Bellingham United F.C. is excited and proud to announce that Bellingham’s soccer pub, The Copper Hog Gastropub has agreed to extend their partnership with the semi pro men’s soccer squad. The iconic Copper Hog logo will adorn the front of the Bellingham United home and away jerseys for the next two years as the title sponsor of the Hammers. This is fitting as Bellingham’s soccer team is partnering with Bellingham’s premier soccer restaurant and pub.
Aaron Mattson, Owner of The Copper Hog, on the extended partnership with BUFC, “We have always been very excited to have been a part of United from day one and we continue to be excited to support the home team”
The Copper Hog over the past three years has been the host for a wide variety of BUFC events, from the match day beer garden, pre-season X-box tournament, to post match gatherings with United players and fans at the Copper Hog at 1327 North State Street. As an all ages establishment until late evening, the Copper Hog has been great place to connect players, coaches and fans as many of the Hammers fans, young and old, get the opportunity to talk and mingle with the players following games.
Marc Ronney, Bellingham United F.C.’s General Manager said “Bellingham United FC is pleased to have The Copper Hog Gastropub as our sponsor for the next two years. We are proud to wear their logo and will do our best to represent The Copper Hog and Whatcom County as we travel around the state throughout the year.”
