With the World Cup 2014 fast approaching, the Mexican National Soccer Team (FMF) continues to tune-up with a series of matches across the US -- including a "friendly" against Nigeria today at Reliant Stadium in Houston.
At every match, the team is packing stadiums with thousands of fans turning out in support. Makita, an Official Sponsor of FMF, takes the opportunity to meet the fans in the lively pre-game Futbol Fiesta zone. Fans can try out the latest Makita power tools, enter to win an array of giveaways, meet Senorita Makita Anna Valencia, and more.
Today's match against Nigeria at Houston's Reliant Stadium was no exception, with a crowded Makita booth in the pregame zone, long lines at the Senorita Makita photo booth, and thousands of soccer-crazed fans wearing the red, green and white in support of FMF.
The backing of FMF is part of Makita's active sponsorship of action sports and racing, which includes professional soccer, closed course off-road racing, and more. Makita is the Official Power Tool Sponsor of Major League Soccer (MLS), which continues to draw legions of fans and expand with new teams across the US. Makita is also a Team Sponsor of top drivers in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) including Brian "The General" Deegan and Rob MacCachren.
