Sky Blue FC of the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) announced that it has entered a Platinum Club Partnership with Downtown United Soccer Club. Based in New York City, Downtown United Soccer Club is organized as a not-for-profit entity to educate, train and inspire youth soccer players of all ages and abilities in a positive, respectful, supportive environment. The club aims to foster a community that reflects the diversity of New York City in which children can develop a lifelong love for the beautiful game and realize their full potential as both players and people.
Sky Blue FC represents New Jersey in the NWSL and features U.S. Women’s National Team captain Carli Lloyd and midfielder Savannah McCaskill; Canada Women’s National Team players Kailen Sheridan and Janine Beckie; Mexico Women’s National Team striker Katie Johnson; New Zealand Women’s National Team defender Rebekah Stott; former NCAA All-Americans such as defender Erika Skroski (Rutgers) and midfielder Sarah Killion (UCLA); as well as 2015 MAC Hermann Trophy winner and Costa Rica Women’s National Team midfielder Raquel Rodriguez (Penn State).
As part of the relationship, Sky Blue FC players will be appearing at DUSC camp the week of August 13th to 17th, prior to Sky Blue FC hosting a DUSC Night on August 18th when the team takes on the visiting Utah Royals FC. DUSC players will receive exclusive experiences throughout the game, including escorting both Sky Blue FC and Utah Royals FC players during the National Anthem and access to a VIP Meet and Greet after the game.
“DUSC is extremely excited about beginning a partnership with our region’s professional club Sky Blue FC,” said Tom Frambach, General Manager at DUSC. “We feel it is important to offer players and families an opportunity to engage with and inspire to the highest level of professional soccer in our country.”
