Sky Blue FC of the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) officially announced today that it has renewed its corporate partnership with Saker ShopRites for the 2016 season.
“We are very pleased to continue our relationship with Saker ShopRites,” said Tony Novo, Sky Blue FC President and General Manager. “Saker ShopRites has been a corporate partner of Sky Blue FC since our professional club began play in 2009, and they have always remained a member of our team. They have played a vital role in the development of Sky Blue FC over the years, and we are very happy to know they will continue to be such a significant part of our future.”
Saker ShopRites has been a corporate partner of Sky Blue FC in each of its previous six professional seasons, and 2016 marks a seventh year with the franchise. One of the most notable components of the relationship is the Saker ShopRites Halftime Kick at each home match, where one randomly selected fan is given the opportunity to win $10,000 in groceries.
“Saker ShopRites is pleased to continue our partnership with Sky Blue FC for another season,” said Richard Saker, President and CEO of Saker ShopRites. “We have supported Sky Blue FC since the early origins of the team, and it is with great pleasure to know we have played a significant role in the growth of the organization. We truly feel that the sky is the limit for Sky Blue FC and women’s soccer in general, and we look forward to remaining part of what the future holds.”
Saker ShopRites owns and operates 29 supermarkets in central New Jersey, including Monmouth, Ocean, Middlesex, Somerset and Mercer counties. They are also very active in the local community and have significant involvement with many different philanthropic organizations.
