Admiral Sports is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Indios Denver.
“We’re very excited to be working with Indios Denver, which allows us to bring yet another UPSL club into the Admiral family,” Admiral Sports CEO Paul Hamburger stated. “Companies choose Admiral because of the value, factory direct pricing, and a custom kit that promotes the club brand. We also offer our clubs an online store and service that's personal from the owners of the business. Admiral has been innovating in the soccer market since 1914 and we continue to do so here in 2016 and beyond.”
Their youth club, Indios Denver SC, participates in the Colorado Soccer Association (CSA) and that was founded in 2008. The club’s goal is to develop players so when they can't play in the youth teams anymore they have the option to play with Indios Denver FC UPSL.
Indios Denver FC was formed in 2015 with the hope of making this team semi-pro and to give the opportunity to players that didn't make it to college soccer the opportunity to continue their soccer careers. Indios Denver FC has also competed in the MVP Colorado Adult Soccer League.
“We choose to partner with Admiral because we been with adidas for five years and it was about time to make some changes,” Indios Denver FC President Irvin Gonzalez added. “And so we saw this great opportunity to partner with Admiral and took it.”
Indios Denver SC serves players from U-5 through U-18, while Indios Denver FC focuses on developing players in the 19-25 age range.
The club is led by Oscar Gonzalez, Irvin Gonzalez, and Edgar Espinoza. Oscar is the Owner and President of Indios Denver SC, while Irvin serves as President of Indios Denver FC. Espinoza is the head coach for the UPSL team. Espinoza used to coach Mexican Second Division side Club de Fútbol Astros de Juárez located in in Juárez, Chihuahua.
“To be honest, the only things we are hoping to gain from this partnership is, quality and time,” Irvin Gonzalez concluded. “Just yesterday we received our parka jackets and we really loved it. Great quality on the product and the production time was fast, something that is crucial for us.”
