(Via McLean Youth Soccer) – McLean Youth Soccer has announced a partnership with Mars Incorporated, the 6th largest privately held company in the United States by Forbes.

The Mars logo will appear on the official MYS uniforms of all competitive teams between the ages of 13-19, effective January 2018.

More than 100 years ago, Frank C. Mars started making candies in his Takoma, Washington kitchen. From that simple beginning, his son Forrest built Mars into the mature company it is today, first by creating the MILKY WAY® bar with his father and later by expanding the business overseas and diversifying into new categories like pet care and food.

“I am delighted that we have been given the opportunity to partner with such a prestigious company – Mars Incorporated,” said Louise Waxler, Executive Director of McLean Youth Soccer. Our partnership with Mars provides us with the opportunity to provide additional financial resources to our need-based players ensuring they are given the opportunity to participate in McLean Youth Soccer. In addition, this partnership will elevate the MYS brand at the local, regional and national levels of the youth game.”

Today, the Mars family of Associates is more than 100,000 strong in over 80 countries around the world. Through all that growth, they have remained a private, family-owned business, headquartered in McLean, Virginia.
