EL DORADO, AR--(Marketwire - February 23, 2010) - Murphy USA launched their new Youth Sports Team Sponsorship website, www.teammurphyusa.com, in January 2010 in an effort to expand their community outreach in the upcoming years. As a corporation passionately committed to its communities, neighborhoods, and today's youth, Murphy USA has taken an avid interest in supporting local youth sports teams.

"We wanted to grow beyond just helping out a few local teams to create a program that ties all of our teams together and provides opportunities for other youth in our neighborhoods to join Team Murphy USA," says Jay Staggs, Murphy USA Communications Director.

Team Murphy USA is an interactive website that allows team representatives from youth sports leagues to submit their information online for review and possible sponsorship. From the site, sponsored teams can upload photographs, show off their trophies, send congratulations, and share their sponsorship experience.

The automated application process on www.teammurphyusa.com has made the process much easier for teams to get sponsored. Sports team sponsorship amounts are determined by the level of recognition provided and range from $100 to $500.

Murphy USA is currently operating over 1,000 retail stores in 21 states and is looking to open an additional 80 stores in 2010. They are currently looking to sponsor a youth sports team in each community with a Murphy USA/Express. If you are a local youth sports team that has a Murphy USA/Express in your town, you can apply. Simply have a representative from your team submit your information by filling out the team sponsorship form online.
