The Atlanta Silverbacks announced they will once again join forces with EarthLink, the nation’s next generation Internet service provider (ISP) in 2006. The fourth consecutive agreement will see EarthLink renew as the official partner of the Atlanta Silverbacks Men’s USL professional team. The ISP will once again enjoy the visibility of appearing on the front and center of the official jerseys of both the men’s team and the elite boys ‘Professional Development Program’ (PDP).
“Over the past four years, the Atlanta Silverbacks have helped spread the word about EarthLink’s anytime, anywhere, reliable Internet experience,” said Terry Montoya Griffin, EarthLink’s vice president of marketing. “As an Atlanta-based company, we are proud to, again, partner with a local sports organization to continue generating awareness among the Atlanta Silverbacks’ fans and supporters.”
Stephen Pratten, President/CEO of the Atlanta Silverbacks stated, “Long term, mutually beneficial relationships with quality partners are extremely important to the Atlanta Silverbacks as we share our vision and promote soccer across the region.” He added, “It’s important to us that the Atlanta Silverbacks organization is recognized as being of the highest integrity, quality and stability. We look for these same characteristics in our partners and we’ve found them at EarthLink.”
EarthLink has earned national recognition for its customer service and wide array of products and services. EarthLink currently serves more than five million subscribers, and aims to connect people to the power and possibilities of the Internet through a reliable and personalized experience its customers trust.
Over the past three years the Atlanta Silverbacks have grown into the largest soccer organization in the southeastern United States and have recently expanded operations to include both facility development and facility management. The opening of the Atlanta Silverbacks Park, the premiere soccer facility in the region, and the acquisition of the Atlanta Silverbacks Sports Center, the premiere indoor sports center in the region, have created a soccer organization unlike any other in the United States.
Specific terms and conditions of the agreement were not disclosed. For more information on the Atlanta Silverbacks please visit www.atlantasilverbacks.com.
