Gulfport, Miss. – (December 1, 2011) — South Mississippi Soccer Club has received more than $3,800 in both funds and equipment from Delta World Tire and Uniroyal® Tire. Since 2000, the Uniroyal Soccer Program has donated nearly $14 million in funds and equipment, including over one million soccer balls, to more than 3,000 youth soccer leagues nationwide.

“Being in touch with our community and its soccer organization is such a meaningful experience,” said Paul Bernstein from Delta World Tire. “Knowing we are having a positive impact on these kids when we are giving out the soccer balls is priceless.”

“After 12 years of dedication, the program continues to grow and support more communities thanks to dealers like Delta World Tire,” said Ana Martin, Uniroyal Communications Manager. “Over 1,100 participants have connected with their local youth soccer programs across the United States. Bringing value to families is what Uniroyal believes in, and the soccer program enables us to do so in an unmatched way.”
