportunity to help make Michigan stronger. A professional team like Lansing Ignite FC enriches the state by providing entertainment that brings communities together and helps make Michigan a more desirable place to live, work and raise families.”

The Michigan-designed uniforms in the team colors of orange and blue communicate energy and excitement. They are available for purchase online, https://lansing-ignite-club-shop.myshopify.com, and at Nuts and Bolts, 505 E. Michigan Ave., Lansing.

LAFCU and LIFC are offering a jersey giveaway to be awarded April 12, the day before the team’s USL League One home opener, Saturday, April 13. Entry sign up is at www.lansingignite.com/lafcu-jersey-giveaway.

Spyke said sponsorship of Lansing Ignite FC is similar to LAFCU’s support 23 years ago for the then-new Lansing Lugnuts, a Class-A minor league baseball team affiliated with the Toronto Blue Jays, and creation of LAFCU Fireworks Spectaculars that follow many Lansing Lugnuts’ games. Both are mid-Michigan traditions today. The two teams – Lansing Lugnuts and Lansing Ignite – now share Cooley Law School Stadium facilities.

"I believe in another 23 years, we’ll look back at 2019 and see we created another Michigan tradition.”
