Sacramento Republic FC is announcing a new partnership. No longer will they play matches at Bonney Field. Now, the field will known as Papa Murphy's Park.
Republic FC defender Emrah Klimenta said at a Thursday presentation, "On the field we're going to shake and bake, off the field we're going to take and back," referring to the pizza chains advertising slogan.

Greg Wellington is the president in the Sacramento market for Papa Murphy's. "We want to be activating a lot of future engagement, (like) players in-store, name a pizza (competition), so there are a lot of things coming down the road," said Wellington.
Sacramento FC President Warren Smith says adding another National brand to the mix can only benefit the future of the soccer club. He said that is especially so with Papa Murphy's already recognized as a sponsor of the Major League Soccer's Portland Timbers franchise.
