FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Sting Soccer Teams up with Under Armour
Dallas, Texas - March 23, 2016 - The Sting Soccer Organization is set to take to the field in 2016/2017 with a new look and a ground-breaking partnership with one of the top performance apparel providers - Under Armour. The announcement comes after a long and thoughtful process aimed at evaluating strategic initiatives that will build on the strong momentum Sting has built over the years through national, regional, and local success.
The partnership includes a custom designed uniform exclusive to the Sting Soccer Organization, a retail partnership with the largest online soccer retailer in the world - Soccer.com, and a brand partnership with Under Armour that will support the club in creating a youth soccer female brand unlike any other.
The partnership underscores Sting Soccer's continued dedication to providing an unmatched soccer experience for members through programs and partners that align closely with its focused goal of creating a complete athlete. Under Armour's recent launch of its Rule Yourself campaign, honoring the commitment to the training that each athlete pushes through in order to perform when their moment in the spotlight comes, illustrates this alignment perfectly.
In true pioneering fashion for both brands - Sting Soccer Organization will be a signature club for Under Armour and the first ECNL club in Under Armour apparel. All Sting teams within the club will sport a custom designed uniform exclusive to Sting, and through the partnership Sting looks forward to providing coaches and players with top quality, high performance apparel.
Brent Coralli, Owner/Principal of the Sting Soccer Organization looks forward to what the future holds: "We are excited to announce the new partnership between Sting Soccer and Under Armour. Sting consistently strives for excellence both on and off the field. Under Armour's paramount reputation in the sports apparel industry is a direct reflection of Sting's commitment to quality and distinction. The Sting/Under Armour alliance will ensure the utmost professionalism, continued achievement, and great victory for the future."
