WARWICK, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SquadLocker, a leading custom apparel and gear software and fulfillment service, has formed a strategic licensing partnership with Under the Lights Flag Football to modernize and transform the purchase, customization, and fulfillment of apparel and gear for Under the Lights coaches, members, and fans.
With over 70,000 participants across North America, Under the Lights Flag Football is a national youth flag football league for kids in 1st-8th grade, with the emphasis on promoting a competitive, confidence building, non-contact experience for both boys and girls of all skill levels. With SquadLocker’s always-open online retail store technology and fulfillment, Under the Lights Flag Football can provide an enhanced customer experience for coaches, parents, players and fans by giving them the flexibility they need in ordering and fulfillment.
“We know that coaches, admins, and parents want rapid, direct to home fulfillment for last minute registrations and replacing lost uniforms. The current market fails to deliver on those needs,” said SquadLocker President, Scott Brazina. “By partnering with Under the Lights Flag Football, our customer facing software, combined with single unit customization and on demand fulfillment, provides an integrated solution optimized to serve those needs.”
“OneTeam Youth is proud to partner with SquadLocker, which will help us deliver on our commitment to develop a growing presence in national youth sports and support the next generation of players,” said Brent Lowder, CEO of One Team Youth. “As one of the fastest growing youth flag football leagues in the country, we are thrilled to work with SquadLocker and together continue building an innovative, industry leading youth sports league. Their technology platform for online retailing, customization and fulfillment of apparel and gear is the solution we were looking for to reduce friction for all.”
The three-year licensing partnership and always-open online retail store technology launches on February 28, 2022.
