As most parents can readily attest, communications 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.

WiFi calling innovator Republic Wireless announced today that they have joined two youth soccer organizations - US Club Soccer and Capital Area Soccer League (CASL) based out of Raleigh, NC - as the Official Wireless sponsor of both organizations. Part of a new, multi-channel platform, Republic intends to use the sponsorship to demonstrate its commitment to keeping families better connected.

In keeping with the trend of making WiFi free and easily accessible in public places, particularly where families are gathered, Republic’s sponsorship of CASL will, for the first time, help bring complimentary WiFi to their facility at WRAL Soccer Park. The soccer park welcomes more than 600,000 visitors each year for practices, games, and tournaments including the Raleigh National Soccer Series which brings in 1,400 teams from across the country.

“It is our goal to make sure our visitors have the best experience at our facility. Amenities like free and easily accessible WiFi are important to our coaches and players who are sharing their experiences across many social channels. And just as important, complimentary and easily accessible WiFi is quickly becoming an essential amenity for our players’ families and friends who often spend hours at the park, yet need to stay connected," said Gary Buete, CASL CEO. “We are thrilled to partner with Republic Wireless, a young brand known for pioneering the WiFi-first movement that continues to take the consumer wireless industry by storm.”

Team members with both US Club Soccer and CASL will be live streaming and creating behind the scenes content with smartphones powered by Republic Wireless to highlight the special connections between teammates. Together with the organizations, Republic Wireless is planning innovative digital communications initiatives designed to keep players, their families and followers better connected so they stay in the know.

“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 Chris Chuang, chief executive officer, Republic Wireless. “As most parents can readily attest, communications 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 incredibly excited about this sponsorship and the ability to use what we do to help keep these families better connected.”

To celebrate the sponsorship Republic Wireless will be offering exclusive offers to members of both organizations throughout the season starting with a $20 service credit for new customers.
