The 65-year old company offers best-of-class home services, specializing in Pest Control, HVAC, Plumbing and Smart Technologies.

"Aligning with Carolina Core FC was almost a no-brainer, given that Go-Forth Home Services is passionate about development, grit and opportunity - things that CCFC will also foster. We're proud to support such a positive force in this community that I have always called home. Plus, I'm a huge soccer fan," says Chase Hazelwood, CEO and Owner of Go-Forth Home Services.

The multi-year agreement designates Go-Forth Home Services as an Official Signature Sponsor and the Official Pest Control partner of Carolina Core FC. The official Go-Forth Home Services name and logo will be prominently displayed on the front of the Carolina Core FC’s and CCFC Academy’s match jerseys. The signature partner will also be featured on the scoreboard and signage within Truist Point Stadium on matchdays.

Additionally, Go-Forth Home Services also received designation as the official naming rights partner of Go-Forth Elite Performance Center. The eight-figure training complex is scheduled to open in 2025 ahead of Carolina Core FC’s second season in MLS NEXT Pro. The Go-Forth Elite Performance Center will include a comprehensive gym, medical treatment and rehab facilities, equipment management area, locker-rooms, video analysis studio, executive offices, player lounges, and catering kitchen.

“When deciding on a partner to have on the front of our jersey and Elite Performance Center, it was important to have a brand that was not only recognizable but highly regarded within the Core. After working with Chase and Leah Hazelwood, there is no surprise that they have built a leader in the home services industry. They are amazing people who have built a successful business by surrounding themselves with an incredible team. We are honored that Go-Forth Home Services chose to work with us in such a meaningful way,” says Carolina Core FC President, Andy Smith.

Rebranding this year under the umbrella of Go-Forth Home Services, Go-Forth Pest Control was founded in 1959 in High Point, North Carolina. Since its formation, the company has remained family-owned and committed to providing affordable, quality pest control. Today, the company has branches throughout the Southeast and with several acquisitions of other high-quality companies, has grown its home service offerings to include pest control, HVAC, plumbing and smart technologies.

"Go-Forth has been involved with youth soccer in our area for many years. We've seen, through our involvement with several local organizations, the tremendous positive impact that sports can have on young people. It's truly an honor to support CCFC Academy which will open up so many opportunities on and off the field to kids in our community," says Leah Hazelwood, CEO of Go Forth Marketing.

In 2022, Go Forth Marketing was born under the leadership of CEO, Leah Hazelwood, after spinning off Go-Forth's internal marketing department into its own company. Growing to a team of over 15 dedicated employees, Go Forth Marketing has quickly proven its prowess in the competitive marketing industry, offering strategy, design, videography and photography services to a variety of businesses.

“We're thrilled and honored to launch our partnership with Go-Forth Home Services — Chase and Leah have such amazing energy, passion, and caring hearts in making an incredible impact in North Carolina and beyond. We share similar values in both of our organizations and this partnership speaks to the community — it's a perfect fit to have Go-Forth Home Services on the front of our customized hummel kits," states Chief Revenue Officer, Chris Baretta.

Go-Forth Home Services will come on as a multi-year partner with Carolina Core FC’s MLS NEXT program, CCFC Academy. The Academy program will be fully scholarship funded, removing all boundaries to playing at the highest elite level for eligible players.
