D.C. United's new captain is ... Captain Morgan?

D.C. soccer aficionados and Captain Morgan fans were portrayed in a recent ad aired by Morgan’s parent company, Diageo PLC (NYSE: DEO). The advertisement aired shortly after Captain Morgan became a new corporate partner with MLS by offering an “eight-figure sum,” according to Forbes. On July 9, Captain Morgan announced that it had signed an agreement with MLS to become the league's official spiced rum and exclusive spirits partner through 2022.
