San Diego, CA (December 15, 2011) Soccer Fanatic is excited to announce its new partnership with Scottsdale Soccer and the Blackhawks Program, taking over as their official team uniform and retail supplier. The new affiliation will see Scottsdale Blackhawks become a Nike Premier Club.
As a top competitive soccer program in Arizona, Scottsdale Blackhawks has teamed up with the Soccer Fanatic to grow the club and continue their success on the field. Soccer Fanatic becomes Scottsdale Soccer’s one stop shop for uniforms, equipment, fan gear and more. Joining on as a Nike Premier club gives the Blackhawks full access to the elite Nike experience including top level products, tournament support and more.

John Lococo and his team are regarded as the best in the business and we look forward to them working with Scottsdale Soccer. The new fan gear created by Soccer Fanatic will provide much sought after items for our cheering sidelines and followers.”
Continuing on about the new Nike relationship, Brown said: “We assembled a focus group that has spent the last two months researching the area of uniforms and we are delighted to announce a partnership with Nike and have achieved the distinction of being one of their Nike Premier Clubs. The new status allows the Blackhawks to join an Elite group of Clubs across the nation who are designated to carry their crest and will provide our players and coaching staff access to the best uniforms and footwear available.”
Soccer Fanatic started in 1997 and quickly grew into the premier source for authentic soccer gear on the West Coast after building several strong and long lasting relationships with local youth soccer clubs. The story is the same today, as they can list nearly every top Western Region youth soccer club on their roster of Member Clubs. “The staff at Soccer Fanatic is excited to have Scottsdale Soccer Club on board and can’t wait to deliver our unmatched level of personal service to the players and families of the club.
