The Chicago Cubs are a celebrated sports brand with a rich history. They are headed in a great direction, and to be expanding our partnership to provide a team physical therapist is a great opportunity for Athletico.

As a partner of the Cubs since 2007, Athletico will now provide the team with a full-time physical therapist to work under the direction of Mark O’Neal, director of athletic training, and team physicians. In addition, Athletico will continue to provide an athletic training intern to help keep the team on the playing field during all home games.
“The Chicago Cubs are a celebrated sports brand with a rich history,” says Mark Kaufman, Athletico president and founder. “They are headed in a great direction, and to be expanding our partnership to provide a team physical therapist is a great opportunity for Athletico.”
Additional new elements of the partnership include sponsorship of the Cubs pregame, new in-game signage, presenting sponsorship of the Race to Wrigley 5K Run, and becoming the Official Provider of Physical Therapy for the Wrigley Field Road Tour, an annual 100-mile charity bike ride.
