Kansas City, MO – The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) is pleased to announce a four-year extension with Select Sport America as the official soccer ball of the NAIA.
Select Sport America will serve as the sponsor of the men’s and women’s soccer national championship opening rounds through 2021, as well as the ball provider for all NAIA regular season, conference, and championship play. The company will also continue its partnership with the NAIA’s Champions of Character program, which helps student-athletes build character, both on and off the field.
“Select Sport America provides a superior product which helps to elevate the NAIA student-athlete experience,” said Jim Carr, NAIA president and CEO. “The NAIA looks forward to the continued success of this partnership.”
Select’s Brillant Super soccer ball, which will be used by the NAIA, has been utilized by some of the best in the world. Durable on both grass and turf, the Brillant Super performs accurately in all kinds of weather.
“We’re very excited to have renewed and prolonged our successful cooperation with NAIA, which is now approaching ten years,” said Lars Nielsen, President of Select Sport America. “One of the reasons the NAIA and Select make great partners is that both organizations understand the importance of character and professionalism. We also believe strongly in the quality of our product and the quality of soccer in the NAIA.”
