With Euro 2020 and the Copa América football tournaments currently well underway, it’s the ideal time to announce our first ever football sponsorship deal. As Glasswall continues to grow in the U.S., we are delighted to be supporting Orange County Soccer Club, the County’s only professional soccer team and part of the United Soccer League (USL), the fastest-growing Division II professional soccer league in the world comprising 34+ teams across the United States.
Orange County SC was one of 12 founding members of the USL during its inaugural 2011 season. The team plays their home games at the Orange County Great Park’s Championship Soccer Stadium located in Irvine, CA. Nestled right in the heart of the Great Park, the Championship Soccer Stadium has a capacity of over 5,000, and the team is currently very strongly placed in second place of Group A of the USL, just three points behind leaders Phoenix Rising FC with a game in hand.
The Glasswall brand is now appearing pitch-side at the club’s stadium, and we are one of a number of UK-based businesses actively involved in supporting the team. Glasswall SVP of Marketing, Sharon Forder, said: “It’s exciting to be working with the club to raise our profile in California and feels especially fitting given the great defence the team obviously has. We’ll follow their fortunes with huge interest throughout the rest of the season.”
“We’re delighted to have Glasswall as a partner,” said Dan Rutstein, SVP of International at OCSC. “We are a team with a community heart and a global vision and bringing in partners like Glasswall, a British cybersecurity company with grand ambitions in the US, is an exciting opportunity for both of us. We’re pleased to support them as they grow here in California and beyond.”
