It only makes sense for Alcatel OneTouch to increase its visibility in North America by partnering with a professional sports team. Today, the company announced a multi-year partnership with Toronto FC. The move is Alcatel OneTouch’s “most significant brand investment to date” in Canada and it comes at a time when the company will sell its flagship phone in the country. Alcatel OneTouch will work to develop pre-game and in-game experiences along with social media, digital, and advertising campaigns for the Major League Soccer team.

Alcatel OneTouch donated $10,000 (CAD) to the DeRo Foundation, an organization that promotes the sport among local youth.
