Herbalife Announces Individual Sponsorships with 2 LA Galaxy Players

LOS ANGELES, Jun 08, 2012 -- Herbalife Ltd. announced two individual sponsorship deals with 2011 MLS Defender of the Year Omar Gonzalez and fellow defender, Sean Franklin. Both players play for the reigning MLS Cup champion, the LA Galaxy.

Dallas native Omar Gonzalez, the 2011 MLS Defender of the Year, as well as the Galaxy's Defender of the Year, and a member of the MLS Best XI, renewed his individual sponsorship contract with Herbalife for a second consecutive year. As an Herbalife sponsored athlete, Gonzalez will continue using the company's nutrition products to complement his sports nutrition and training regimen. Part of the sponsorship includes the use of his likeness in marketing materials and participation in various promotional events with Herbalife independent distributors across the U.S.

"I've been using Herbalife products for over two years now, and have been very pleased with the results they provide to my rigorous nutritional requirements. Now that Herbalife has its own sports performance line, Herbalife24, I can stay in top shape and in line with my nutritional needs. Being a part of the Herbalife family has been a great experience thus far," stated Gonzalez.

Sean Franklin, one of the Galaxy's longest tenured players having joined the club in 2008, remains one of the most athletic right backs in MLS and a key ingredient in the club's defensive success to date. Franklin was selected by the Galaxy in the first round (4th overall) of the 2008 MLS SuperDraft. Like Gonzalez, Franklin's contract agreement makes Herbalife his official nutrition sponsor, and the company will supply him with nutrition products to help him meet his sports nutrition needs, and he will participate in Herbalife promotional events with independent distributors.

"It's exciting to be part of the Herbalife family. I've been using the products Herbalife supplies in our locker room for the past couple of years and to have a closer relationship with the company and its enthusiastic independent distributors with this new partnership, it really is special," said Franklin.
