On June 12, Austin FC fans and some of our own Nutrabolt teammates got to see what it’s like to play at the highest level at ‘The 2023 Austin FC Energy Experience,’ hosted by C4 Energy. 

This event was one of the first major stops on C4 Energy’s The Official Energy Drink of Summer™ tour. Participants trained like a pro, explored the Q2 Stadium locker room and field, met some of the players, and scored exclusive swag — including an Austin FC and C4-branded Adidas backpack, a $50 gift card to the Verde Store, a branded Yeti cup, an Austin FC jersey, a T-shirt, and more! 

At Nutrabolt, we aim to give our teammates unique opportunities to engage with exciting activations and events whenever possible to enhance the teammate experience, and maximize potential in the workplace and out. Jonathan Brunssen, Technical Systems Specialist and Administrator at Nutrabolt, said attending the outing was a “one in a million” opportunity. 

“Words cannot explain how much I consider myself fortunate to be able to go to events like this. Joey [PR teammate] and his team did an amazing job running this event,” Jonathan said. “The Austin FC training squad did not hold their punches back as we ran through the drills and exercises. Also, being able to hang out with fellow teammates outside of work was a great team-building exercise.” 

On the field, Austin FC trainers split participants up into four large groups, and rotated them through drill stations as if they were real, professional athletes on the team. Activities included keep-a-way games, dribbling drills, passing drills, and scrimmaging. And, some participants even put their competitive spirit on display during juggling and dribbling contests. 

For Danny Martin — VP, Digital Accounts at Nutrabolt — soccer is his passion. He said getting the chance to take in this incredible experience with his son made it even more memorable. 

“The Austin FC Energy Experience was a unique opportunity to visit Q2, and practice on the actual field. As an avid soccer player and fan, it was awesome to be on the field and see everything from a player’s perspective,” Danny said. “Being able to share this with my son made it even more special.” 

Next on C4 Energy’s summer tour, the team will head to the West Coast for the Santa Monica Pier 360 Beach Festival and the Ocean Beach Street Fair on June 24 and 25. The success of The Austin FC Energy Experience is a clear indication that there will be a ton of energy and excitement to look forward to in California, and for the rest of the summer! 

“More than once at the event, I expressed to multiple people that getting these opportunities is one of my favorite components of working at Nutrabolt. I have been able to experience different events, some in the planning process, some participating or volunteering. The Austin FC Energy Experience is by far one of my favorites,” Kallie Jackson said, Office Administrator at Nutrabolt. “I feel so grateful to have the chance to just come and enjoy it as if I were a fan and winner. Thank you, Nutrabolt!” 

As always, thank you to our high-performing Brand and Marketing teams for bringing a bias for action to work every day, and leading innovative and exciting events for both our teammates and consumers to enjoy.
