Capelli Sport Becomes Official Uniform, Apparel and Equipment provider for the Skyline Elite Soccer Club, SOCA and Augusta United Soccer Club.
Today Capelli Sport announced a multi-year partnership with the Virginia Soccer Alliance and will become the exclusive uniform and apparel provider for Skyline Elite Soccer Club, SOCA and Augusta United Soccer Club based in Western Virginia.
The Virginia Soccer Alliance is a collaboration of multiple soccer entities in the Western VA region with a shared purpose and philosophy. Member clubs include SOCA, Augusta United and the Skyline Elite Soccer Club. Together, Alliance members put on programming including tournaments, travel leagues and teams, recreational programs, camps, clinics and personal training. The Virginia Soccer Alliance was formalized in 2021 with the goal of unifying player development platforms in western VA.
The three sister clubs work together as part of the Virginia Soccer Alliance serving different communities and pools of players. SOCA and Augusta United are neighboring community-based clubs in Charlottesville and Staunton/Waynesboro, VA respectively. Skyline Elite operates on a national platform, serving the most ambitious and highest achieving players in western VA.
With over 7,500 soccer players playing with Alliance clubs, VSA serves all levels of play from 4 years old through adult. The organization fields over 65 travel teams annually in a variety of local, regional and national competitions.
Executive Director of the Virginia Soccer Alliance, Matt Wilson said:
“Our staff is excited about this long-term partnership with Capelli Sport. The Virginia Soccer Alliance continues to grow with clubs in different leagues including the ECNL Boys, Girls Academy League, ECNL Regional League and our own local Skyline Club Soccer League. With membership growing annually we are excited to have a uniform and equipment partner we can grow with.”
Wilson added, “With different clubs and distinct brands a part of the Alliance, it is important for us to have a uniform supplier that can provide each club with a unique look all their own. The custom designed uniform options that Capelli Sport is able to provide our clubs is incredibly impressive and much appreciated. I have been impressed with the professionalism and communication the Capelli Sport team has demonstrated through the bidding process, which makes partnering with them very easy.
"Capelli Sport will be more than a uniform kit provider. The player pathways and opportunities made available to our clubs through their network and partnerships overseas will provide additional benefits. We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with Capelli Sport." Wilson continued.
President and CEO of Capelli Sport, George Altirs said:
“We’re proud to announce our new partnership with the Virginia Soccer Alliance, and we look forward to working with outstanding clubs like SOCA, Skyline Elite, and Augusta United for years to come. The Virginia Soccer Alliance is committed to growing the game of soccer in the western VA region and aiding in the development of its players, both on and off the field. By adding them to the Capelli Sport network of clubs and associations, we increase opportunities for travel play and experience-sharing that will benefit not only the VSA, but also our other partners, and our company itself.”
