By Community | June 3, 2013
Castrol GTX High Mileage, the official motor oil of the U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team and Major League Soccer has announced Kasey Keller as its new brand ambassador.
The American soccer legend will be featured across the Castrol GTX High Mileage “Best Miles Ahead” campaign and will also be making player appearances across Castrol sponsored events through 2014.
“Kasey is the ideal player for Castrol to partner with as he exemplifies the GTX High Mileage brand and idea of ‘best miles ahead’,” said Tracy Drelich , Associate Promotions/Sponsorship Manager for Castrol. “Castrol is proud to celebrate Kasey’s long-standing, successful career and all of his accomplishments beyond the goal.”
Keller, who has had an impressive goalkeeping career across the globe, previously played for Seattle Sounders FC (MLS) and the United States Men’s National Soccer Team. He is a four-time FIFA World Cup™ player and the first American goalkeeper to become a regular in the German Bundesliga, the English Premier League and the Spanish La Liga. Currently, Keller is a commentator for ESPN and the Sounders’ color commentator in local broadcasts.
“As a former player and current soccer analyst, I am honored to be partnering with Castrol to support their ongoing dedication to soccer,” said Keller. “With the Castrol Index, the brand has created an innovative way to engage the soccer community. It’s been exciting to watch the evolution of how player performances are reviewed since my time on the field.”
Castrol is also an official sponsor of the FIFA Confederations Cup 2013 and 2014 FIFA World Cup. Castrol will support both the U.S. and Mexican Men’s National Teams as they continue their 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaigns.
