Stuart, FL – February 2021 – Team IP is proud to announce a multi-year partnership agreement with US Youth Soccer as the exclusive provider for decorated event apparel, branded products, and digital marketing to include online e-commerce and campaign stores across all 50 states.
From its humble beginnings in 1974 US Youth Soccer has grown to become the largest youth sports organization in the country. They provide world-class support, resources, and leadership, both on and off the field of play to nearly 3 million players annually. Through its programming, resources, and leadership, US Youth Soccer is advancing the game for its 55 Member State Associations, 10,000 clubs, and leagues, and nearly 1 million administrators, coaches, and volunteers. US Youth Soccer connects families and communities to the power of sports and its shared love of soccer. They strive to provide a path for every player, offering programs that provide a fun, safe, and healthy environment for players at every level of the game.
Team IP partnered with US Youth Soccer during the summer of 2020 at the height of the pandemic. This led to many cancellations and postponed events right from the start. Team IP was set to kick-off the multi-year partnership in December of 2020 with the USYS National League North Carolina event. Unfortunately, this event was postponed as well. They were able to reschedule this event and Team IP is excited to be a part of the action. USYS National League North Carolina 2021 will be held February 26th – March 1st at the BB&T Soccer Complex at Bryan Park in Greensboro, NC. It will feature both a soccer showcase and playoff brackets for girls 15U, 16U, 17U, 18U, 19U, and boys 17U, 18U, and 19U.
The National League Showcase Series offers a unique opportunity for National League Conference teams to compete within a national platform. Each showcase provides diverse cross-conference matchups against teams from differing parts of the country — testing each player to adapt to various styles of play and new challenges that arise when facing uncommon opponents.
Randy Sparks Team IP CEO and Founder stated “After meeting with US Youth Soccer and finding that we share many of the same core values we knew the partnership would be a great fit. We are excited to kick-off this February in North Carolina and are looking forward to the President’s Cup and National Championship Series later this summer.”
Team IP is recognized as the # 1 Souvenir Merchandiser for amateur sports in the United States, servicing over 2,200 events annually, and is a five-time recipient of the INC 500/5000 Award presented to the fastest-growing companies in the US.
