USPSA is proud to announce that MK Battery has signed on as the sponsor and official battery of United States Power Soccer National Teams! This includes the Under-18 team for the upcoming FIPFA U18 tournament, the 2014 Copa Américas team, and the 2015 World Cup team!
Wayne Merdinger, MK Battery VP of Business Development and International Sales, said, “MK Battery is deeply honored to have the opportunity to lend our support to such a vital organization…the sport of Power Soccer enhances the lives of those with disabilities and we are extremely proud to be taking such an active role in the program. It is a perfect sponsorship match for our company. We have provided reliable power to wheelchair users for years, and we were flattered to learn that our batteries have been in use by most of these athletes for some time. A team sport brings competitive excitement into the lives of the athletes and their families. We want to help that opportunity grow for as many people as possible.”
Regarding the new partnership, USPSA President Dominic Russo said, “The USPSA is grateful to MK Battery for their sponsorship of this great sport. Their support will allow us to continue our mission to reach the many potential power wheelchair athletes we have yet to meet and to give them the opportunity to participate in this exciting sport.” The USPSA welcomes MK Battery as they join us in the beginning of a new era for our sport!
