GULFPORT, Miss. —  The Uniroyal Soccer Program is 12 years strong and rolling forward this season with more dealers participating every year. Starting August 26, families of South Mississippi Soccer Club will receive certificates that can be redeemed for a free soccer ball at Delta World Tire, while supplies last. After the 30-day program period, South Mississippi Soccer Club will receive $2 for every Uniroyal® tire sold to the general public on behalf of Uniroyal and Delta World Tire.

Since the program’s inception in 2000, the Uniroyal Soccer Program has provided nearly $14 million in funds and equipment, including over one million soccer balls, to more than 3,000 youth soccer leagues across the United States.

“Contributing to our local community and supporting our youth is so important to us,” said Paul Bernstein of Delta World Tire. “We look forward to connecting with players and families from South Mississippi Soccer Club when they come in for their free soccer ball.”

“It is an honor to provide such a distinct program for our dealers to stay involved in their communities,” said Ana Martin, Uniroyal Communications Manager. “Soccer leagues depend on donations from partners like Delta World Tire, and we are pleased to facilitate that relationship.”

Uniroyal announces the introduction of the new Laredo® Cross Country Tour tire. Launching August 1, 2011, this affordable tire is designed specifically for CUVs, SUVs and light trucks. It offers the perfect combination of durability, long-lasting wear, all-season performance and a 60,000-Mile Manufacturers Limited Warranty.
