Soccer Association for Youth Scores with RainedOut Partnership
Industry-first FREE+ mobile communication system offered to 150,000 SAY Soccer members nationwide
LEESBURG, Va., May 10, 2011 – Omnilert®, LLC, maker of award-winning RainedOut™, the leading provider of event and group communication services, announced today a new partnership with SAY Soccer (Soccer Association for Youth, USA), a leader in youth soccer support throughout North America.
With this partnership, SAY Soccer members can now implement RainedOut’s industry-first FREE+ group text messaging system for use with their teams and leagues. This provides SAY members with a more efficient and innovative way to communicate time-sensitive information and allows them to enhance their fundraising capabilities by raising money through the sponsorship of their own messages. SAY Soccer joins several other prominent national organizations that have recently partnered with RainedOut and its nearly half-million users.
“The RainedOut service allows SAY Soccer Members to communicate up-to-the-minute information in a fashion that is simple, efficient and highly effective,” said Doug Wood, SAY Soccer national marketing/operations director. “When time sensitive information needs to reach the soccer community, there is no better service available than RainedOut. We are proud to call them a preferred partner in the SAY Soccer Network.”
“We see a lot of comparisons between RainedOut and the success SAY Soccer has had with its grassroots campaign nationally,” said Jim Fitzmaurice, director of user development with RainedOut. “We are very pleased to add SAY Soccer as a partner, and hope that the hundreds of thousands of their members enjoy our service.”
