“Our sponsorship of this event adds to our existing agreement with the Mississippi Soccer Association,” Admiral Sports CEO Paul Hamburger stated.  “It takes our relationship even further, bringing us even closer.  This is about state associations working with Admiral, which allows them to give  more value to their member clubs.”

Mississipi Soccer AssociationThe Mississippi Soccer Association is a nonprofit organization that represents over 16,000 youth soccer players, 3,000 coaches and 1,000 referees throughout the State of Mississippi.  MSA consists of various leagues that register youth players (boys and girls) from ages of 4 through 19 and adult players 20 and older, throughout the state. It is their mission to serve Mississippi by promoting soccer and educating players, coaches, officials, and families in a safe and fun environment.

“Recreational soccer is the foundation by which our organization is built,” Mississippi Soccer Association Executive Director Kay Bouler added. “To have Admiral sponsor our recreational state cup, now known as the Admiral Cup, is something we are extremely excited about.  Admiral has gone above and beyond to help us with this event and we look forward to a long and prosperous partnership.”
