WILSON II April 4, 2020
The Wilson Youth Soccer Association will be sporting new threads beginning in the summer of 2020 as the club has officially agreed to a partnership agreement with Nike Soccer as the club's uniform and equipment partner through the summer of 2024.
"We are certainly excited to be partnering with Nike Soccer and feel this is a great example of strides the club is making to continue providing great quality to our players and staff. The conversations and negotiations with representatives from both Nike Soccer and our partners at Sports Endeavors [soccer.com] were extremely positive and we appreciate the support that both will be providing to the club over the next four years, and hopefully beyond," commented Director of Soccer Chris Mizelle.
All players and staff will be outfitted in Nike uniform kits and most primary team equipment will feature the familiar swoosh logo. In keeping with the new standard in brand outfitting, uniforms will be supplied in two year rotations. Nike will be the provider for multiple uniform rotations under the new agreement.
The club's current contract with New Balance Athletic Co. is set to expire at the conclusion of the spring season after three years.
"I think it's important to express our gratitude to our partners at New Balance, who we've enjoyed working with over the last several years," added Mizelle.
New Nike uniforms and apparel will be unveiled prior to the start of tryouts for the 2020-21 season and a team uniform guide will be made available for viewing on the club website. The ordering process through the club's partnership with soccer.com and its PlayerPass ordering system will remain in place.
