US officebroker.com team help local footballers score new kit
Our office space team in the US have recently arranged to sponsor a local Dallas-based football team.
The Wylie Youth Soccer Association is a group of highly enthusiastic five-year-old football players, who are trained by officebroker.com’s Billy Knauss.
The team have enjoyed great success since their start-up just two years ago. Despite a tough first season, the young players all worked hard in their training sessions and were rewarded last season, with a fantastic run of victories that was marred by just one defeat.
officebroker.com’s Billy Knauss, whose 5-year-old son plays for the WYSA, says:
“It’s a lot of fun to watch. They’re in a recreational league and because they’re so young it’s all about having fun – so of course no score is kept. Well, except by the parents!”
Joint Managing Director of officebroker.com Andy Haywood set up the sponsorship agreement, along with Billy’s help.
“When Andy found out that I was coaching the team we came up with the idea of having the company sponsor them, and pay for all of the kids’ uniforms, as well as providing moral support by attending games. We needed the equipment quickly, and Andy was happy to oblige – in fact he got it all sorted so quickly that the uniforms were ordered and printed within a few days!”
Andy, who is now a regular visitor at the games, said:
“The first time I went to see them play I was astounded! They’re all so keen, and they’re already developing some impressive skills on the pitch, despite being just 5 years old.”
The players’ parents are delighted by the agreement – mostly because they no longer have to pay for their children’s kit!
“Billy’s a good coach and the kids aren’t pressured in any way, they’re just out there to enjoy themselves and pick up some quality skills,” adds Andy. “And who knows, we might even see them playing in a national league one day!”
