Two Organizations Set to Develop Community-Based Programming Together
Sky Blue FC (4-3-1, 13 points) announced today that it has established a corporate partnership with MRC Recreation, one of the leading park and recreation equipment suppliers in North America. Key initiatives of the relationship will be focused on community outreach, with the two organizations partnering on a variety of community-based initiatives.
“We are very pleased to welcome MRC Recreation into the Sky Blue FC family,” said Tony Novo, Sky Blue FC President & General Manager. “We immediately knew that MRC was an ideal partner for us as soon as we began discussions with them. Similarly to Sky Blue FC, MRC shares in our organizational philosophy to give back and have a positive effect on the surrounding communities. We look forward to developing a great relationship with MRC and anticipate this being just the start of a great partnership together.”
One of the main focal points of this relationship will involve community soccer clinics that will be hosted by MRC Recreation and feature Sky Blue FC coaches and players. Additionally, the two organizations will structure and participate in other community events together as well.
“Over the past 40 years, MRC has focused on laying a strong community footprint throughout New Jersey in the form of park and playground development,” said Jim Marturano, President of MRC Recreation. “When partnering with local organizations, we seek those that share our community values, and we strongly believe we have found that in Sky Blue FC.”

MRC specializes in designing, selling and installing GameTime playground equipment, as well as various other park and recreation products. Based out of Spring Lake, N.J., they have a national reach and service many different states throughout the country.
