September 4, 2018 — DICK’S Sporting Goods and DICK’S Team Sports HQ announced a multi-year, strategic partnership with Michigan Soccer Association (MSA). Michigan Soccer Association is a member of the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA) and is located in the Midwest Region (Region II). MSA is also a member of the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) and the Federation International Futbol Association (FIFA) and serves the lower peninsula of the State of Michigan where they provide continuing development of adult soccer players, coaches, referees, and administrators.
DICK’S Team Sports HQ will serve as the Official Soccer Management Technology Partner and the Online Registration provider to Michigan Soccer Association.
“In choosing an online registration program, the Michigan Soccer Association took nearly two years to make an informed decision on behalf of its membership. To manage our player registrations, fee collection, and liability waivers, MSA chose Affinity Sports as the best provider and best choice for reliability, costs, and support. Affinity Sports is more than a means to satisfy national registration requirements. It will allow the Michigan Soccer Association to meet the needs of our member leagues and players, as well as manage registrations, ensure timely collection of player fees, and maintain a database of current players with contact information,” said Dyann C. Pugliese, Business Administrator / Director for Michigan Soccer Association.
It is with great pleasure we welcome Michigan Soccer Association to the DICK’S Team Sports HQ family,” said Eric Foster, Strategic Account Manager, DICK’S Team Sports HQ. “We look forward to supporting MSA’s mission and its members, and having the opportunity to partner with a leading adult soccer organization.”
DICK’S Team Sports HQ currently serves adult and youth sports organizations representing over nine million young athletes, including US Youth Soccer and Pop Warner, among others. More information on DICK’S Teams Sports HQ can be found by visiting teamsportshq.dsg.com.
