Earlier today Athletico Therapy announced a new partnership with our very own Cardinals. As part of this agreement, Athletico will receive Cardinals based media exposure and have an impact on Busch Stadium events as well. When asked about the partnership, Mark Kaufman (Athletico founder and president) stated, “Teaming up with the St. Louis Cardinals was a natural step in advancing the Athletico name in the Midwest. We are looking forward to a strong relationship with the Cardinals for years to come.” He also referred to the Cardinals as “One of the most successful franchises in Major League Baseball.” Not bad praise by any means.

Along with the Cardinals, Athletico has partnerships with the U.S. Big Ten Conference, Chicago White Sox, Chicago Bears, Chicago Blackhawks, Chicago Bulls and other organizations. Athletico already has 28 locations in the St. Louis area and is eager to expand their business as a result of their partnership with the Cardinals.
