Sockatyes, developer of an innovative patented product designed to keep soccer socks in place without elastic material, has entered into an agreement as a corporate partner of the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS).
Sockatyes, which will be the exclusive NFHS corporate partner for soccer, is the 22nd corporate partner of the NFHS.
The Sockatyes product helps in preventing muscle cramps and injuries by conforming to the size of a player’s calf while allowing movement. Another benefit is the quick release tab that allows for rapid removal if an athlete requires medical treatment. Since 2001, Sockatyes has evolved with the involvement of athletes and sports therapists.
“We are looking forward to our partnership with Sockatyes,” said Bob Gardner, NFHS executive director. “This innovative product should be beneficial to the more than 800,000 boys and girls who play high school soccer.”
Approved by the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), the Sockatyes product became the first change to international football kits in more than 100 years when shinguards were introduced. Sockatyes is also proudly partnered with La Liga de Futbol Profesional (LFP), which is Spain’s professional football governing body.
“Sockatyes is very excited to be the exclusive NFHS corporate partner for soccer,” said Stanley Yu, chairman of Sockatyes Holding Limited. “We are established and proven in professional sports, including La Liga in Spain, and look forward to supporting the mission of the NFHS and working with student-athletes, coaches and referees across the country.”
With its roots in professional European soccer, Sockatyes provides patented and FIFA-approved apparel and advertising products. Sockatyes straps keep socks in place and are preferable to tourniquet-style alternatives. PortiRed's flexible advertising space near the goal provides new revenue sources for schools.
