Our Mission: To be the world's leading authentic grassroots soccer company, building strong relationships in a vibrant, creative and ethical environment. To inform, inspire and innovate.
Based in Hillsborough, North Carolina, our company was founded in 1984 by the Moylan family to provide American soccer players with equipment and information unavailable anywhere else. We mailed our first catalog, Eurosport, in 1984 and launched our website, SOCCER.COM, in 1994. Since our first soccer ball left the warehouse, we have promoted the game of soccer at all levels and educated players, referees and their families about the game and its equipment.
