Washington, D.C – The U.S. Soccer Foundation, the major charitable arm of soccer in the United States, today announced a two-year corporate partnership with Kwik Goal, one of the largest manufacturers of soccer goals and field equipment in the country. The two organizations will partner to bring the game of soccer to children in urban, underserved communities, who don’t have the resources to play and therefore receive the sport’s health and social benefits.
Kwik Goal serves as an Official Supplier to U.S. Soccer, the Canadian Soccer Association, and the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA). The organization offers a wide range of soccer-related products and equipment including full size match play goals, pop-up soccer goals, training equipment and coaching accessories. As a part of the collaboration, Kwik Goal will be named an Official Partner of the U.S. Soccer Foundation and will provide a wide-range of soccer equipment to the U.S. Soccer Foundation and its Soccer for Success program partners. In addition, the Foundation will support Kwik Goal’s continued efforts in the area of soccer goal safety by helping to provide goal safety education to the soccer community at large.
“The U.S. Soccer Foundation is honored to partner with Kwik Goal,” said Ed Foster-Simeon, President & CEO of the U.S. Soccer Foundation. “One of our top priorities at the Foundation is to grow the sport of soccer and utilize it in a way that positively affects children in urban, underserved communities throughout the U.S. Our partnership with Kwik Goal provides a wonderful opportunity to further our mission and we look forward to what these next two years with Kwik Goal have to offer.”
“Kwik Goal is happy to once again call the U.S. Soccer Foundation a partner,” commented Don Wetmore, VP of Sales and Marketing for Kwik Goal. “We look forward to being a very active partner by supporting the various programs offered by the Foundation, as well as providing support to the coaches that deliver these programs. For over twenty years, the Foundation has worked tirelessly in growing the game of soccer in this country and Kwik Goal is honored to assist them in this endeavor.”
