Soccer Program to Assist Plainedge Club

For the 10th year in a row, the Uniroyal Soccer Program is supporting soccer communities across the country. BJ’s Wholesale Club will donate funds and equipment to the Plainedge Soccer Club.

Beginning Oct. 1, players will receive a certificate that can be redeemed for a free soccer ball at BJ’s Wholesale Club while supplies last. Uniroyal Tire and BJ’s Wholesale Club will also donate $2 for every Uniroyal tire sold during the 30-day program.

Founded in 2000, the Uniroyal Soccer Program has provided almost $12 million in funds and equipment, including nearly one million soccer balls, to more than 3,000 youth soccer programs in America and Canada. In celebration of the program’s 10th anniversary, Uniroyal Tire is giving away a soccer ball every day in 2009 via their website, www.UniroyalTires.com/sweeps. The daily winners will be eligible for the grand prize drawing at the end of the year which includes the top 10 items a family needs for the 2010 soccer season: a $500 gas card, a set of Uniroyal tires, a camera/video recorder, car service for the season, a GPS system, car detailing, a cooler/chair package, a $250 parents’ night out gift card, a $250 snack/food gift card, and a $500 sporting goods gift card.

“We are proud to support the Plainedge Soccer Club, which gives local youth the experience of being a part of a team and helps them learn valuable skills they can use on and off the field,” said Dave Shaw of BJ’s Wholesale Club. “I can’t wait to see the happy faces when the children get their free soccer balls.”
