On the day of its first-ever scrimmage, Austin FC announced that C4 Energy, a drink produced by Austin-based company Nutrabolt, is now the club's first Official Energy Drink.


In the multi-year partnership, Austin FC will have its own flavor of the drink-—Mango Lime—which will feature the team's colors and crest. The drink will be available at select Austin-area H-E-B stores. In addition, C4 Energy will keep fans energized during games with drinks offered at food and beverage stands, VIP Club areas and luxury suites within the team's brand-new Q2 Stadium.

Coming up first, however, is a partnership between C4 and Austin FC to host an official Austin FC gaming tournament on Tuesday, March 23. Gamers can sign up here for the tournament, which will have C4 and Austin FC merch as prizes.

C4 Energy, created by Nutrabolt in 2018, is America's top pre-workout fuel and the fastest-growing performance energy drink brand in the nation.

Austin-based Nutrabolt joins the ranks with several other hometown Austin FC sponsors, including Yeti, Austin Eastciders, Q2 and St. David's Healthcare.

Nutrabolt CEO Doss Cunningham said the company was glad to support a prominent Austin team and bring their drinks to fans.

"As a company headquartered in Austin, we are excited and proud to partner with Austin FC, our city's first Major League Soccer team," Cunningham said. "C4 Energy is all about helping people level up their game and performance, and this is the perfect opportunity to share our brand with soccer fans, the Austin community and of course, cheer on our new hometown team."
