Tidewater Sharks is excited to begin the new 2 year uniform cycle with Nike and soccer.com for the Fall 2019- Spring 2021 seasons. Michael Boyko and I met Jim Kupec, Regional Sale Manger, in Raleigh last year to discuss the potential switch to soccer.com. Jim showed us every aspect of their business model and we quickly realized how efficient and effective uniforms are produced by soccer.com . During the 2 day trip, we visited the production facility, marketing team, IT specialists and website designers, and during lunch we sat with the owner and spoke about soccer (no surprise!). As soon as we heard it only takes 5-7 days for parents to order the uniform online until it arrives at their doorstep, we knew this was the right time to transition to online ordering through soccer.com.
Once the club confirmed the decision to partner with soccer.com, the next step was to choose our brand. Nike were able to offer quality products at a competitive price. We looked at different designs and were able to put a package together for the same price as the Diadora package (less than $200). The uniforms are already on soccer.com. Click on club team search and choose Tidewater Sharks. Here you will find the uniform packages and it will list what is required. In addition, We are now at the final stages of updating the non uniform product designs for players, parents and coaches to purchase.
Uniforms will be available to order after players have been assigned numbers and try on the uniform at the registration night on June 5th or June 6th.
