London Sport and Chipotle 6 months in
Bloomsbury Football coach Lucas Capalbo has been named as our fifth Chipotle Community Champion as London Sport and Chipotle celebrate the halfway mark of the first year of the partnership.
London Sport works with Chipotle to find and celebrate the capital’s sport community heroes, someone who works in physical activity or sport and deserves special recognition.
Lucas joins an illustrious list of Chipotle Community Champions, those who make sport and physical activity happen, including Sam Sainsbury, Ulrike Gerstenberg, Emma Budgen and Steven Ita.
The Chipotle Community Champion campaign is just one aspect of a multi-dimensional partnership between London Sport and the global healthy-eating restaurant company Chipotle.
The London Sport Bowl launched in Chipotle stores at the start of the year, while Chipotle will support the London Sport Awards through The Enhancing the Workforce Award.
More imminently, delegates at our Active London conference will see Chipotle sponsor their tickets with a buy-one-get-one-free voucher for all attendees to our digital conference.
London Sport’s Business Development and Partnerships Manager, Jennie Rivett, said:
“It’s been an extremely busy few months, and we’re delighted with how our partnership with Chipotle is continuing to progress and develop.
“It is a real honour to hear the stories of our Chipotle Community Champions and the incredible work they are doing to support more Londoners to lead an active lifestyle.
“We are also grateful for Chipotle’s continued support for Active London and the London Sport Awards and hope their commitment shows the opportunities for potential partners at our events.”
Chipotle’s European Marketing Manager, Rachael Weseloh, added:
“Our partnership with London Sport has exceeded our expectations by driving incremental awareness for Chipotle’s real food and fresh ingredients with those seeking an active lifestyle.”
“We’re delighted to be able to work with London Sport to offer real food for real athletes – whether they’ve just taken their first step into activity or participate regularly in sport or physical activity.
“I’m excited for future partnership initiatives like the Active London conference and the London Sport Awards in December, as well as our exciting plans for 2022.”
