Chivas USA and Corona Extra revealed 2011 Jersey in Downtown, L.A.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (Wednesday, February 16, 2011) – Chivas USA of Major League Soccer (MLS) and Corona Extra celebrated the upcoming 2011 MLS season with an unveiling of the new Red-and-White jersey sported by members of the team at a special event held at The Standard in downtown Los Angeles.

The Red-and-White will wear jerseys bearing Corona beer logo.

“This is a proud moment and a very special night for Chivas.  I would like to thank those here from Mexico and Grupo Modelo,” said Antonio Cue, President Chivas USA and co-owner.

“This is a new beginning and a turnaround for many things to happen to this institution.  This is the first time that Corona has sponsored a team in the US, probably the toughest and most competitive sports country in the world.  This is something that we feel very proud for Corona to be the entrance to sports in the US with the Chivas family.”

Chivas USA players such as Justin Braun, a veteran newcomer this season, Jimmy Conrad and others sported the jerseys for the media special event.

Jimmy Conrad had this to say about being a newcomer and what he brings to the team.  “I bring experience to the team.  When the [season] starts, we will need guys to solve problems and I will probably be one of those guys.  We have a lot of young guys and it’s important to make sure they are emotionally sound on the field.”

Corona Extra has been the number one imported premium beer in the US for more than a decade and is the top imported beer in 50 of the 170 countries in which it is currently present.

Chivas USA home opener on March 19 against Omar Bravo and Sporting Kansas City.  Season Seats for 2011 are now on sale, with prices remaining at the same low rates as 2010.
