CHARLESTON, S.C. (April 5, 2017) – US Club Soccer has partnered with Republic Wireless, the nation’s first hybrid Wi-Fi/cellular network.
As the Official Wireless Partner of US Club Soccer, Republic Wireless becomes the presenting sponsor of the US Club Soccer Weekly e-newsletter and will have a presence at select US Club Soccer events throughout the year. In addition, Republic Wireless and US Club Soccer are collaborating to showcase behind-the-scenes footage of US Club Soccer members using smartphones powered by Republic Wireless. The footage will highlight the special bonds among teammates.
Through this partnership, Republic Wireless is demonstrating its commitment to keeping families better connected. US Club Soccer members receive a special, celebratory $20 service credit as new customers to Republic Wireless.
“US Club Soccer is thrilled to have Republic Wireless as our Official Wireless Partner,” said US Club Soccer CEO Kevin Payne. “Like us, Republic is an insurgent brand that offers new solutions for consumers. We appreciate that forward-looking approach, and are excited to have a partner as committed to innovation as we are.”
“We launched Republic Wireless in 2011 to change the game in consumer wireless by making it remarkably simple and affordable to have a smartphone. This sponsorship is a perfect extension of our overall mission and reason for being,” said Republic Wireless CEO Chris Chuang. “As most parents can readily attest, communication is key to coordinating life both on and off the field, especially when you have multiple children involved in sports and other extracurricular activities. I am super excited about this sponsorship and the ability to use what we do to help keep families better connected.”
