Stater Bros. Markets Partners with LAFC and Homegrown Talent Christian Torres

San Bernardino, California (April 20, 2022) Stater Bros. Markets is excited and proud to announce its partnership with the Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) and rising LAFC star Christian Torres. Through this partnership, Stater Bros. Markets will bring the excitement of soccer to Stater Bros. stores and communities in Southern California, beginning with the 2022 Major League Soccer (MLS) season.

“It was important to us that we teamed up with a partner who echoed our values and community-first way of thinking. In Christian, we’ve found someone that works hard every day, is humble and embodies the kind of team spirit that we embrace here at Stater Bros.,” said Dennis McIntyre, Executive Vice President & Chief Marketing Officer. “LAFC has challenged the status quo in MLS by competing at the highest level and has proven to be a valuable contributor to our Southern California community,” McIntyre continued.
