“Meridian Health has been an exceptional partner for us over the past two years, and we are very excited to continue our relationship into a third season,” stated Tony Novo, Sky Blue FC President & General Manager. “Our world class athletes receive the same level of world class medical treatment from Meridian Health, and that plays a pivotal role for us on the field. Off the pitch, having such a top-class organization like Meridian Health as our title sponsor is equally as beneficial in the surrounding community and beyond. We look forward to expanding our relationship into 2016, which we expect to be a major success for both of our organizations.”
