West Windsor, N.J. (Tuesday, March 10, 2009) – The New Jersey Wildcats announced today that they are partnering with the Soccer Post, the largest retail chain of soccer stores in the United States. With nine shops in the state of New Jersey alone, the Wildcats and the Soccer Post look to combine their marketing and community efforts in the surrounding region.
"Not only does the Soccer Post have great products and service, but their owners are great supporters of the sport and are happy to give back to those in the community,” Wildcats President Kevin McDermott commented. “Our players, coaches and front office are grateful for their support."
The Soccer Post owns a retail chain of soccer specialty stores in the United States and has been in business since 1991. They have 25 stores in 11 states, stretching from California to the East Coast. They sell all types of soccer gear including footwear, uniforms, training equipment and goals, and the company maintains a steady flow of business through their website, www.soccerpost.com. They also run an affiliation program with many of their suppliers to drive extended business to their affiliates.
“I'm extremely excited about our partnership with the New Jersey Wildcats,” Soccer Post owner Dan Manson stated. “It shows our commitment to soccer at all levels. We are a grassroots driven business and are very excited about helping the Wildcats be successful both on and off the field."
With the relationship, the Wildcats and the Soccer Post will combine their efforts within the New Jersey community. Through local appearances such as youth clinics, both look to maintain a positive impact throughout the region. The Wildcats will also use the Soccer Post as their supplier of equipment for their upcoming season, which will begin on Saturday, May 9th, when the team travels to Long Island for a 5:00 p.m. kickoff against the Rough Riders.
