Kickers Announce The Lemus Group and United Real Estate As 2022 Playoffs Presenting Partners

Richmond Kickers are heading for the playoffs and here are some things to know.




The Richmond Kickers are excited to announce The Lemus Group and United Real Estate as the presenting sponsors for the club’s home semifinal and potential championship final match at City Stadium in the 2022 USL League One Playoffs, presented by Hisense.

The Lemus Group and United Real Estate are sponsoring a Blackout Tee giveaway at City Stadium during the semifinal match. The first 1,000 fans in the stadium will receive the black t-shirt that is emblazoned with the Kickers’ throwback shooting star soccer ball crest. Playoff tickets are available for purchase at

“We’re incredibly excited to have The Lemus Group and United Real Estate sponsoring our 2022 USL League One Playoff Home Matches,” Kickers’ Director of Corporate Partnerships, Drew Norris said. “With their support, we know that City Stadium will be electric during our playoff run.”

Sponsoring the Kickers’ 2022 playoff run is the beginning of a longer partnership between the club alongside The Lemus Group and United Real Estate that will see the group be the Official Real Estate sponsor of the Kickers in 2023.

“The Lemus Group is extremely proud of the Richmond Kickers and the opportunity to not only sponsor the first home playoff match since 2014 but to continue our partnership into the 2023 season as the Kickers’ real estate partners,” The Lemus Group’s Rudy Argueta said. “Let’s go, Kickers!”

The Lemus Group is a local real estate team that is passionate about educating its communities on creating generational wealth through homeownership. They also share that same passion for soccer and supporting their local pros.

Richmond will enjoy a bye week before hosting a USL League One Semifinal match, presented by Hisense on October 29. Kickoff time for the semifinal match is set for 6 pm. It will be the first time the Kickers have hosted a playoff game at City Stadium since 2014.
