Major League Soccer joined TEAM Coalition in 2005. Since then, the two organizations have worked together to train thousands of stadium employees in alcohol management and to encourage fans to pledge to be designated drivers.
The vast majority of MLS stadiums offers supporters a designated driver program. Supporters who register to be a designated driver pledge to not drink alcohol, drive their friends and family home safely, and ensure that everyone always buckles up. In return for their pledge, these supporters are entered to win the MLS Responsibility Has Its Rewards (RHIR) sweepstakes.
Track league-wide designated driver pledges and check the standings of Budweiser Good Sport Designated Driver Challenges on the MLS Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk page.
Every year, TEAM Coalition recognizes the clubs, concessionaires, and other game day staffing companies who have shown an outstanding effort in making sure their employees are certified in effective alcohol management. Award winners are listed in the table below:
