As the official automotive partner of Major League Soccer, Audi is supporting greater access to the sport and embracing MLS leaders who are fostering equity and inclusion and working to create sustainable local communities.
Audi Goals Drive Progress
In a league-wide joint initiative established in 2019, the Audi Goals Drive Progress program helps develop future generations of professional soccer players in the MLS academy system through housing, educational, and transportation support. For every goal scored during the MLS season, Audi contributes directly into the Audi Goals Drive Progress Fund to support each MLS Club Youth Academy.
Through a program expansion in 2023, the Audi Goals Drive Progress initiative also drives progress off the pitch by financially supporting and spotlighting community initiatives championed by MLS players.
Audi Goals Drive Progress embraces leaders across the league whose dedication to charitable efforts and social impact work create sustainable communities, foster equity and inclusion, and enrich the lives of those in need across the U.S. and Canada.
Audi is committed to contributing up to $1 million per season through the Audi Goals Drive Progress fund between both initiatives.
MLS Golden Boot Award
The league’s top goal scorer each season is recognized with the prestigious MLS Golden Boot award presented by Audi.
Los Angeles Football Club forward Dénis Bouanga claimed the 2023 MLS Golden Boot after scoring a league-high 20 goals.
Bouanga has raised a total of $29,000 for MLS academies through the ‘Audi Goals Drive Progress’ program, a multi-year initiative dedicated to expanding the breadth of academy resources through contributions toward player education, housing, and transportation.
The funds raised by Bouanga include $200 per goal scored during the 2023 MLS regular season to be distributed to all MLS academies, and an additional $25,000 contribution to the LAFC academy for winning the Golden Boot.
