Gers Seal American Partnership

Written by 

RANGERS Football Club is delighted to announce details of an exciting new partnership with Global Image Sports that will see the sports management company represent the club in North America.

Rangers Soccer Schools already have a well established programme in some regions of North America - including successful camps in New York, Florida, Indiana and Kansas which have introduced the Club to a new audience - but we are always looking at ways to develop and enhance our activities.

Our association with Global Image Sports, as their exclusive Scottish partner club, will help increase the exposure of Rangers Soccer Schools across the Atlantic.

The Rangers North American Academy will host a series of Elite Player ID Events in 2014 culminating in the RNAA National Camp, all staffed by Rangers fully qualified and professional coaching staff.

Greg Statt, Overseas Development Officer at Rangers, said: "North America is an important market for the Rangers Soccer Schools brand to target and having a company as experienced as GIS representing us out there can only be a positive.

"Their expertise will help enhance our profile across the Atlantic – where we already enjoy a vibrant overseas programme that has seen over 5000 participants from 15 countries taking part to date. 

"This partnership will see a massive increase and awareness in the club's Soccer School activities in North America allowing us to make contact with thousands of players, coaches and new supporters across the region.

"Global Image Sports have a successful track record partnering with European clubs for all to see and aim to increase brand awareness for the club in North America while also potentially unearthing a future star."

Rangers Manager Ally McCoist added: "It is great that this partnership has been created and I look forward to seeing how the relationship grows and hopefully a young player from these camps can follow in the footsteps of Carlos Bocanegra, Maurice Edu, Alejandro Bedoya and Fraser Aird and join us one day at Murray Park."

Mike Kelleher, Chief Operating Officer of Global Image Sports, said: "We are delighted to announce this partnership with Rangers Football Club, one of the most prestigious clubs in world football. We look forward to offering further opportunities and experiences to even more players and coaches in North America via this partnership."
