Longtime Madison-based exhibit and design company Southern Convention Services has aquired an ownership stake in Rocket City United. As part of the deal, SCS will become the Title Partner for the club and will feature prominently on the front of the RCU jerseys during the 2010 season. In addition, RCU will relocate the team's corporate offices to the SCS headquarters in Madison, AL.
The partnership comes at a critical time for the defending NPSL South East Region champion. Following the 2010 regular season, RCU will host the NPSL Final Four to be held from July 29-31 and SCS's expertise seems perfectly fit to help make the event a success.
In addition, RCU is planning to build a training facility along with soccer fields for community use in the County Line Road area near SCS headquarters.SCS president Bryan Boyd had this to say about the partnership, "Southern Convention Services is excited about partnering with Rocket City United in Madison to promote the highest level of soccer locally. Madison will benefit from a successful soccer organization that not only promotes player development, but is also giving back to the community."
