MIFC Lands Two Club Sponsorssponsors

Mercer Island FC is pleased to announce that we've reached sponsorship deals with two local companies. Pagliacci Pizza and Axia Home Loans have signed multiple year deals to be club sponsors in exchange for logo placement on player jerseys, inclusion in all club marketing and communications, possible field signage and other promotional benefits.

Pagliacci co-owner Matt Galvin grew up on Mercer Island, playing for the club as a youth player. When approached about sponsoring the club, he said he was eager to give back to a program that has meant so much to him and now his kids. Not only will Pagliacci be a club sponsor for the next several years, but they recently broke ground on their future Mercer Island restaurant in the Rite-Aid parking lot. Look for more information on the Pagliacci partnership and their new restaurant in the coming months. For more information on Pagliacci, check out their website at

Axia Home Loans President Gellert Dornay was similarly enthusiastic about supporting Mercer Island FC. Having several kids in the club, he knows what an incredible community asset MIFC is for island kids. We are thrilled to have Axia as one of our club sponsors. Check out Axia Home Loans at
