The T&T Pro League continues to attract interest from corporate Trinidad and Tobago—this time the League has signed a two-year deal with the leading sports distributor, Sports and Games Limited.
Chief Executive Officer of the League Dexter Skeene announced on Friday 10th June that Sports and Games would now be the official apparel and equipment provider for the League and its clubs.
The announcement was made at an official launch at the Sports and Games outlet at the West Mall Branch in Diego Martin.
This new agreement will see clubs receiving economical prices on all apparel and equipment purchases.
Sports and Games will customize uniforms for each individual team in order to suit their needs.
Sports and Games will also be responsible for the merchandising of team jerseys, shorts, replicas and memorabilia, so fans can purchase team t-shirts and show their support for their respective teams.
In addition, holders of the 2005 Pro League season pass can now use their pass as a discount card at any Sports and Games outlet nationwide and receive 10 % off on all purchases.
Sports and Games will also contribute 10% on all sales made with the season passes back to the League.
CEO of the League, Dexter Skeene emphasized, “The League was committed to giving its sponsors value for their money,” and he explained, “When we approached Mr. Charles Hadeed, Sports and Games Managing Director, he was taken aback because it was not for a hand out, but to establish a strategic business alliance from which both parties will mutually benefit.”
“The Pro League is not only committed to developing its clubs and the players but also to support the local industry,” said Skeene.
The league also used the opportunity to pay tribute to a few former national coaches by presenting them with the 2005 season pass/discount card—Edgar Vidale, Jimmy Blanc, Alvin Corneal and Muhammed Isa were all on spot to receive their passes.
