The Virginia Soccer Alliance is a collaboration of multiple soccer entities in the Western VA region with a shared purpose and philosophy. Member clubs include SOCA, Augusta United Soccer Club and the Skyline Elite Soccer Club. Together, Alliance members put on programming including tournaments, travel leagues and teams, recreational programs, camps, clinics and personal training. The Virginia Soccer Alliance was formalized in 2021 with the goal of unifying player development platforms in western VA.
Executive Director of the Virginia Soccer Alliance, Matt Wilson said:
“Our staff is excited about this long-term partnership with Capelli Sport. The Virginia Soccer Alliance continues to grow with clubs in different leagues including the ECNL Boys, Girls Academy League, ECNL Regional League and our own local Skyline Club Soccer League. With membership growing annually we are excited to have a uniform and equipment partner we can grow with.”
Wilson added, “With different clubs and distinct brands a part of the Alliance, it is important for us to have a uniform supplier that can provide each club with a unique look all their own. The custom designed uniform options that Capelli Sport is able to provide our clubs is incredibly impressive and much appreciated. I have been impressed with the professionalism and communication the Capelli Sport team has demonstrated through the bidding process, which makes partnering with them very easy.
“Capelli Sport will be more than a uniform kit provider. The player pathways and opportunities made available to our clubs through their network and partnerships overseas will provide additional benefits. We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with Capelli Sport.” Wilson continued.
