To mark the partnership, DoorDash will donate $5 for each order placed on February 18 to local restaurants owned or led by women.
The two parties will also work with CARE to address food insecurity in the Los Angeles area. In the first year of the partnership, Angel City and DoorDash have committed to bringing an estimated 250,000 meals to those in need.
“Today marks a major milestone in the evolution of Angel City Football Club as we welcome DoorDash as our founding front-of-kit partner,” said Julie Uhrman, Angel City president. “DoorDash aligns with our mission to make a positive impact across Los Angeles and beyond.
“We are so moved to see them immediately mobilize our partnership by helping get meals to those across Los Angeles who may otherwise go without. This is just the beginning and I look forward to the impact we will make together in the years to come.”
The agreement marks DoorDash’s first entry into professional soccer. The length and terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
“I’ve always loved the ability of sports to connect communities and make a positive impact,” said Tony Xu, DoorDash CEO and co-founder. “This partnership will uniquely merge food, sport and culture as we work together to give back to the Los Angeles community we serve and level the playing field for all.”
Angel City, which has a series of high-profile owners, is scheduled to join the NWSL in 2022. The team will play home games at Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles.
In December, Angel City announced that recovery technology company Therabody had become its founding tech wellness partner.
