WaiBOP United is pleased to announce The Soccer Shop, in a joint deal with Score Sportswear, as our front of shirt sponsor and kit supplier for the 2014/15 ASB Premiership season.
The Soccer Shop is extremely well known in football circles. Based in Hamilton, The Soccer Shop is New Zealand’s leading supplier of football equipment, merchandise and replica kit, and is the Official Merchandise Partner of New Zealand Football. The Soccer Shop also sponsors New Zealand Secondary Schools Football.
Score Sportswear is the New Zealand distributor of Lotto Italian Sports Design apparel and footwear, one of the premier football brands in the country. The company is family owned and operates from a custom built facility in Avondale, Auckland. WaiBOP United will play in Lotto kit during the 2014/15 ASB Premiership.
Shane and Terri Comber, owners of The Soccer Shop, are delighted to get behind their local ASB Premiership franchise. “We work with numerous clubs across the region and have a long-standing relationship with both WaiBOP Football and national league football in the area,” said Shane. “We are a family business and see the football family as an extension of our own family.”
“We endeavour to support players, coaches, teams, schools and clubs throughout the WaiBOP region and beyond, from grassroots through to the national and international levels,” explains Terri. “So this partnership with WaiBOP United is a natural fit for us. We’re taking on a more visible role with WaiBOP United this season and we’re both looking forward to seeing how the team develops across the season as well as enjoying watching football in the best conditions of the year.”
Merv Williams, WaiBOP United Board Chair, is pleased to have The Soccer Shop involved with the franchise for the 2014/15 campaign. “Shane and his team have been massive supporters of football in our region over many years, so it’s great to be able to partner with The Soccer Shop for what promises to be an entertaining and exciting summer of football,” explained Williams. “Hopefully we can provide a successful branding platform for The Soccer Shop.”
