Soccer Five, one of Florida’s most up and coming soccer operations, and Gus Machado Ford, one of the state’s premiere Ford dealerships, have announced an auto partnership and a soccer league bearing the Machado name.
“This partnership gives us the platform to really develop our Play, Talk, and Shop — and now Drive soccer!” said Scott Georgeson, president of Soccer Five.
“We look forward to providing great value to all Soccer Five members as we introduce Team Gus Machado Ford. Honk your horn when you see our Soccer Five Fords in your area soon!”
“We got very excited when the Soccer Five leadership team spoke to us about further increasing our involvement both in soccer and the local community,” said Hector Collado, Gus Machado’s general manager.
“We will be introducing a series of initiatives, open days and a Gus Machado League to maximize on our exposure with the new partnership,” Collado added.
“We’ll also feature the new Ford Fiesta on the live Soccer Five video and talk site.”
Earlier this year, Soccer Five USA entered in an agreement with Miami-Dade Parks and Recreation Department to design, build, and operate Soccer Five facilities at the Kendall Soccer Complex.
“Soccer Five’s ultimate goal is to encourage the local and national interest in soccer in the U.S., bolstered by the admirable performance of the U.S. team at the 2010 FIFA World Cup,” Georgeson noted.
The Soccer Five premise is simple, he continued, saying that lack of interest for the sport in America includes the length of the game and too few points scored per match. Soccer Five matches resolve both issues by making the field proportionately smaller, resulting in a shorter, more dynamic game with a higher score average.
Evolution of Soccer Five in the U.S. is to provide a game for all ages and skill levels, being played in every major U. S. city by World Cup 2014, to support future World Cup bids,” Georgeson added.
Gus Machado Ford is one of South Florida’s most popular dealerships with locations in Kendall, Hialeah and Miami featuring a full line of Ford cars and trucks, used vehicles, and full service and parts departments.
