Staten Island, N.Y. - Capelli Sport’s growth on the east coast continues to expand following its latest partnership with one of the longest standing youth soccer organizations in New York.
Capelli Sport has become the exclusive teamwear brand of the Staten Island Youth Soccer League (SISL).
With more than 25 clubs, SISL hosts one of the largest youth soccer leagues in the tristate area. Founded in 1978, the SISL was created to foster and develop youth sports within the Staten Island, NY community through the education, development and promotion of soccer.
SISL’s mission is to encourage the development and growth of soccer clubs and teams to make the game more available to players of all skill levels. This coincides with the league’s dedication to nurturing the physical, mental and emotional growth and development of the youth, while simultaneously encouraging sportsmanship and the on-field development of each and every individual.
Founded by President George Altirs in 2011, Capelli Sport is an innovative sportswear and teamwear brand focused on designs of the highest quality, latest fabric technologies and design functionality for world-class performance on the field.
Currently, Capelli Sport is the official teamwear brand for numerous youth, semi-professional and professional soccer organizations around the world, including, but not limited to, Cedar Stars Academy in New Jersey and New York, St. Benedict’s Preparatory School in Newark, NJ, Wurzburger Kickers in 2. Bundesliga, and MSV Duisburg in 3. Liga of Germany.
Altirs expressed the importance of partnering with SISL as Capelli Sport looks to provide world-class sports apparel to local youth and recreation clubs.
“This is a very exciting opportunity for the Capelli Sport brand,” Altirs said. “We continue to grow within the United States and having this partnership in Staten Island, New York will prove to be pivotal to our continued growth.”
In addition to becoming the official teamwear brand of the league, Capelli Sport will be the sportswear and teamwear provider for the Staten Island Soccer Club (SISC), which is managed by the SISL.
President of SISL, Bill Smith, said the move to Capelli Sport will help facilitate the future growth of the league.
“We as a board would like every child to have the opportunity to play the world's best game,” Smith said.
This partnership will begin Spring 2017 when SISL’s High School League participants will be exclusively wearing Capelli Sport gear.
